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.

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS
Eden Project & Charlestown

Visit the Eden Project, - once a barren landscape - a former clay mine with no soil or plants. It has been transformed  into a beautiful global garden, which sets the stage for an extraordinary day out where you'll rediscover the natural world as you've never experienced it before. 
Explore massive covered Biomes to trek through the world's largest indoor rainforest and immerse yourself in the calm fragrance of the Mediterranean Biome. Enjoy extensive Outdoor Gardens, contemporary artworks, performance and storytelling. Discover places to rest, play and eat, and pick up inspiring ideas to take home on how to care for the planet that cares for you.  Spend the whole day or choose to go onto Charlestown - much to see and do with its Shipwreck Treasure Museum located above the Historic Port of Charlestown, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Shipwreck Museum (admission not included approx. £12) shows a unique insight into the history of Charlestown with an opportunity to venture through underground tunnels that were once used to load clay onto ships moored in the harbour. You will also be able to view the largest private collection of shipwreck artefacts in Europe with nearly 8,000 artefacts from over 150 shipwrecks. You'll also find shops, restaurants and two beautiful beaches waiting to be discovered.

Fowey, Polperro & Cornish Coast
Start the day in 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. You can wander through the narrow streets and browse the shops full of handicrafts. (The main parking area is approximately 1/2 mile from the harbour - a gentle slope on the way down but of course, uphill on the way back up).

OPTIONAL EXCURSION (6 day tour only)
Plymouth - Britain's Ocean City  
Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions. Come rain or shine you'll find something here among the city streets and marine environment beyond.  There are well-known landmarks, historical sites and natural assets to explore across Plymouth's many unique areas and districts. Wander the Barbican's quaint cobbled quayside following in the Pilgrim Father's footsteps or visit the National Marine Aquarium with its deepwater fish tanks (entrance not included - approx. £25 pp peak times in 2022).  

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.
