What you'll do

A walk around Fowey to explore the history, literary connections and hidden gems of this lovely Cornish town. All on made-up surfaces, so only general sturdy footwear and clothing required. Some moderate uphill sections involved, at a leisurely pace!
We will cover the maritime and railway history; pilgrims and churches, history, defence and growth of the settlement; former dwellings and settings inspiring writers with local connections. Most of the time is spent with views of the busy estuary.
Offered as an evening tour, to take advantage of the beauty of the town and countryside as darkness falls. Work up an appetite for dinner with sunset, moonrise, stargazing and listening to owls - to name just a few of the dusk delights!
Other things to note
This walk is within the town on made-up surfaces and includes moderate hills (both up and down) but kept to a minimum. Fowey has tiny streets, so I will advise on these and keep you safe near cars.

Lucy’s knowledge was spot on - gave me a lot to take away and further research myself, would definitely recommend. The views and surroundings are extremely special. You won’t regret admiring the beautiful sights whilst having Lucy as a fountain of knowledge alongside you, telling you all about the history of Fowey.

Excellent tour which provides a real insight into the history of Fowey. Got some fantastic photos of the harbour from a range of viewpoints. Lucy is a friendly & knowledgeable guide who was a pleasure to meet! Highly recommend this tour.

Lovely relaxed walk with Lucy through beautiful Fowey. Lucy seems to be heavily involved with the local community, so she has lots of local knowledge.

Great weather for a very informative walk around Fowey, we returned the next day to see everything again in the daylight. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening

Lucy was very personable and communicative right from the word go. First time visiting Fowey and she really made it magical from the start. We felt immersed in the history and she was a fountain of knowledge. Would definitely book a different tour again when we are visiting this part of the world in the future. Valuable asset to her local community. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a personal insight into Fowey.

Lucy was very welcoming and friendly. She took us on a comprehensive tour of Fowey telling us about the history of the town whilst providing insights that you could only get from a local. We thoroughly enjoyed it, it was a perfect way to spend our last night in the area.
