Following an introductory talk and welcome we are free to discover this secret garden that was lost for decades. Relax in the afternoon in the quintessential Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey and discover its quaint streets lined with fisherman's cottages, pubs, cafes, galleries and shops.


Today, we visit Lanhydrock House (NT), an impressive late Victorian home and gardens. Discover the fascinating contrast between the upstairs and downstairs worlds by exploring the kitchens and servants’ quarters as well as the grand family spaces. Next, we take the short drive to the Bodmin & Wenford Railway for a scenic return heritage train ride.


After breakfast, we make our way to Bodmin Jail, built in 1779 for King George III, the jail was one of the first modern prisons in the UK with individual cells and segregated male and female areas.
