Group Travel Tour Operator and DMC to Cornwall
Newquay and Classic Cornwall
In this tour we combine the traditional destinations of Land’s End, St Ives and Newquay with visits to the Atlantic coast destinations of Padstow, Tintagel Castle and Boscastle. The stunning Atlantic coast has recently provided the back drop to feature film ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ and on this tour you can marvel at the beautiful scenery including rugged cliffs and picturesque fishing ports.

Travel to your hotel in Cornwall
If time permits, why not stop off on the journey, perhaps at Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor. The Greatdays team can offer suggestions.
Land’s End and St Ives
This morning we take a leisurely journey south west to Land’s End. Take a stroll along the family-friendly paths above cliffs carved out by the Atlantic Ocean, and visit the ‘End to End’ exhibition that tells the stories of some of those who made the 838 mile journey to or from John o’Groats. We then travel to St Ives, one of Cornwall’s most popular seaside destinations. There’s free time to lose yourself in the maze of narrow, cobbled streets and alleyways, and spend time down by the harbour beach. Don’t miss the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden where work by the country’s leading 20th century artists is exhibited in tranquil gardens.
Free day in Newquay
Time to really relax with a free day in Newquay. This laid-back resort offers a mix of beautiful beaches, cliff-top views and seafront shops.
Padstow, Tintagel Castle and Boscastle
Today we travel up the Atlantic coast to the pretty fishing town of Padstow. The colourful working harbour sits among pastel washed medieval houses. We continue along the coast where you may wish to call into Port Issac, seen in recently released feature film ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ (coach drop off only). Next we reach Tintagel Castle, a place inextricably linked with the legend of King Arthur. Our final stop is the village of Boscastle, a picturesque natural harbour and village, mostly owned by the National Trust. The Elizabethan quay sits in an impressive amphitheatre of steep cliffs and is home to quaint stone-built cottages, shops and tea-rooms.
After an enjoyable breakfast check out of the hotel and return home.
