Truro & Charlestown
Explore some of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Truro. Spend time walking the quaint streets or browse the wonderful shops and cafes. There's something for everyone in this 800-year old city. Charlestown, near St Austell, is our destination for the afternoon. A popular coastal filming location with a huge collection of ships, this picturesque town boasts a Grade II listed harbour, complete with tall ships - simply stunning!
Today, we enjoy the many delights of Falmouth. Why not pay a visit to Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle, which stands nobly atop the entrance to Falmouth's natural harbour? (Entrance fee not included.) Falmouth is also the home to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall; and for those feeling the need to stretch their legs there's the 111 stone steps of Jacobs ladder to climb. For a spot of retail therapy there's Trago Mills, the South West's original discount retailer, or you may wish to simply enjoy the hotel's facilities.
St Ives & Penzance
A leisurely day beckons, as we make our way to art-lovers' favourite, St Ives. This beautiful town, set in a stunning bay welcomes you with a plentiful array of quaint independent shops and art galleries. Spend the morning exploring the winding cobbled streets, galleries, restaurants, the St Ives Museum or the famous Tate St Ives. After lunch, we travel to Penzance for the afternoon. Visit Morrab Gardens or Tanglewood Wild Garden, showcasing a range of subtropical and Mediterranean plants that thrive in the balmy Cornish weather. Alternatively, visit the Egyptian House, Penlee House Museum or wander down Chapel Street, with its brightly coloured church restaurants, galleries and boutiques leading you to the quayside.
We travel through the Cornish countryside as we head for home.
