2022 - Looe & The Eden Project
Life slows down in South East Cornwall, but not to the point where you won't find anything to do. From the bustling working port and sandy beaches of Looe to the old-world charm of Polperro there is something for everyone. The Eden Project in Cornwall is home to the largest indoor rainforest in the world. People flock from all over the country to see this spectacular attraction. The huge biomes create tropical and Mediterranean environments and house thousands of unusual plants from all over the world. The Eden Project, an educational charity, connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future.
On the 7-day tour in July an included visit to the charming garden estate of Trelissick with its stunning maritime views and lovely woodland walks rounds off your week in this wonderful part of the world.

Fowey, Polperro & Cornish Coast
Our visits today start at the resort of Fowey, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. With a natural harbour, it is a haven for yachtsmen and over the last few years Fowey has become a popular destination for passing cruise liners. The village of Polperro squeezes down the valley to a small harbour where tiny fisherman's cottages and sail lofts hang off the rocks. Free of traffic (there is a tram for those who have walking difficulties) you can wander through the streets and browse the shops full of handicrafts.
Trelissick Gardens (7 day tour only)
Trelissick is set on its own peninsula, with panoramic views over the Fal estuary. You can explore the meandering paths through the garden, There is a step-free circular walk around the formal gardens and the woodland walks through dappled sunlight and across open parkland offer views down the estuary to the town of Falmouth. Trelissick has its own renowned art gallery with a wide range of work from local Cornish artists.
Last Day - Homeward today with lots of memories and with comfort stops on the way to interchange. You can expect to be back in your local towns mid evening.Back to top
