  • Day 1 LONDON – WELLS – DARTMOOR NATIONAL PARK

    From London, we’ll set off on our adventure. Our first stop is the tiny market city of Wells, known for its Gothic cathedral and peaceful Vicars’ Close.

  • Day 2 DARTMOOR NATIONAL PARK – PORT ISAAC – PADSTOW – FALMOUTH

    Today we’ll leave Dartmoor for Cornwall’s northern coast – starting with a stroll around Port Isaac, the fishing village made famous by the Doc Martin television series. Next, we’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch at The Seafood Restaurant – Rick Stein’s flagship restaurant in Padstow. Here, you can take your pick from a menu of fresh-off-the-boat Cornish seafood and international favourites. Afterwards, it's time to take it easy as we travel further west to Falmouth. (B,L)

Here, we’ll explore the village and the medieval castle and gardens, which are brimming with treasures and stories from the past. Next, we’ll visit St Ives, one of England’s prettiest towns, before returning to Falmouth. (B,D)
