Summer Luncheon date TBC



Our special 10th Anniversary Lunch on 20 May was in the New Forest. We travelled by Luxury Coliseum Coach from our normal pick-ups, as opposed to meeting at a local venue. During our pre-lunch New Forest tour, we enjoyed some wonderful displays of colourful Rhododenrons in their natural habitats before we arrived at the historic ….


Like a magical secret, Rhinefield House is located deep within the New Forest National Park. With beautiful surroundings and a blend of Tudor and Gothic architecture, Rhinefield is the most perfect country hotel in the New Forest for a a special meal. It is also the ideal setting for an indulgent break or a fairytale wedding. The great outdoors is right on the doorstep, whether its pony trekking, long walks in the forest or a day trip to the sea.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.

Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.

Linda Hunt

Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery Tour
