Foodie delights and other treats on offer in Cornwall
Join Diamond holidays to uncover some of Cornwall's highlights, including the only city in the county, the most southerly point of the British mainland and the home of English tea, where you can enjoy an exclusive private garden tour followed by tea and biscuits.
Your holiday begins in the fishing village of Padstow, reached via a dramatic coastal road. A charming place to explore, you'll want to browse the narrow streets or walk out to the headland to take in the magnificent view.
The second day is in Falmouth and Lizard Point. At the entrance to the third largest natural harbour in the world, Falmouth is an attractive town full of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, many on the picturesque waterfront. There is also the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle to see.
From here, you'll travel along the coast to Lizard Point, the most southerly point in Britain, famed for the local serpentine stone, a unique and colourful green-veined rock.

St Ives is arguably the most frequented Cornish resort and is as popular with visitors as with artists. Life is centred on the harbour, but there are also four beaches while the town's cobbled streets are lined with interesting shops and cafes. There's also the St Ives Museum and the Tate Gallery.
Overlooked by the beautiful St Michael's Mount, the historic market town of Penzance is arranged around Chapel Street, which counts among its most interesting features the Egyptian House, the Union Hotel and Branwell House. On the seafront is a promenade that's perfect for a stroll, or take a dip in the open-air seawater swimming pool.
The last day is spent at Tregothnan Estate, where you'll enjoy a guided tour of the largest private garden and arboretum in Cornwall. A range of teas and herbal infusions are grown here, which you can sample with biscuits in the 19th century summer house.
