Eden Project Coach Trip Itinerary

Day One :

Coach travel to Cornwall

Leaving the local area in the early morning, we'll journey to Torquay and our weekend hotel. After check-in, you'll have time to relax until dinner is served.


Day Two :

Included Heligan garden tour

Today we'll discover the "Lost Gardens of Heligan". During the scenic 90-minute drive from your hotel, your Tour Manager will explain the fascinating story of the manor and its historic gardens, and once there you'll have plenty of time to explore.

See 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 :

Included Eden Project day trip

Today's highlight is our visit to the climate-controlled sanctuary of the Eden Project. 

Leaving the hotel, we'll cross Dartmoor National Park and Bodmin Moor on a scenic drive as we make our way to the Project itself. Here you'll find ecosystems far removed from the typical UK countryside - from the mighty rainforests and banana trees of the Humid Tropics biome to the African aloes, olives and citrus of the Warm Temperate biome - not to mention the constantly evolving array of plants that blanket the surrounding landscape.

Day Four :

Coach trip to Wells and home

We take our leave of Torquay this morning, and head to the smallest city in England - Wells. With its ancient cathedral, moated Bishop's Palace and what is said to be the oldest complete medieval street in Europe, Wells is a hidden gem nestled in the Mendip Hills.

After the chance for lunch we'll continue home, arriving back in the local area by mid-to-late evening.

Further Information

Coach travel on Days Two and Three

The journeys from the hotel to Heligan on Day Two and the Eden Project on Day Three will take some time, passing through the lovely Cornish scenery en route.

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 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. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (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 7 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
