A day experience from the port of Falmouth or Fowey
Join your Cornwall Discovered representative for a day of exploring some of mid Cornwall’s historical highlights. Starting in the former Capital of Cornwall, Lostwithiel, we will explore the quaint streets of this stannary town, which is now an antique collector’s paradise, with many antique shops hidden within the small alleyways. Heading to Restormel Castle we will then explore one of the most astonishing castles of Britain which affords the visitor breath-taking views across the Fowey valley. After a local lunch, we will fast-forward a few centuries to discover the magnificent late Victorian country house of Lanhydrock. With plenty of free time incorporated, there will be time to enjoy a traditional cream tea or a gentle stroll around some gardens as well as learning all about the history of this impressive estate.
Join your Cornwall Discovered representative for a day of digging into Cornwall’s mining heritage. Our morning will be spent discovering the UK’s only china clay museum, Wheal Martyn. This museum uncovers the history of this unique industry and tells the stories of the people who were involved in Cornwall’s ‘white pyramids’. It would only be fitting to enjoy a pasty lunch before heading to the second hidden highlight of the day – Treffry viaduct in the World Heritage site of Luxulyan Valley. Here you will have the opportunity to learn more about the mining background from a local historian and to gain a further understanding of the work undertaken by the Cornwall Heritage Trust, before some free time to appreciate the beauty of this unfrequented valley.
