Meet your Tour Manager at the First Class Lounge in London Paddington, ahead of our journey by First Class rail down to Plymouth. On arrival, we transfer to our hotel, the 3-Star Duke of Cornwall hotel. We enjoy our fi rst meal together this evening.
On Day 2, we transfer to the station for a journey on the Paignton Steam Railway, a beautiful and scenic route that takes us through the delightful southern countryside. Following this, we join a passenger ferry to enjoy a delightful cruise up the river at the estuary, venturing to Dartmouth for some time at leisure, perhaps to enjoy lunch.
We take the ferry back to Kingswear, where we transfer by coach to Coleton Fishacre, a rather quaint house that is surrounded by wildly verdant gardens.
After breakfast, we take a drive through atmospheric Dartmoor, stopping off at various scenic points along the way. We venture on to RHS Rosemoor, where we enjoy entrance to the garden as well as a guided tour. These gardens boast of a veritable plethora of flora, from a delightful selection of trees, to bushes and beds just bursting with vibrant and glorious flowers.
Today, after breakfast, we transfer by coach to the station, where we join the train to take us back to London for our final leg of the tour. This evening, you are at leisure in London, perhaps to find dinner at some of the numerous unique restaurants that make London so beloved by foodies around the world.
Today we visit the world-renowned and iconic Chelsea Flower Show. The entirety of your time here is at leisure, to explore the amazing displays that are put together by passionate horticulturists from around the world.
The incredible theatrics that are displayed combine seamlessly with the rather more traditional gardens to give an entertaining and enthralling experience around every corner. This evening, we enjoy a final dinner together at the hotel. After breakfast on Day 6, the tour ends, and you are free to depart at your leisure.
