Itinerary
Day 1:

Leaving central London, you travel through Wessex, one of England’s ancient kingdoms.

You pass through this millennia-old setting on the way to the historic city of Winchester. The former capital of Anglo-Saxon England is synonymous with Alfred the Great and boasts a magnificent cathedral and the Norman Great Hall. You'll have time to grab lunch and explore the fascinating old town.

From this bustling city, you head to a quieter but equally profound place: the standing stone circles of Stonehenge. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Stonehenge site has been skilfully preserved.

At the award-winning visitor centre, you can view the exhibition of hundreds of prehistoric items from the Stonehenge collection. By joining the land train shuttle, you make your way to the world-famous stone circles.

You then travel to Exeter, an important fortified settlement in Roman times and your base for two nights.

Day 2:
After breakfast (included), your guide will take you to Dartmoor, a place of myths and legends that has inspired some of the world’s most famous mystery writers, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. You'll have enough free time to have lunch (at own expense).

Then visit the hamlet of Postbridge, best known for its ancient clapper bridge. Continue to Tavistock, the lovely hometown of Sir Francis Drake, before heading back to Exeter in the early afternoon to explore the town on your own and have dinner (at own expense). Visit the amazing Norman Cathedral, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the University of Exeter.

Day 3:
Day 3 is Cornwall day! After breakfast (included), leave Devon behind and make your way to Cornwall, one of England’s most picturesque regions, full of rocky cliffs, white sandy beaches, mystic moors and lovely woodlands. Visit the civil parish of Launceston, Cornwall's ancient capital, and the nearby Bodmin moor, where your guide will tell you about its mysterious legends.

Throughout the day, see attractions like Golitha Falls, the small St Neats church and Tintagel Castle, the birthplace of the legendary King Arthur, and have enough free time for lunch (at own expense).

End your day in Falmouth, your home base for the next two nights. Your guide will recommend you the best local restaurants, where you can enjoy your dinner (at own expense).

Day 4:
After breakfast (included), visit the island of St Michaels Mount and the Minack Theatre, which is built dramatically into the cliffs. See the beautiful beaches of Porthcurno and possibly even a pirate of Penzance. You'll have enough free time to grab lunch (at own expense).

Move on to the dramatic coast of Land's End and watch the surfers in St Ives before returning to Falmouth for the evening, where you have dinner (at own expense).

Day 5:
After breakfast (included), spend your last day at the exploring Glastonbury and discover its ancient connections to King Arthur.

You'll have lunch there (at own expense), and return to London in the evening.

Correct, no toilet on the bus, but frequent stops. One of our passengers asked if he could stop and he was able to, obviously that would be a bit more problematic on the motorway!
