St. Mary’s, Isles of Scilly
The magical Isles of Scilly lie 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. St Mary’s, the largest of the five inhabited islands, is a delight with white sand beaches, tranquil waters and stunning seascapes. Optional excursions explore both St. Mary’s and Tresco, two of the beautiful cluster of islands that are worlds apart from everyday life.
St. Peter Port, Guernsey (Channel Islands)
The attractive town of St. Peter Port is a delight with cobbled streets, steep stairways and alleyways winding their way down between the houses to a picturesque waterfront of grey and white stone buildings. The second largest of the Channel Islands has a wonderful coastline with beautiful bays, and pastoral scenery.
Rouen is the historic capital of Normandy, situated 75 miles from the Seine estuary. Victor Hugo called Rouen ‘the city of a hundred spires’. Its Old Town is a delightful maze of narrow, cobblestone streets lined with wonderful gothic churches including the magnificent Cathedrale Notre Dame and the Eglise St. Maclou. Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431 at Rouen’s Place du Vieux-Marche.
Honfleur, with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour is set in a sheltered cove off the Seine’s tidal estuary. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Honfleur was spared during the bombing of World War Two and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and fine souvenir shops.
