Journey Itinerary

Friday - 12/04/2024

Our train travels through beautiful Somerset before passing historic Exeter with spectacular views across the River Exe as we follow the coastline and dash through cuttings of red rock and around the sea wall at Dawlish prior to climbing the Devon banks with views of Dartmoor, then into Cornwall over Brunel’s famous Royal Albert Bridge. You may choose to alight at the county town of Truro for the regular rail service to beautiful Falmouth offering a wide choice of top-quality hotels overlooking the harbour or seafront, alternatively continue to St Erth and board the local train for the short journey through Carbis Bay to St Ives, the dazzling Jewel in Cornwall’s crown and voted Britain’s best holiday destination.  Our final destination is the historic seafaring town of Penzance, offering numerous hotels and guest houses, where we are due to arrive around 18.00.

Saturday - 13/04/2024

The day is yours at leisure to relax and enjoy your chosen resort, or venture further afield with perhaps a day’s sail from Penzance on ‘Scillonian III’ to the beautiful and unspoilt Isles of Scilly, or visit the quaint fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole, or take a walk along the cliff top and coastal paths offering stunning views across unspoilt beaches and coves – Whatever you choose don’t forget to include a sumptuous cream tea or freshly made Cornish Pasty.

Sunday - 14/04/2024

Departing from Penzance late morning we call at St Erth and Truro, and then retrace our outward journey through maritime Plymouth and around the Devon coastline.
