Step aboard the ever-popular MV Van Gogh and enjoy a leisurely cruise to the perfectly preserved fishing village of Honfleur, filled with half-timbered houses and cobbled streets.

Next, enjoy a relaxed and stress-free journey to Tresco and experience the very best of this tiny corner of England in spring bloom. During your time here, don’t miss our optional excursion to Tresco Abbey Gardens, where you will find a unique collection of plants that flourish in the warm Gulf Steam climate, ranging from South African Cacti to Tall Palms from Chile. Alternatively, you might like to explore the island of St. Mary’s, with safe beaches and a number of delightful nature trails.
And that’s not all… we even include a visit to the Eden Project, home to the largest conservatories in the world. These futuristic creations house a myriad of plants and environments, enabling you to travel the world in one visit!
