Coastal Cornwall & its Captivating Gardens
NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT*
Discover the very best of Cornwall as we explore this beguiling county. From our base in picturesque Falmouth, we encounter Cornwall's charming harbours and fabled Land's End, we discover the enthralling Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan.
We begin our Cornish break in the pretty Cornish Riviera resort of Falmouth, where we are welcomed at the Royal Duchy Cornwall hotel with tea and coffee on arrival.
Today we are immersed in the beauty of Cornwall's west coast as we take in the spectacular golden sands and seascapes as we travel along the St Ives Bay Line. After free time in the picturesque town of St Ives, we continue by coach around Cape Cornwall, seeing legendary Land's End and Penzance, where romantic St Michael's Mount enchants from the sea.
Your entire day is free to explore Falmouth at leisure. Perhaps visit the Art Gallery or the fascinating Maritime Museum, dedicated to small boats and Cornwall's maritime heritage. You could also head to Pendennis Castle, or maybe take in one of the region's famous gardens such as the delightful Trebah Gardens.
Today we make a visit to one of the English Riviera's highlights, the Eden Project. Situated in an old china clay pit, this iconic landmark is a celebration of environmental conservation.
This afternoon, make a visit to the picturesque fishing town of Fowey. This delightful place was once frequented by Privateers, who were drawn to the town thanks to its sheltered harbour.
This morning we visit one of the most mysterious estates in England. The former Tremayne Estate is home to the extraordinary Lost Gardens of Heligan, which have been remarkably restored to their former glory over the last thirty years. We continue to Bodmin, where we join the famous Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway. At our hotel this evening, we enjoy a farewell meal.
After breakfast, the tour concludes and you are free to make your journey home independently, or perhaps spend a little more time exploring further this beautiful county.
