If you are visiting Cornwall, you will soon discover that there are many things to see and do. Relax and allow us to take you to some of the most beautiful and exciting places to visit during your stay in Cornwall. You will soon discover why we are the number one choice for day trips as you embark on a fascinating and leisurely tour. We have a programme which runs from Easter to October which will be published on our website early in the season. During the winter, we run some shopping and theatre trips as well as some great mystery tours for local people which often include a lunch. We pick up at many hotels and holiday camps around Newquay and many hotels can arrange your booking for you, so ask at the reception.
In the meantime, these are a few samples of places that we visit…
The Eden Project
The Eden Project is a truly remarkable attraction hosting the world’s largest indoor rainforest complete with an indoor waterfall all within two gigantic biodomes. Hailed as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ you will soon discover why as you view trees, plants and wildlife from around the world.
Known as the restoration project of the decade, Heligan will impress you with plants and gardens from the Victorian period. No trip to Cornwall is complete without visiting Heligan.
St Ives and St Michaels Mount
An impressive trip to this artist paradise with its scenic views, long beaches, quaint streets and a unique harbour with a short viewing of the spectacular St Michaels Mount on the way.
Penzance and Lands End
A visit to the south-western end of the British Isles (or the beginning of them as the Cornish folk would say). Enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic with a short visit to Penzance, the breeding ground of pirates of old.
Looe and Polperro
A visit to two of the most attractive south coast harbour fishing villages. Looe has a seven-arched bridge over the river and ancient Polperro has to be experienced.
Falmouth and Truro
A popular day full day tour with an optional boat trip up the spectacular Fal river. Included is a visit to Truro, the capital of Cornwall with one of the most modern Cathedrals in the country.
St Roseland and St Mawes
No trip to Cornwall is complete without our popular trip to the secrets of this peninsular. It is a stunningly beautiful tour renowned by the locals for its breath-taking scenery, and takes in St Just in Roseland Church, arguably the prettiest church in England.
Murder Mystery Tour
Described as an evening of suspense, this evening excursion begins by taking you by coach from Newquay to Bodmin where you will board a steam train on the Bodmin Railway to experience a murder mystery drama. The evening includes a pasty and salad meal and is great fun for all the family!
Isles of Scilly
Try something different with a visit to the breathtaking Isles of Scilly which runs every Thursday during the peak season. Probably the most cost-effective way of reaching the islands, we take you by coach travel to Penzance where you will embark upon the Scillonian ship which passes Mousehole and Lands End on its way to St Mary’s. You enjoy the day on the islands, reaching back to Newquay about 8.30pm
