Cornish Coast and Gardens
The charming fishing villages, pretty harbours and rolling countryside have attracted visitors to Cornwall for years. In addition to featuring a variety of these, our itinerary also includes the iconic Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Cornwall • The Eden Project • Boat Trip across Falmouth Harbour • Lost Gardens of Heligan
Day 1 Travel to the hotel near Newquay with a recommended stop in Exeter.
Day 2 Excursion to the world famous Eden Project. This unique regeneration project has transformed a scar on the landscape into a global garden featuring two enormous glass biomes. The Eden Project is always changing so, even if you've been before, you'll see something different next time. Allow 4-5 hours per visit.
Day 3 Travel south to Falmouth for some free time to explore before taking a boat journey to Truro across Falmouth's magnificent harbour and along the waters of the River Fal. Passengers can enjoy a sailor's view of St Just, Trelissick and Tolverne. (Note that at low tide, the ferry moors at Malpas Village rather than Truro.) Spend some time exploring the cobbled streets of Truro before returning to the hotel.
Day 4 Travel to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, amazingly discovered in 1991 under a blanket of brambles after 70 years of neglect. Many of the original plants have been rescued. We recommend an afternoon visit to the delightful village of Mevagissey, one of Cornwall's most picturesque fishing villages and Fowey, a Designated Area of Natural Beauty.
Day 5 Homeward journey.
