Sidmouth Sensations & Pickles in Plymouth

Sidmouth Sensations & Pickles in Plymouth

There are few better places to enjoy the last dash of autumn than Sidmouth and fewer places that capture changing times better than Plymouth with its fascinating history and tales of trade that have been responsible for a fair few pickles around the world....



Sidmouth Sensations & Pickles in Plymouth


Plymouth’s harbour has a lot to answer for,

 attracting merchants from around the world with their goods for trade,

and offering home to the Royal Naval fleet.


Traders brought their cargo ashore,

 including vital ingredients for making one of the most famous drinks in the world. Gin.



Even Dartmoor has a part to play in the gin story,

 as its peaty soil and granite rock form a great filtration system to purify water,

 that gets distilled with ingredients a couple of miles away.



We’ll travel over Dartmoor National Park to take in some beautiful scenery

 as well as to see where the gin process starts,

 and we’ll take a tour of Plymouth Gin to learn how this magical liquid gets processed.


 Add in some time for shopping in Exeter,  the warm red cliffs of Sidmouth for a backdrop,

 a spot of sightseeing at Tavistock,

and before you know it, five days have flown by on this intoxicating late season tour.
