This wonderful 4-day tour takes you into an area of Britain noted for it's timelessness and variety. These are the counties of the great pre-historic ruin like Stonehenge, of England's great maritime tradition, of picturesque fishing villages and elegant seaside resorts. It's here you see the great apple orchards of Somerset, the patchwork countryside of Devon, the awe-inspiring moorlands and the rugged cliff-top coastlines and farmed surfing sandy beaches. Tradition and culture have remained true to the English spirit here and you feel spirited back into another, less busy age. It's also a land of Celtic legend and of the romantic King Arthur whose own life we'll discover

Day 1 - Nightstop Devon or Somerset Borders

Departing London, we drive through England oldest county, Wiltshire, driving across the amazing Salisbury Plain where you'll see the great prehistoric temple of Stonehenge and a landscape simply littered with ancient burial sites. You'll also see the evidence of Iron Age hill forts, possible sites of where the great Celtic king, Arthur and his Round Table knights took on the Saxon invaders. Next on our programme is the fabulous interior and gardens of 18th century Montacute House. Then, we'll take time to explore some towns and villages of Somerset, around Ilchester, where time seems to have stood still (and where we'll visit a famous cider making farm). This is the area made famous by the author Thomas Hardy and his world is still evident.
Day 2 - Nightstop Devon or Somerset Borders
Today we explore 'The English Riviera' visiting the elegant Devon seaside resorts of Torquay and Paignton where many are surprised to see we have palm trees in Britain! There will be time to walk along the magnificent promenade and see why this lovely stretch of coastline is so popular with English and continental visitors. You'll also see an unexpected reminder of D-Day recovered from the sea and hear a sad tale. Also, on today's itinerary, the ancient maritime city of Exeter with its wonderful collection of historic ships, and the 'Mayflower' city of Plymouth.

You'll cross the beautiful and awesome landscape of the Dartmoor National Park, visiting Castle Drogo en route to the north Cornwall coast. Here, you'll visit Tintagel castle, the reputed birthplace of King Arthur. The castle sits on top of the wild cliffs accessible only by walking. Later, we'll visit a selection of the quaint fishing villages of the north Cornwall and Devon coasts. This is a day where photographers need to ensure a plentiful supply of film! Finally, our day in Cornwall would not be complete if we didn't stop for a famed Cornish 'pastie' somewhere on route, perhaps in a thatched-roofed country pub?
