Gardens & Art in Devon and Cornwall
April 28 - May 4, 2019
7 days | 6 nights
This spring visit to England’s southwest peninsula begins in a secluded valley from which we explore some of Devon and Cornwall's most extraordinary gardens. The region's distinctive subtropical microclimate allows for exotic plantings that flourish early in the season. Later we move to the coast near the iconic seaside town of St. Ives. A nexus for British modernist artists in the early 20th century, it is now home to a newly expanded branch of the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Gardens.
