The tradition of this dramatic and colorful carnival began in the 1600’s and has grown to a massive procession of over one hundred bright floats adorned with 22,000 lightbulbs. A programme of music and dancing makes the event an annual family delight for thousands of people who flock here each year. At the end of the performance there will be a unique ‘squibbing’ firework display. 

The three star standard Best Western Tiverton Hotel is located in the heart of Mid-Devon within two and a half acres of mature gardens. Bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped.


Saturday We travel from Cornwall to Devon with a break to allow for a leisurely lunch before making our way to the Tiverton Hotel. After checking in we make our way to Bridgwater. There will be time for a meal before we take our Grandstand seats for the procession. Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival is the largest and best illuminated procession in the world. It has been held in the town since the late 19th century and the magnificent floats and elaborate costumes offer an experience like no other. You will also get to see the famous squibbing with fireworks. We return to our hotel late this evening.

Sunday After a leisurely breakfast we make our way to Exeter where you will have free time to shop or enjoy the historic side of this attractive city. We return to Cornwall later in the afternoon.
