Best of Devon and Cornwall
from $2115
Duration: 6 Days
The river valleys of romantic Devon and Cornwall take centre stage on this journey through Bath, rural Wiltshire, and the ruined Tintagel Castle where, legend has it, King Arthur was born.
Day 1
London – Windsor – Bath – Bristol (2 Nights)
Leave the bright lights of the British capital behind and journey through lush landscapes to the historic market town of Windsor. Journeying west, we arrive in the stately Georgian town of Bath, whose beautiful Pulteney Bridge and 15th-century Gothic Abbey provide a picturesque backdrop for the Roman Baths from which the city takes its name. See the steamy thermal pool of the 'Great Bath' before travelling to easygoing Bristol, where we'll enjoy an orientation of the city including views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Brunel's SS Great Britain, the world's first ocean-going luxury liner.
Day 2
Longleat Stately Home and Lacock Excursion
Leaving trendy Bristol behind, we embark on a scenic drive through the English countryside, arriving at Longleat Stately Home where we'll 'Dive Into Culture' and gain insights into centuries of British tradition. Embark on an included guided tour one of the country's finest stately homes, currently home to the 7th Marquess of Bath. Wander through its grand rooms featuring priceless collections of art, antiques and tapestries collected by 15 generations and admire the exquisite Capability Brown landscaped parkland. Later, we stop in the picturesque village of Lacock - its honey-coloured stone cottages and 15th-century inns have served as an iconic backdrop for such famous films as 'Pride & Prejudice', 'Harry Potter' and Downton Abbey.
Day 3
Bristol – Brixham – Buckfast Abbey – Plymouth
The sounds and smell of the sea beckon as you make your way to Devon and stop in the fishing town of Brixham where Sir Francis Drake's ship Golden Hind is permanently moored. Spend some free time strolling through its hilly streets and working up an appetite for your 'Be My Guest' experience where you'll 'Connect With Locals' and savour local flavours. Continue to Buckfast Abbey where you'll 'Dive Into Culture' and gain insights into how Benedictine monks have lived and prayed for nearly 1,000 years. Venture to Plymouth next, where pilgrims once left English shores for an unknown new world. This evening you could choose to toast to their bravery over an optional dinner with your fellow travellers.
Day 4
Plymouth – St. Ives – Tintagel – Exeter (2 Nights)
Continue your journey to lovely St. Ives, a popular retreat for artists, surfers and sun-worshippers. On the way, enjoy views of St. Michael's Mount with its 17th-century castle, perched dramatically atop the tidal island near the seaside town of Penzance. Stop at Tintagel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, and admire its rugged clifftop vantage point overlooking the wild Atlantic. Your final destination today is the sophisticated Devon centre of Exeter, whose medieval centre is yours to explore on your own this evening.
Day 5
Exeter – Dunster – Lynmouth and Dartmoor National Park
This morning, visit the Exeter Cathedral with its 15th-century astronomical clock and misericords, said to be the earliest complete set in the United Kingdom. Continue to the Somerset village of Dunster, where you'll have some free time for lunch and an opportunity to view its castle on your own. Visit Lynmouth next, the walking capital of Exmoor, then drive through the brooding landscape of Dartmoor National Park, stopping at a traditional pub for a memorable Farewell Dinner with your travel companions. Return to Exeter, where you'll spend the night.
Day 6
Exeter – Stonehenge – Salisbury – London
This morning, visit the ancient monoliths at Stonehenge, which rise imposingly on Salisbury Plain, imagining a time when pagans and druids would gather in their mysterious midst. We'll visit the town of Salisbury, home to Britain's tallest spire, before returning to London where our memorable journey through Devon and Cornwall comes to an end.
