One of the proudest regions in England, discover just what makes Cornwall so captivating to those who visit. Enjoy the history, the amazing natural landscapes, and two rail journeys from your base in Lostwithiel.
Meet your group and Tour Manager in your hotel today, the Best Western Fowey Valley, in Lostwithiel. After breakfast on Day 2, walk to the station to join the train to St Ives, via St Erth. On arrival in St Ives, you have some free time, then transfer by coach along this beautiful rocky promontory, enjoying the pretty seascape as it passes by. Arrive at Lands End, the most southerly point of Britain, for some time at leisure. Our last stop on our days exploration is Penzance, one of Cornwall's most beautiful seaside towns.
Take a delightful return railway journey on the Bodmin and Wenford Railway*, then transfer by coach to Lanhydrock House. This beautiful house is the epitome of a stately home, with incredible architecture showing in both the main house and the gatehouse. The bulk of the house was built in the Victorian times, but some parts date back to the 17th century. The interior showcases the luxury of living the aristocratic Victorian life, and we have plenty of time to enjoy the house before visiting Fowey for some free time.

Today, we explore more of the incredible scenery of Cornwall, beginning our day at Bedruthan Steps, overlooking a stunning sandy beach with some beautiful rock formations. After some time to absorb the beauty of the area, we transfer to Tintagel, incredible ruins with links to the legendary King Arthur. Here, you have the option to walk to the famous ruins, where entrance is included. Alternatively, you may like to visit Arthur's Great Hall and view the stunning stained glass windows. We have some free time in Boscastle after Tintagel, then transfer to the Launceston Steam Railway for a delightful return journey to Newmills.
After breakfast this morning, your tour ends, and you are free to depart at leisure.
