Wat je gaat doen

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.
Also offered as an early evening option 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!
Note: at your option, some unmade paths can be included, so please adjust footwear accordingly.
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.

Former Duke of Edinburgh Award leader, Local Authority public rights of way team member and currently volunteer rep for the South West Coast Path Association, I am an experienced and passionate walker. I have good knowledge of local plants and wildlife to help you identify what you are seeing.
I love to share my home town and my home stretch of the stunning coast path with friends and visitors.
My family dates back in Cornwall to the 1500s and I have lived in Fowey for nine years.
I will lead you safely and keep you informed and entertained as we walk.

Thank you Lucy for making our day extra special and going out of your way for us. You made our day really special. We left with a much deeper understanding of Cornwall culture.

Excellent walk with Lucy in every way: her historic and geographic knowledge of the area made it such a treat to walk the surrounds and then the actual TOWN of Fowey. So many anecdotes and insights - thank you, Lucy! Looking forward to a coastal walk with Lucy tomorrow...

Our family enjoyed a lovely tour with Lucy around Fowey. Lucy catered the discussion to our interests, and her love for the history and essence of the town came through.

This was a very easy, leisurely stroll around Fowey. Very enjoyable. Lucy was able to provide real local information you would not get from a guide book or online "where to go/what to see". If I had more time, I'd definitely have done more of her guided tours.

We are two Americans taking a Cornish Holiday and started our 6 days in Fowey. I found Lucy on Airbnb and contracted for the 90 min town walk. We learned a tremendous amount of history from Lucy and had a rigorous walk. Outstanding. Her town walk will be a tough act to follow .
