I had bought my wife a Red Letter Day experience a couple of years ago - City Cruise from Poole to Swanage, a trip on the steam railway from Swanage to Corfe Castle and back, then return boat to Poole. When we booked it last year, together with a couple of nights B & B locally in Poole, it was cancelled at the last minute due to bad weather. So we had another try this year, in June rather than October, and luckily the weather was good, and the trip went ahead. We had a great day, and spent some time in Swanage which is where we had our honeymoon 13 years ago - we got back to Poole around 5pm, just as the weather was starting to change, so we were happy that it turned out so well. Highly recommended, but just be aware it is dependent on the weather on the day!
