Itinerary

Excursions

FULL DAY: This morning to Exeter, one of the oldest cities in England, founded over 2,000 years ago. Today there is plenty to explore from the many museums and magnificent cathedral to the historic winding lanes. This afternoon we return to Exmouth and swap land for water with a circular cruise along the famous Jurassic Coast. Sit back and relax, as well as enjoying a cream tea on board, as we sail along this staggering stretch of coastline, offering unrivalled views of the shoreline and the sea stacks of Ladram Bay.

FULL DAY: Today we head to Bicton Park Botanical Gardens in the picturesque Otter Valley. Spanning 300 years of horticultural history, the gardens are home to many rare and exotic plants. This afternoon we visit Sidmouth, described by John Betjeman as ‘a town caught still in a timeless charm’, with a regency history set beneath the majestic red cliffs of the Jurassic Coast.

FREE DAY: A free day at leisure to enjoy the resort of Exmouth with its charming streets and alleys and its wonderful esplanade.
