Antony House & Gardens TorpointAntony House & Gardens Torpoint
Antony at Torpoint is superb early 18th-century mansion set in parkland and fine gardens landscaped by renowned Georgian garden designer, Humphrey Repton. Lots of walks in the surrounding woods and the national collection of day lilies.

2010 will be a year like no other for Antony: Director Tim Burton chose Antony to be a key location for the new Disney adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, which was released in cinemas on 5 March 2010. Since filming took place at Antony in 2008, we've been inspired to create our own magical wonderland. The house, garden and estate have been transformed so you can enjoy our tea parties, walk through scenes from the dream-like stories of Alice, and even meet our own Mad Hatters.  more info...

The Monkey Sanctuary - Looe
The Sanctuary is home to a colony of 14 woolly monkeys. They are 3rd and 4th generation descendants of monkeys who were rescued in the 60's and 70's after being captured in the wild and brought to England as pets. Over the years the monkeys have gradually regained their natural social skills and learnt how to raise their young, communicate and organise their hierarchy, as they would have done in the wild.

The Cremyll Ferry Cremyll Ferry - Edgecumbe Belle
The Cremyll Ferry believed to have been operating continuously since 1204 runs from Stonehouse( Plymouth) to Cremyll (Cornwall) and is often referred to as the historic gateway to South East Cornwall. 
The first steam ferry was introduced in 1885 and the current vessel operating is“The Edgcumbe Belle” which was built in 1957 originally for the Railway.
Why not come aboard the Edgcumbe Belle to cross the same path many others did before and feel history repeat itself.
A short 8 minute crossing of the River Tamar departing every 30 minutes, passing many points of interest makes the Cremyll Ferry an attraction in its own right.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Heligan, seat of the Tremayne family for more than 400 years, is one of the most mysterious estates in England. At the end of the nineteenth century its thousand acres were at their zenith, but only a few years later bramble and ivy were already drawing a green veil over this “Sleeping Beauty”. After decades of neglect, the devastating hurricane of 1990 should have consigned the Lost Gardens of Heligan to a footnote in history. Instead, events conspired to bring us here and the romance of their decay took a hold on our imaginations. For more details visit
