Tour Itinerary
Day 1

Expect only the best as a VIP guest, as we make our way in pure comfort and style aboard our premier league coach to our hotel, The Alverton Manor Hotel - one of Truro's best kept secrets.

Day 2

Day 2 - Master Class Experience at the Philleigh Way Cookery School + St Mawes and Ferry to Falmouth for Trelissick Gardens
This morning we make our way to the Philleigh Way Cookery School, located on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. We sip on tea/coffee as we meet our tutor and enjoy an authentic Cornish pasty making demonstration, discovering the history and culture of the beloved Cornish pasty. Then it’s your turn to craft your very own pasty under the watchful eye of the chef, offering added guidance when it comes to the all important crimping. Whilst our creations are cooking, we are treated to a homemade scone demonstration - and then we can feast upon our freshly baked pasties and classic Cornish cream tea (remember, when in Cornwall it's jam first!)

Once sated, we then make our way to the pretty fishing village of St Mawes where we have some time at leisure to explore; before enjoying a short ferry trip across the Fal River to Falmouth and a boat cruise from Falmouth to Trelissick Gardens. Here we can enjoy the landscaped gardens, exotic borders, orchards, parklands and stunning maritime views, making this a treat for both gardening enthusiasts and those who appreciate the delights of the great outdoors.

Day 3

Day 3 - St Micheals Mount / Land's End / St Ives / Carbis Bay Hotel Afternoon Tea
After breakfast we travel to Marazion. Home of the iconic St Michael's Mount, a tidal island half a mile offshore with a causeway that links it to the mainland at low tide. Here we have free time to for a photo opportunity before we head to Land's End, via a scenic drive. This legendary rocky headland has inspired writers and artists across time with its breathtaking views.

Our journey continues around the coast to St Ives. Here we experience a totally different scene, that also inspired the arts. Bright light, sparkling waters, clear sands and the beauty of this town that is the home of British modern art.

You may have seen the stunning back drop to the 2021 G7 summit at the Carbis Bay Hotel. It looked like the Caribbean with its golden sands, clear water and blue blue sky - and it is here that we will enjoy a delightful afternoon tea. Whilst we can't guarantee the weather, we can promise a truly indulgent moment in one of the world's most beautiful bays.

After tea, we make our way back to our stunning hotel to relax before dinner.

Day 4

Sadly, after breakfast, we have to return home today...but we'll do it in style.
