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 easy-going 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.
Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn City Centre
Meal: Welcome Reception

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 of 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 a iconic backdrop for such famous films as ‘Pride & Prejudice’ and ‘Harry Potter’, among others.
Meal: Full Breakfast

DAY 3

Bristol – Dunster – Exmoor National Park – Lynmouth – Bideford
Take a step back in time to the medieval village of Dunster with its picturesque thatched cottages, 17th-century yarn market and Working Watermill, built on the site of a mill mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Driving through the dramatic landscapes of Exmoor National Park, we stop in Lynmouth for some time at leisure and perhaps a ride on the famous funicular cliff lift to nearby Lynton. Our home for this evening is the historic port town of Bideford with its imposing 15th-century bridge which spans the Torridge River.
Hotel: Durrant House
Meal: Full Breakfast

DAY 4

Bideford – Tintagel – Exeter (2 Nights)
Tales of knights and medieval myths and legends take centre stage today as we enjoy views of the ruined Tintagel Castle, reputedly the birthplace of King Arthur. We ‘Connect With Locals’, joining the Kempthorne family for a light Cornish Be My Guest lunch and tales of farming heritage at their homely Cornish farmstead, which has been in their family since the early 18th century. As the day draws to its close, we sit in quiet contemplation with the sounds of choral music filling the historic St. Martin’s Church, as part of the ‘Make A Difference’ initiative to support The Churches Conservation Trust. Spend the rest of the evening exploring the medieval centre of Exeter.
Hotel: Mercure Southgate
Meal: Full Breakfast,Lunch

DAY 5

Cornish Excursion including Plymouth, St. Ives and Dartmoor National Park
Our journey continues along the dramatic coastline of Cornwall today, past smugglers’ coves and quaint coastal villages. We stop in the maritime city of Plymouth and view the Mayflower Steps, from which brave pilgrims are said to have left English shores for an unknown new world. Next, we travel to lovely St. Ives, a popular retreat for artists, before enjoying views of St. Michael’s Mount with its 17th-century castle, sitting dramatically atop the tidal island near the seaside town of Penzance. We travel through the brooding landscape of Dartmoor National Park, stopping at a traditional pub for a memorable Farewell Dinner with our travel companions.
Meal: Full Breakfast,Farewell Dinner

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.
