RRAF CORNWALL TOUR

25-27 April 2022

Organised by the same team as the very successful tours in Brittany, the Two Moors, the Loire and Normandy.

The tour will be based at the four star Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth, which has a rating of 8.6 on Booking.com.  This well-appointed hotel has en suite rooms on two levels, plentiful secure parking, free wifi and a leisure club with an indoor pool.  The price  includes dinner, bed and breakfast for three nights, wine and coffee with dinner each night and a welcome reception on the first evening.  The hotel is located on the edge of the historic mining town of Redruth and is easily accessible from the A30 – a journey of about 90 minutes from Exeter.  The tour price includes all entry fees, tea/coffee stops and one lunch.

April is a great time to visit Cornwall – the roads aren’t busy, the weather should be pleasant and the countryside will be looking at its best.  We will visit the beautiful and varied coastline of the south coast and the north coast and villages and valleys in between.  You may well have visited Cornwall many times but we guarantee that you will go to places where you haven’t been before!

The first day of the tour will cover the south west compass quadrant – travelling close to the most southerly and the most westerly points in England – the Lizard and Land’s End.  We will travel the Atlantic Coast road between Land’s End and St Ives, described as one of the most picturesque routes in Britain. 

On the second day we will head eastwards, through China Clay country and up to the north coast, where we will visit the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre and afterwards there will be the opportunity to take part in a Regularity Stage.  As on previous tours there will also be a photo competition to test your observation skills.

The tour will end with a celebration and prize giving dinner.
