Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Cornwall Coast To Coast Eden

Resort - Newquay

Overview

Newquay is Cornwall's premier holiday resort boasting some of the finest coastline and beaches in Europe. Although well known as Britain's surfing capital, there are many other activities and the surrounding countryside has an endless wealth of fascinating places to visit. The town is an ancient one, dating from the fifteenth century when a new quay was constructed. The heart of the town is the old harbour but it spreads along the cliff tops which stand behind the eleven magnificent sandy beaches. Newquay offers wonderful cliff and beach walks, a picturesque harbour to explore and the variety of activities one associates with such a major resort, including swimming pools, golf, putting, squash, tennis, bowls, boating, shark fishing and horse riding. There are also the atmospheric smugglers' pubs which are a living reminder of the more colourful side of Cornwall's history!

Day 2 - Eden Project

  • Home to a vast global garden, The Eden Project (entry included in tour cost) nestles in a crater overlooking St. Austell Bay.
  • Rainforest and Mediterranean gardens are grown in carefully controlled environments called biomes.
  • Outside, local plants, lavender fields and a small tea plantation are among the many styles of cultivation to discover.

Day 3 - Looe & Polperro

  • Straddling the Looe River, this archetypal Cornish harbour town changes dramatically as the tides wax and wane.
  • The old Guildhall is the oldest building in the town, circa 1500, and houses the local museum (entry fees may apply).
  • Jutting out to sea is the banjo pier, so called for its shape, which was unique at the time of its construction.
  • The busy little harbour of Polperro was once a hive of smuggling, well organised to the point of having its own bank!
  • Local artefacts and the works of local artists are displayed at the Harbour Heritage Museum (entry fee may apply).
  • There are still a dozen or so fishing boats landing cod, monkfish, scallops, crabs and flat fish at Polperro.
