DAY 4, Monday - Stonehenge, Devon Coast, Travel to Exeter
After breakfast, check out of your hotel and transfer to meet your driver/guide to begin your guided tour. Depart London and travel out through the old kingdom of Wessex to the most famous Neolithic standing stone circle of Stonehenge. Having explored this mystical place, your tour will continue to the dramatic south Devon Coast, enjoying panoramic views over white sandy beaches and the natural rock arch of Durdle Door. Spend an afternoon here to explore some of the coast before arriving at the historic city of Exeter, Rome’s most south westerly fortified settlement
DAY 5, Tuesday - Dartmoor National Park
Your morning is spent exploring the magnificent wilderness of Dartmoor, the ancient "Clapper Bridge" at Postbridge and the historic market town of Tavistock, home to Francis Drake. Return to Exeter in the early afternoon to explore this Roman town, with its underground passages, ancient walls, Royal Albert Memorial museum and famous 12th century Norman Cathedral
DAY 6, Wednesday - Cornwall, Arthurian legend country
Travel west into the heart of Arthurian legend country and the Celtic kingdom of Cornwall. Tour the ancient capital of Cornwall, Launceston, with its 12th century Norman keep perched overlooking Bodmin moor. Explore Bodmin moor itself, with the wild ponies wandering amongst the pre-historic stones called the Hurlers and the Cheesewring. Legends of piskies and spriggins abound and the resting place of King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, in Dozmary pool, all combine with mythical tales of the Beast of Bodmin to make this a very special place. View the Golitha falls and St. Neot’s stunning crusader church to add further variety to your day. Continue to the west coast and view the romantic Tintagel Castle, birthplace of King Arthur, before travelling south to the seaside University town of Falmouth
DAY 7, Thursday - Coast of Cornwall
Explore the most westerly tip of England, taking in St. Michael’s mount, the stunning cliff top village of Mousehole, the incredible Minack theatre built into the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful National Trust beach at Porthcurno. You may even see some pirates at Penzance! England’s most westerly point beckons at Lands End before following the dramatic coast, with windswept moors and old stone Celtic communities up to the artistic haven of St. Ives. Return to Falmouth for the night
DAY 8, Friday - Travel to London
Before departing Cornwall, you get the opportunity to view the world renowned Eden Project Gardens, before we head back eastwards to London, a city completely removed from the remote country experiences you would have enjoyed in the magical ancient Kingdom of King Arthur, King of Wessex. Return to London in the evening
