About the tour
The wild coastlines of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly await. Explore St Ives, Tresco, and St Mary's, surrounded by azure waters and filled with tropical gardens, seaside towns and isolated beaches. And, end your trip with a unique rail experience - an overnight journey on the Riviera Sleeper train.
At London Paddington, we meet at the First Class lounge ahead of our rail journey to Penzance. Or arrival, we transfer to our hotel in Carbis Bay or Falmouth (departure dependent) where we enjoy dinner. On Day 2, we explore the beauty of Cornwall, catching the train to pretty St Ives, where there's free time. From here, we drive along stunning Cape Cornwall to Land's End, Britain's most south-westerly point, then onto Penzance for some free time before returning to our hotel for dinner.

Well organised, with adequate free time
When we first booked we thought it was Skybus both ways. But had to take the early ferry across one way. Overcrowded train to Penzance which was late into Paddington and so could not sit in any of our reserved seatt. No hot drinks available for the entire journey.

We had a good holiday, but as often happens with GRJ holidays, the local 'guides' are inclined to talk far, far too much.
Mr R Watson
The arrangements were vg, Tour Manager first rate, hotels good with helpful staff. And the weather was kind.
Being the Guinea Pig group to cut the ice for this tour we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Well planned and managed. Well done !!
