Cornwall Short Break
Day 1 Falmouth
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Falmouth. We aim for you to arrive at the hotel between 4pm and 5pm, where tea and coffee will be served before free time to relax.
Day 2 Cornwall Tour
Today we embark on a tour of some of Cornwall’s most stunning places and best-loved towns. Our first stop is Pendennis Castle, Henry VIII’s coastal stronghold. Within the lofty battlements, exhibitions show its importance in defending Cornwall some 450 years ago, through to its last military role as a secret base during World War II. We continue to Marazion to take in the view across to St Michael’s Mount, a rocky tidal island crowned by a magnificent medieval castle. And then on to St Ives, one of the most popular holiday destinations in Cornwall thanks to its golden beaches and subtropical gardens. You’ll enjoy some free time to explore here.
Day 3 Falmouth
Today you’re free to relax and enjoy our hotel’s facilities, or explore the seaside town of Falmouth. Take a walk along shingled Castle Beach or sandy Maenporth and Durgan beaches; visit the Falmouth Art Gallery or the National Maritime Museum; or enjoy coffee and shopping on the historic High Street. You could also choose to take the small ferry across the river to St Mawes, with its pretty harbour, castle and coastal walking paths.
Day 4 Lost Gardens of Heligan - Truro
After nearly a century of neglect and the devastation caused by the hurricane of 1990, the Lost Gardens of Heligan have been brought back to life by a team of dedicated workers, inspired by the tales of people who worked and wandered the gardens prior to World War I. Enjoy a morning exploring the beautiful gardens which have repeatedly won international recognition at the prestigious European Garden Awards. We then enjoy a short visit to Mevagissey. The narrow streets of this attractive town are full of gift shops, galleries, a small selection of museums and cafés, plus seafood restaurants serving the freshest of fish caught by local fishermen this morning. Our final stop of the day is Truro. Whilst here you may choose to visit Truro Cathedral, view the Georgian townhouses along Walsingham Place, stroll in the beautiful Waterfall Gardens, or wander amongst the shops and boutiques in Pydar Mews. Please note: To access the rope bridge and jungle in the Lost Gardens of Heligan there are some steep hills. The rest of the gardens are accessible.
Day 5 Falmouth
Today we bid farewell to Falmouth. You’ll be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
