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.

Mount Edgcumbe House & Plymouth Boat Cruise
Step aboard the Mount Edgcumbe cruise and set sail across Plymouth Sound, taking in stunning coastline views and learn about its history as you journey to the Royal Naval Dockyard, where mighty warships and submarines await.  Stop off at Cremyll Quay in Cornwall, to visit the beautiful village of Cremyll and enjoy Mount Edgcumbe House & Country Park, the former home of the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe. Decorated in a classical style and home to some of the treasures collected by the family over the centuries, the house is a haven of calm for visitors to explore the past.
The House was built between 1547 and 1550 to a revolutionary design for that period, built to look outwards for the views rather than be inward facing. Local Staddon Grit with its distinctive red colour was used for the walls whilst carved granite was used for the facings. The stylish ogival (curved to a point) leaded windows used throughout give the House a very distinctive look.
Mount Edgcumbe is home to many notable works of art by famous artists such as Sir Joshua Reynolds, Willem van de Velde and Gerard Edema. The property has been the inspiration for many stunning paintings. Cruise & entrance to the house included. Please note: this excursion is not suitable for wheelchair users or any persons with mobility issues

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.
