Best of Cornwall

(8 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Hampshire, Penzance, St. Mawes, London

This luxurious private tour includes three unique, varied areas of England, focusing on the best of the Cornish coast combined with time at a luxurious country house hotel on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire and private touring in London, one of the world's greatest cities.

Begin with an overnight stay in Hampshire at one of England's most acclaimed luxury retreats. While there, enjoy grand British architecture, fine dining, and the resort's world-class spa.

Continue to Cornwall, a southwestern region of dramatic coastline, magnificent gardens and mild subtropical climate that has been inhabited since Neolithic times. En route, stop for lunch in the countryside and tour Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The remote moorland is known for its Celtic crosses, ancient stone circles and historic pubs.

Stay two nights in Penzance and enjoy exploring the area's picturesque coastal villages, beautiful beaches and great museums, art galleries and potteries such as the Tate Gallery St. Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden and the historic Leach Pottery Studio. Alternatively, visit World War II sites or St. Michael's Mount, a castle and cathedral on a tiny island.

Continue to St. Mawes, one of Cornwall's most picturesque villages, and stay two nights at the seaside Hotel Tresanton. En route, visit the Lizard Peninsula and see untouched coastline of pristine beaches and dramatic cliffs, unique flora and fauna, and historic architecture. Enjoy private touring of some of Cornwall's most magnificent castles, gardens and heritage homes, including St. Mawes Castle, The Eden Project and Lanhydrock. Alternatively, view the collection of rare boats at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth or visit literary sites such as the scenic fishing village that famously inspired the setting of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, or the ruins of a clifftop castle associated with Arthurian legends. One day, if desired, take an excursion to Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The remote moorland is known for its Celtic crosses, ancient stone circles and historic pubs.

Cornwall is an exceptional foodie destination and we arrange for travelers to enjoy the best of the region's culinary touring, including gourmet seafood in celebrated restaurants, the best casual fish & chips on the beach and afternoon tea. If desired, take a Cornish cooking class and learn to make local specialties like Cornish rarebit and Cornish pasties.

Other activities we can arrange include privately guided hiking, fishing, kayaking, sailing, diving trips to shipwrecks and private yacht charters; visits to wildlife sanctuaries, art galleries, pottery studios and World War II sites.

En route back to London, stop for lunch at a historic country estate or atmospheric rural pub. If desired, visit Stonehenge, one of England's most enduring icons. Upon arrival in London, transfer to Claridge's, an incomparable luxury hotel in the exclusive Mayfair neighborhood. A half-day of private touring will be customized to your interests. First-time visitors may wish to visit famous landmarks such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the British Museum, Covent Garden and Buckingham Palace. Other options include the Victoria & Albert Museum, Sir John Soane's Museum, the Wallace Collection, Imperial War Museum and the Tate museums as well as Greenwich, local markets, gardens, sophisticated neighborhoods and other highlights. Artisans of Leisure can arrange reservations for dining and afternoon tea, book tickets to performances and provide recommendations for the best shopping in London.
