Secret Devon and Cornwall
Remote and wild, this tour will take you to places both well-known and off the beaten track with a series of historical, cultural, and present-day treasures - a feast for all the senses
From stunning coastlines to countryside views and castles straight out of storybooks, England’s grand scenery is waiting to be discovered. There are castles, courtyards, lakes and literary links to uncover when you choose one of our small group escorted tours of England. These are designed to showcase some of the most significant parts of the country’s past and reveal the cultural landscape we know today.
To see all this country has to offer, you can select from a choice of small group tours of England. These are tailor-made to take in some of the most spectacular sights and scenery.
You can opt to explore the lesser travelled yet stunningly beautiful rolling landscapes and crumbling castles of Northumberland on our Northumbrian Majesty tour. Here, the region’s Roman, Norman and Viking heritage is evident in the monuments and ruins that are dotted throughout the county, making this a magical tour for history lovers.
Should you long to experience the beauty and wonder of the Lake District, Letters from the Lakeside is a tour that delves into the scenery that has so impacted our literary heritage. Across the Pennines from the Lake District, and with equally awe-inspiring scenery, lies Yorkshire. Picking up on the county’s moniker, In God’s Own Country is an escorted tour of one of England’s most eclectic regions, taking in historic cities, market towns and ancient abbeys.
If you long for a trip beside the seaside, choose our Secret Devon and Cornwall tour. These counties feel Mediterranean at times thanks to their balmy climate and glorious sunshine in the summer months. On these small group tours of this corner of the south west, we take you off the beaten track to discover wild landscapes and dramatic scenery.
For something truly special, there’s The Charm of the Cotswolds. This small group escorted tour incorporates the five of England’s counties that the region covers. It enables you to explore stunning abbeys in the area and stroll around pretty villages filled with their honey-coloured buildings and quaint thatched cottages.
Are you feeling inspired? Whichever of these escorted tours of England you want to try, you’ll find that Jules Verne has every part of the itinerary covered.
