Morwellham Quay & Buckland Abbey
We step back in time this morning as we visit the award-winning Morwellham Quay, part of a World Heritage Site. Here, we visit the only open copper mine in the UK, accessible to visitors by a riverside railway. Next, we head to pretty Tavistock for lunch, before we continue on to Buckland Abbey. Part-house, part-museum, it is crammed with treasures and surrounded by meadows with magnificent views of the Tavy Valley.
Plymouth Boat Trips, Mayflower Museum & Plymouth Gin Black Friars Distillery
We head to Plymouth this morning, from where we enjoy a harbour cruise across the Plymouth Sound. Find your sea-legs as we pass Plymouth Hoe and Drake's Island, heading to the Royal Naval Dockyard. Here, we pay a visit to the Mayflower Museum and explore the story of the voyage of the Pilgrims and their journey aboard the Mayflower to the New World.
In the afternoon, we enjoy a guided tour and tasting at the historic Plymouth Gin Distillery, the oldest working gin distillery in England. Housed in the Black Friar's building, it dates back to the early 1400s, its location near the docks meant that for almost two hundred years, no Royal Navy ship left port without it. And of course, no tour is complete without a little tipple after-enjoy!
South Devon Steam Railway
Today, we enjoy a return journey on the South Devon Railway from Buckfastleigh to Totnes, along the stunning River Dart valley. In the afternoon, we have a scenic drive across spectacular Dartmoor.
We depart after breakfast and make our way back home.
