We depart Plymouth at 8.30am, making a comfort stop at the picturesque harbour of West Bay before heading onto Exbury Gardens which lies on the edge of the New Forest near Southampton. The gardens belong to a branch of the Rothschild family and were created in the 1920’s. It is a large rhododendron and azalea garden and also has a narrow gauge steam railway running through the gardens (train ride included in tour price).

Sunday

This morning we visit Eltham Palace located within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Eltham is a unique marriage between a medieval and Tudor palace and a 1930s millionaire’s mansion. From the 14th to the 16th century it was an important royal palace, where monarchs often stayed and hunted in the surrounding parks. After centuries of neglect, Eltham was leased to Stephen and Virginia Courtauld in 1933, who built an up-to-the-minute house here that incorporated the great hall. The result was a masterpiece of 20th-century design. We aim to leave London mid afternoon aiming to arrive back into Plymouth early evening.
