Newquay, Cornwall, England
An Antipodean travel company serving World Travellers since 1983
Newquay is a popular seaside resort in Cornwall, England, visited by Odyssey Traveller as part of our tour of Devon and Cornwall.
Beginning in the city of Bristol, our Devon and Cornwall small group tour explores the history of this fascinating region of England, with still-present Celtic traditions and a long and cosmpolitan history as a major exporter of tin to the Mediterranean. Delving into the legends of King Arthur, we visit Tintagel Castle on the north Cornish coast, believed to be the birthplace of the mythical king.
Devon and Cornwall are home to some of England’s most magnificent scenery, varying from the granite headland of Land’s End to the subtropical Tresco Abbey Gardens on the Isles of Scilly. We drive down country lanes, and visit seasidetowns such as St Austell and Penzance.
Since 1983, Odyssey Traveller has been serving global travellers. Every small group tour is designed for mature and senior travellers who want an authentic experience of place, learning about history, art and culture as they see the world. We offer small group tours of between six to twelve people, led by a travel director and guides chosen for their local knowledge.
