Day 2 | Wednesday, 18 April
A day on the Helford River and the Lizard peninsula
We spend the day to the south of Truro on the beautiful Helford
River and on the Lizard Peninsula, the southern-most tip of
mainland Britain, starting with a morning visit to one of our
favourite gardens, Trebah, a sub-tropical
paradise with a stunning coastal backdrop and one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall.
After lunch, at Trebah, we venture into the centre of the Lizard
Peninsula, to spend the afternoon at Bonython a relatively new
garden, created by Sue Nathan when she and her husband bought
Bonython in 1999. Little did she realise then, that they were about
to embark on an all-consuming journey of learning and discovery,
which was to lead to the creation of this magnificent garden.
Late in the afternoon we return to The Alverton, to freshen up and
walk into Truro, for dinner at Tabb's, one of our favourite restaurants.
Today's total driving is
about 50 miles/80 km
