Virtual Walking Tour of Fowey, Cornwall

This is an online version of a physical walking tour which I often take with guests in person. Through use of pictures and commentary I will recreate as far as possible, the feeling of being in the town and experiencing the unique feel and hidden corners of one of Cornwall's gems, for you to enjoy at home.

Interesting architecture; the history of the settlement, people and industry; a sixteenth century castle and other defences; our beautiful Church; flowers, woodland and wildlife; activity on the water; Daphne du Maurier plus lots more!

We will take a few stops on virtual wayside seats to catch our breath and have time for questions.
