  • A Birthplace of America tour of Bristol
  • A 2-day tour of Devon and Cornwall following a similar route taken by John Wesley
  • The Platt at Port Isaac where he preached
  • Gwennap Pit where John he preached eighteen times between 1762 and 1789 and still in use today
  • Digory Isbell’s Cottage at Trewint
  • The 1620 embarkation point for the Pilgrim Fathers in Plymouth
