Day 1 WINCHESTER/DURDLE DOOR/EXETER
Depart London and travel out through the old kingdom of Wessex to its ancient capital – the historic city of Winchester. Having explored this fascinating old town with its magnificent cathedral and historic Great Hall, your tour will continue to the dramatic south Devon Coast enjoying panoramic views over white sandy beaches and the natural rock arch of Durdle Door. An afternoon here to explore some of the coast before arriving at the historic city of Exeter, an important fortified settlement in Roman times, your base for 2 nights.
Day 2 DARTMOOR/EXETER
Your morning is spent exploring the magnificent wilderness of Dartmoor, the ancient "Clapper Bridge" at Postbridge and the historic market town of Tavistock, home to Sir Francis Drake. Return to Exeter in the early afternoon to explore this Roman town, with its underground passages, ancient walls, Royal Albert Memorial museum and its famous 12th century Norman Cathedral. Your second night is spent here.
Day 3 BODMIN MOOR/TINTAGEL
Travel west into the heart of Arthurian legend country and the Celtic Kingdom of Cornwall. The day’s highlights include the ancient capital of Cornwall, Launceston with its 12th century Norman keep perched overlooking Bodmin Moor. This is an area where legends abound – tales of piskies and spriggins, the Beast of Bodmin and the resting place of King Arthur’s sword Excalibur in Dozmary Pool combine to make this a very special place. Continue to the north Cornish coast and the mediaeval fishing village of Boscastle with its distinctive harbour. Nearby are the romantic cliff top ruins of Tintagel Castle, birthplace of King Arthur which you will have the chance to explore before travelling south to the seaside University town of Falmouth for the next 2 nights.
Day 4 PENZANCE/ST. IVES/FALMOUTH
Explore the most westerly tip of England on this magnificent day taking in the incredible Minack theatre built into the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful National Trust beach at Porthcurno. You may even see some pirates at Penzance! England’s most westerly point beckons at Lands End before following the dramatic coast, with windswept moors and old stone Celtic communities up to the artistic haven of St. Ives. Returning to Falmouth for the night.
Day 5 GLASTONBURY/LONDON
This morning you say farewell to Cornwall and travel back through the Devon countryside with stops for photos and refreshments before arriving in the famous little town of Glastonbury for lunch. Glastonbury Tor rises high above the town and has mythical connections with King Arthur and Avalon. From here you will travel back eastwards for the final highlight - the famous Neolithic standing stone circle of Stonehenge before returning to London, a city completely removed from the experiences you have enjoyed in the magical counties of Devon and Cornwall.
