Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning, we journey to Torquay and our weekend hotel. After check-in, the afternoon is free for you to enjoy until dinner is served.

Day Two

After breakfast, we'll journey to the "Lost Gardens" of Heligan. Explore the exotic fruit houses, the Italian Garden and grotto, the 30-acre 'Lost Valley' and the subtropical 'Jungle' garden of this constantly evolving project before we return to Torquay in time for dinner.

Day Three

Today's highlight is our visit to the climate-controlled sanctuary of the Eden Project. After crossing Dartmoor National Park, we'll stop at Okehampton before continuing over Bodmin Moor to the Project.

Within its majestic 'Humid Tropics' and 'Warm Temperate' biomes you'll find recreations of ecosystems unlike anything you might encounter in the UK - from mighty rainforests to African savannah.

Day Four

We take our leave of Torbay this morning and head to Street, home to Clarks Village - the UK's foremost outlet shopping centre. After the chance for lunch we'll continue home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Further Information

Eden in Spring

Eden in springtime is a riot of colour. Over half a million bulbs provide a spectacular start to the season. A range of beautiful displays has been planned, which combine early- and late-flowering daffodils and scented narcissi, crocus, muscari, hyacinth, cyclamen, fritillaria, amaryllis, anemone and iris.

Eden in Summer

Eden's huge collection of 140,000 plants means that there's something new and exciting every few steps. With its wild flowers and lavenders, and its myriad fruit and vegetable crops, Eden offers the most varied horticultural experience on the planet. And in the summertime it's at its best.

Eden in Autumn

Autumn is Canopy Season! Discover the fascinating and hidden world of the treetops from mid September to the end of October. Canopy Season is part of Eden's four-year programme exploring and discovering the forest canopies of the world, home to 40 per cent of the world's species.

Changes to your itinerary

Occasionally it may be necessary to switch Days Two and Three around, visiting the Eden Project on Day Two.

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible.

(Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
