Thursday 27th: Enjoy the first day of your holiday as we make our way to the far south west corner of England to the delightful town of Penzance. Arriving at The Queens Hotel you can enjoy a nice cup of tea/coffee whilst your luggage is taken to your room.
Friday 28th: After breakfast our destination today is the attractive resort and fishing town of Falmouth. We begin with an included visit to the National Maritime Museum, which gives a fascinating insight into the maritime traditions of Falmouth and beyond. We now have time to explore Falmouth at leisure, with its enchanting combination of picturesque, narrow streets and a fascinating, bustling harbour as well as many attractions such as the Falmouth Duck Tour, Falmouth Aquarium and Falmouth Lifeboat Station to name but a few.
Saturday 29th: Today we head for the far western shores of the mainland to Lands’ End. One of Britain’s favourite destinations and one where everyone must have their photo taken at the famous Land’s End signpost! Admire the spectacular scenery and awe inspiring cliff views to Longships and Wolf Rock lighthouses and the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles to the west. We have time to enjoy the attractions which have been included before returning to Penzance for the remainder of the day.
Sunday 30th: After breakfast we make our way to Trengwainton Garden. With 25 acres bursting with exotic trees and shrubs there is plenty to see, from the lovingly restored organic walled kitchen garden to the wide open views across Mount’s Bay, be sure to take your camera! This afternoon we take a scenic drive across to the north Cornish coast and the pretty resort of St Ives. Here you have time to explore, why not visit the famous Tate Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Museum or find a comfortable spot to watch the world go by in the picturesque harbour.
Monday 31st: Sadly, after a hearty Cornish breakfast we must say farewell to Penzance and make our way home.
