Day Walks and Tours Around Cornwall
walkitcornwall's 1 day walks and tours exploring Cornwall's coast and countryside
When we are not arranging and guiding our walking holidays in Cornwall walkitcornwall works in conjunction with many accommodation providers in our home town of Falmouth.
Depending on the weather and at short notice you can come on a days walk around the Helford River or Lizard peninsula. By walking with us for a day between 10.30am and 4.30pm you will engage with some of the most spectacular and unique landscape Cornwall has to offer.
If we have a walking group and we are going further a field in Cornwall you might be able to join us if we are not fully booked. Just give us a ring or get the B&B or hotel to ring us on your behalf. From £30-£60 per person per day depending on where we are going.
Remember if we’re going out, we’re going somewhere special. So don’t miss out, give us a call or an email.
The Lizard peninsula has it all. Unique geology and millions of years of tectonic movements and weathering has carved out some beautiful coves, headlands and beaches. The Serpentine rock had its heyday as the "poor mans marble" utilised as fireplaces and plinths in the Victorian age. Queen Victoria made this amazing rock fashionable.
Kynance Cove is the jewel of the Lizard. We might also go to Cadgwith or Porthleven, the archetypal closely knit fishing villages with thatched cottages and many a fishing and smuggling tale.
Choughs anyone? Hopefully we will see some of these birds that are interlinked with the very cultural fabric of Cornwall featuring the story of King Arthur. There are the stories of Marconi, the shipwrecks and the marvellous heathers unique to even Cornwall.
The Helford River is a drowned river valley and includes Frenchmans Creek, where the pirate novel by Daphne DuMaurier was based. But it is also where ancient oak woodlands are standing and we will spy on a variety of estuary birds. The flora and fauna around the Helford are special and protected within the Marine Conservation Area.
Falmouth: Some information.
The maritime town of Falmouth has the 3rd deepest water terminal in the world after Sydney and Rio de Janeiro.
It was also home to the Falmouth Packets, the forerunner of the Post Office that delivered packages all around the world.
Falmouth overlooks the Carrick Roads. This is the expanse of water that includes the Fal and Percuil rivers, the former leads up to Truro, the latter being the maritime entrance to the Roseland peninsula.
Opposite is St Mawes and if one follows the coast south there is 42kms of shoreline of the exquisite Helford River, the gateway to the Lizard peninsula.
Pendennis and St Mawes castles guard the entrance to the Carrick Roads with the town of Penryn and the city of Truro up river.
The award winning Maritime museum in Falmouth is definately worth a visit at one end of the ribbon development that is the main shopping area.
There are an excellent variety of shops, galleries and coffee houses to watch the world go by or for just gazing at the harbour and coastline.
There are numerous banks for international visitors and Falmouth is a major stop off for cruise liners.
There are music and drama productions, gallery shows and films to be seen and heard every day of the week, all year round which is also why we base our guests here for our walking holidays and vacations.
