DAY 2

A day of gentle roaming by rail as we head west on the Cornish mainline to Penzance for sightseeing and views of St. Michael's Mount, before taking the spectacular branch line journey to the pretty harbour resort of St Ives; this famous resort has it all: cobbled streets full of history, pretty fisherman's cottages, beautiful creations in craft shops to stunning art at the Tate.

DAY 3

Today we board our coach for the short journey to the Eden Project for an unforgettable sensory journey of breathtaking beauty, as you step from steamy tropical rain forest into Mediterranean-type climates of the world. We then head for the North Cornish Coast to visit Padstow, a quaint working fishing port, whose seafood was made famous by Rick Stein. We return to Lanhydrock via the award-winning Trevibban Vineyard, where we enjoy a tour and tasting.

DAY 4

We transfer to Bodmin for a wonderful journey of nostalgia on the Bodmin & Wenford steam railway, a time-capsule of yesteryear train travel. Then continue along the mainline to Liskeard and change trains to trundle along one of the prettiest rural branch lines in Britain, twisting, turning and hugging the riverside to the estuary at Looe where after a break for a little sightseeing on the banjo pier we return by train to Bodmin Parkway.
