Monday - The Eden Project is a world-renowned visitor’s attraction known for its largest indoor rain forest. The Dutch designer Tim Smit, created what is now an iconic famous attraction in the heart of Cornwall, it is instantly recognisable by its covered Biomes, housing the largest rainforest in captivity with its stunning thundering waterfalls and tree top walkways. In the afternoon, we travel to the beautiful fishing village of Fowey. With its stunning harbour for leisure crafts and yachts and more recently a port for some enormous cruise liners too.
Tuesday – The Lost Gardens of Heligan were rediscovered back in 1990 with over 200 acres, a garden for all seasons it has everything from Victorian Productive Gardens to The Jungle, with bamboo tunnels. This afternoon we visit Mevagissey, since 1745 the area has been used as a fishing port, with beautiful traditional cob houses on the quayside.

Thursday- We will visit The Gardens of Trebah, which were mentioned in The Domesday Book (1085). This subtropical paradise has been nurtured for over 1000 years. Created in a beautiful valley, you can walk under canopies bursting into spring bloom, making beautiful tunnels of colour taking you to the beach on the River Helford. In the afternoon, we travel onto Falmouth. The striking deep-water harbour through the years the port has been known as the first and last, as ships crossing the Atlantic would seek shelter here during bad weather, for repairs or fuel. If time permits we will continue to Truro, with its stunning Lemon Quay and double spired cathedral.
