Full description

Discover the landscapes and history of the wild Southwest of England on this 5-day minicoach tour. Combining the best of Devon and Cornwall, including the Jurassic Coast, Dartmoor, Lands End, Tintagel Castle, 2 nights in the Roman city of Exeter, and 2 nights in the harbor town of Falmouth, this tour offers a unique view of a beautiful part of Britain.

Day 1

Depart London and travel through the old kingdom of Wessex to the historic city of Winchester. The former capital of Anglo-Saxon England boasts a magnificent cathedral and the Norman Great Hall. From this bustling city, head to a quieter but equally profound place, the standing stone circle of Stonehenge. Having explored this mystical place, your tour will continue to Exeter, the Romans most southwesterly fortified settlement and your base for 2 nights.

Day 2

Your morning is spent exploring the magnificent wilderness of Dartmoor, the ancient "Clapper Bridge" at Postbridge, and the historic market town of Tavistock, home to Francis Drake. Return to Exeter in the early afternoon to explore the Roman town, with its underground passages, ancient walls, Royal Albert Memorial Museum and famous 12th-Century Norman Cathedral.

Day 3

Head west to the North Cornish coast and the Elizabethan fishing village of Boscastle. Indulge in a cream tea, take a stroll out to the dramatic headland or learn a spell or two in the Museum of Witchcraft.

Travel to the village of Tintagel and the ruins of its headland Castle, whose romantic cliff-top setting is purportedly the birthplace of King Arthur. After lunch, the tour heads to Port Isaac where you can get your Doc Martin fix and fall in love with this picturesque fishing village, before heading south to the bustling port town of Falmouth for the next two nights.

Day 4

Explore the most westerly tip of England on this magnificent day, taking in St. Michael’s Mount, the incredible Minack Theater, built into the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful National Trust beach at Porthcurno. Look out for pirates at Penzance! England’s most westerly point beckons at Lands End before following the dramatic coast, with windswept moors and old stone Celtic communities, up to the artistic haven of St. Ives. Return to Falmouth for the night.

Day 5

This morning you say farewell to Cornwall and travel back through the Devon countryside with stops for photos and refreshments before arriving in the famous little town of Glastonbury for lunch. Glastonbury Tor rises high above the town and has mythical connections with King Arthur and Avalon. From here you will return back eastwards to London, a city completely removed from the experiences you have enjoyed in the magical counties of Devon and Cornwall. Staying in a range of locally owned, friendly B&B's and guesthouses, you will enjoy en suite facilities, and tranquility in scenic locations in the lovely southwest of England.

Brilliant trip. Carefully planned to maximise highlights, with extra detail along the way on spots well off the tourist track. Great driver, who was a wealth of knowledge, had an excellent sense of humour and took time together to know everybody in the group. This was excellent value and thoroughly enjoyable.

This was my first trip with Rabbie's Tours and I was extremely pleased with the entire experience. The itinerary was jam packed but the pacing was good - generally we had just enough time at each stop. The mini bus was comfortable and the overnight lodgings were pleasant and within walking distance of a variety of restaurants. There were 12 of us on the tour so we had the opportunity to get to know people from around the world. Our guide, Samuel, was personable and very knowledgeable of the region and its history. I found all of the sites to be senior citizen friendly with the possible exception of Tintagel. The climb to the top is strenuous if you aren't in good shape!

We were very fortunate to have an excellent guide, great weather and in every aspect the trip exceeded our expectations. The places we visited involved a lot of travel in a short time and one we would never have been able to cover in a car in that time. I would highly recommend this company and this trip.
