With its rural charm, quaint village greens and spectacular, rolling hills, the Cotswolds is one of the UK’s most beautiful stretches of countryside. On your English Explorer Grand Tour, you’ll spend the first half of your holiday exploring this enchanting part of the country, before travelling down to the seaside delights of Devon. With Exeter as your base, you'll enjoy a fantastic day trip to Dartmouth, cruise down the River Dart on a fully accessible boat and be treated to a traditional Devonshire cream tea in Torquay.
As well as ensuring you have plenty of free time to explore Devon and the Cotswolds, we’ve organised several exciting excursions. Your holiday begins with a visit to Gloucester's grand, gothic Cathedral. Over the following days, we’ll take you on a steam train ride through the Forest of Dean and head to Bourton-on-the-Water to experience one of the Cotswolds’ most beloved villages. There, you'll also have the opportunity to tour Bourton’s famous Motor Museum.
Halfway through the holiday, we’ll make the journey to Exeter, stopping along the way for a sea view lunch at Weston-super-Mare. After a day exploring bustling Torquay, we'll make our way to Dartmouth for a scenic and relaxing boat cruise.

Forest of Dean Steam Train

The Motor Museum contains hundreds of classic cars and vehicles, some of which date back to the early 1900s. The exhibition will take you on a journey from the first motorised transport right through to the modern-day, offering a fascinating insight into how motor vehicles have changed and the impact they’ve had on wider society.

Cream Tea in Torquay
In the afternoon we will take you for a classic Devonshire cream tea. Remember, it's always cream before the jam in Devon! Then it's time to hop on the coach and head back to the hotel for another cracking three-course dinner.
