Itinerary

Thursday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to Bristol where we have free time to enjoy the maritime city and its wonderful culture.  Later we make our way to the outskirts of the city and our hotel.

Friday After breakfast we travel to Highgrove House. HRH The Prince of Wales has spent 35 years transforming the grounds of Highgrove into what have been acknowledged as some of the most inspired and innovative gardens in the United Kingdom. We enjoy a two hour private guided tour which will take us on a fascinating walk of around 2 miles. Whilst here we also enjoy a Highgrove cream tea. Later we visit the unique ‘royal’ town of Tetbury, this ‘architectural gem’ is known for its associations with royalty but is also historically important in its own right.

Saturday After breakfast we make our way to the lovely city of Wells and visit the Bishops Palace which has sat in the heart of this lovely city for over eight hundred years surrounded by fourteen acres of stunning, tranquil gardens. There is time for lunch in Wells before making our way back to Cornwall.
