Wat je gaat doen

Ahoy there! Prepare for a real eye-opener as I take you back through centuries of history without overwhelming you with information.
We’ll stroll through my home town of Falmouth from one end of the town to the other. We'll start from The Moor, go up the old High Street then along each of the historic quays to end near the National Maritime Museum, discovering a town steeped in maritime history. Along the way I’ll tell you stories and point out things most people completely miss, many of them in plain view!
During the walk you’ll see locations where the most significant events took place in Falmouth’s history, hear about the people at the heart of the town’s story and learn how Falmouth has evolved over the centuries to become the iconic maritime hub it is today. But be ready for some dark tales, including cannibalism, shipwreck and piracy!
There'll be ample time to take photos of the narrow alleyways, cobbled streets and picturesque views across the Fal estuary to help remember your experience. You are most welcome to take a copy of my quirky hand-drawn map of the route as a souvenir.
You should come away from this experience with a new appreciation of it's rich history. Please get in touch if the dates/times available don't suit your schedule.

I’ve been guiding walks for over 12 years for an international walking holiday organisation and have a passion for history: I love to uncover and share quirky facts and hidden histories, especially in my adopted county of Cornwall.
I aim to bring a place alive by relating stories and showing visitors (and even locals!) interesting things they are unlikely to have noticed themselves.
I’ve lived in Falmouth for over 14 years and have amassed an extensive knowledge of the town’s history. This includes some Cornish words and phrases, and I'll happily share these with you.
I am currently training to be a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, the highest level of professional tour guiding in the UK. I am also in the process of becoming a Hill and Moorland Leader, so you can be assured you're in safe hands.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll start outside the library on The Moor where I'll paint you a mental picture of how it used to be before the town existed. We'll proceed up the old High Street to see the unassuming 18th century old town hall with a dark tale. Our journey then takes us along the waterfront to each of the historic quays, each with its own unique place in maritime history. We finish near the iconic National Maritime Museum at the other end of the town.

We booked a private tour with Angie for our family of four (2 adults and 2 kids) and I would highly recommend adding it to your trip to Falmouth! Angie was very knowledgeable of the local area, with facts around every corner and kept the kids attention throughout! Highly recommend!

What a wonderful way to learn about Falmouth! Angie is a great host, who obviously loves the town and has done a lot of research so was able to tell us some great stories and facts about the places we were looking at as well as the general history of the town and surrounding area. We walked at a good pace which suited us all, and Angie was good at checking we were ok without fussing over us - a key skill in this line of work! We chose to do this on the first morning of our time here, and I’m really pleased we did, as it is a great introduction to the town, and has left us feeling ready for our next stage of exploring.

There is no other way to hear first hand from a resident. This should be the first thing anyone should do when arriving in Falmouth. Brilliant. History, Tales, Folklore, Mystery the walk had it all. Angie herself is keen to continually learn too. A wonderful person to spend a couple of hours listening to and so passionate as a guide. Thank you

Booking this trip was a quick and easy way to see the quirky, interesting parts of Falmouth and learn a bit about the town’s history. Angie was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. I had to change the time of our meeting and Angie was flexible and helpful about that. We walked at a comfortable pace and had time to enjoy the stunning views as we went. Angie was full of information and was an easy person to chat to. She also gave us lots of ideas and advice about other things we could do in the area. A lovely morning, and I’d thoroughly recommend it. Thank you Angie!
