The South West

Explore the mighty harbours around Plymouth, home of much of the British fleet, then sail up to Dartmouth and Salcombe, guarded by fortresses and castles. Go inland and soak up the peace and quiet of the lonely expanses of Dartmoor, broken by the forbidding walls of Dartmoor prison. Visit Buckland Abbey, the home of Sir Francis Drake and stand on the Mayflower Steps where the Pilgrim Fathers departed to the New World.

Soak up the sun on the English Riviera, and then go north to Lorna Doone country and the romantic Valley of the Rocks at Lymouth. Visit the world famous Glastonbury festival and the beautiful cathedral city of Wells, go east to the world heritage Jurassic coast, then finish your journey in Bristol, home to the Mathew, Banksy and the iconic Suspension Bridge. Don’t miss out on the Roman andGeorgian splendours of Bath.

"Come to the South West. Marvel at the awe inspiring cliffs of Lands End and the rugged Cornish coastline, inspiration for painters and writers through the centuries and home to fishermen and smugglers. Find your own hidden cove or walk out through the tide to St Michaels Mount. Visit the Minack Theatre while dolphins play in the bay below."
