Coastal drive to Exmouth + Jurassic coast cruise & cream tea (on board)

We’ll drive along the coast to Exmouth. Exmouth is one of the oldest and most picturesque seaside towns in Devon and a joy to visit at any time of the year. This relatively flat, vibrant town offers plenty of walking, a buzzing harbour as well as local shops and restaurants. The town is the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and has two miles of sandy beach for you to enjoy. There’s no better way to see England’s only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast, than from the water. This circular cruise departs from Exmouth Marina and sails along the oldest section of the Site, known as the Triassic Era. Sit back and relax as you sail through time with the most stunning views of this 185-million-year-old geological portrait. This cruise is the perfect way for friends or groups to see this World Heritage Site from its best perspective, and you’ll be served cream tea on board! 

Totnes & Dartmouth

Totnes
is a charming Devon town with a bustling main street and a regular market situated in the beautiful Dart Valley.  the town is surrounded by woodlands, grassy fields and riverside walks. It is built on a hill rising up from the Dart. The old warehouses on the wharf have been restored preserving the character of the place.

Dartmouth You have to go a long way to find a town as pretty as Dartmouth. Overlooking one of the finest natural harbours in the UK, Dartmouth has a strong maritime heritage and is packed with narrow lanes, stairways and corridors, Medieval and Elizabethan streets. The town has fine restaurants, as well as arts, antiques and craft shops just about everywhere.
