Silversea Luxury Cruises A FOWEY (Cornwall)

FOWEY (Cornwall)

Located at the point where the River Fowey spills out into the English Channel, Fowey teeters on a steep bank over its picturesque estuary setting. A postcard-perfect town of quaint English charm, elegant churches peer over stone streets, while friendly craft stores and antique shops sell idiosyncratic wares. In the waters, spindly crabs cling to the shore, as little boats bob back and forth. Set between Portsmouth and Falmouth, quaint Fowey is perfectly placed for exploring more of Cornwall's legendary coastline. View more

Rent a boat to see sleepy Fowey's picturesque slopes from the harbour, or explore on foot for some of the best hiking opportunities. The South West Coast Path instantly immerses you in some of the region's finest sweeping coastal views, as you crunch along trails, with wildflower-sprinkled fields on one side and the rhythmic wash of the waves on the other. Hike to discover hidden beaches and cutaway coves, or take on the tricky trail to St Catherine's Castle - a fortress hidden within a seam in the headland. The golf ball domes of the Eden Project contain a unique greenhouse garden project from the future, incubating a thriving indoor rainforest environment. Or, head to the Lost Gardens Heligan, an incredible 200 hectares of Victorian gardens, which were lost below a mesh of unruly weeds, until their rediscovery 25 years ago. After a day of walking and exploring, nothing tastes better - and is more deserved - than a cone of salt-and-vinegar lashed chips and freshly battered cod.

Coastal Hiking Trek

Embrace the stunning beauty of the Cornwall coast in an active new way during this scenic and invigorating, half-day hiking excursion.

Howey, Gorran Haven, Medieval Streets, Beach, Cliffs, Coastal Path, Guided Hike

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to the fishing village of Gorran Haven. Upon arrival and led by your guide, set off on-foot through the narrow medieval streets and towards the beach, then continue uphill to the cliffs from where your picturesque hike along the southwest coast path begins.


Wild Meadows, Clifftop Paths, Panoramic Views, Turbot Point, Sheer Cliffs, Bodrugan's Leap

Your route takes you through wild meadows, and along clifftop paths offering magnificent panoramic views in all directions. The coastal path then descends towards Turbot Point, where the sheer cliffs are known as Bodrugan's Leap, named after Sir Henry Bodrugan. He made his escape from his pursuing enemy, Sir Richard Edgcumbe of Cothele, by leaping off the cliff to a boat which took him to safety in France.


Chapel Point, Port Mellon, Mevagissey Bay, Harbour & Village, Free Time, Shops, Cafés

Next, hike to Chapel Point and continue on to Port Mellon, a delightful cove with a long boatbuilding history. As the route nears closer to the end of the walk, your first view of Mevagissey and the lovely sweep of Mevagissey Bay comes into focus. As the lane descends, see splendid views of the picturesque harbour before arriving for some free time to enjoy Mevagissey at leisure. You can explore the village, relax and soak up the scenery, browse the shops, and/or visit one its many charming cafes for a Cornish cream tea at your own expense. At the conclusion of your tour, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.

Cornish Scenic Drive & Cream Tea

Explore the Cornish villages, history and traditions of Britain during this immersive, half-day sightseeing excursion, with a stop for traditional Cornish Cream Tea.


Fowey, Lostwitheil, Cornish Countryside, Small Villages, Granite Farmhouses, Hedged Fields

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to Polperro. En route, pass through Lostwitheil and traverse the peaceful Cornish countryside filled with small villages, granite farmhouses, and hedged fields threaded by narrow roads. Your first stop is at a local café in or near Polperro for traditional Cornish Cream Tea.


Traditional Cornish Cream Tea

Traditional Cornish Cream Tea is practically an institution in the British Isles. Custom dictates that tea should actually be an event, one that relaxes and soothes the senses. Tea is served, often with cream (if taken 'white') and traditionally accompanied by a scone. Here, in the south-west of England, cream tea reigns supreme, with the people of both Cornwall and Devon claiming all other versions of cream tea are inferior to their own; anything else is second-best, or so it is claimed. The origins of clotted cream are lost in the depths of history, although monks were making butter from clotted cream in the early-14th century. Spread thickly on freshly-baked scones, with lashings of homemade strawberry jam, this makes for a seductive and delicious tea-time treat.


Polperro Village, Free Time, Narrow Streets, Cottages, Harbour, Cliff-Paths, Shops, Bodmin Moor

After your Cornish Cream Tea, some free time is made available to explore Polperro. This storybook village is home to narrow, winding streets, cottages perched on steep slopes overlooking a tiny, picturesque harbour, panoramic cliff-paths and interesting shops to discover. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier along the fringes of Bodmin Moor, renowned for its connections with the 18th-century smuggling fraternity.

Cornwall Countryside & Pencarrow House

Explore the spectacular natural beauty of the Cornwall countryside and an exquisite Georgian-era mansion during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Fowey, Pencarrow House, Carriage Drive, Beautiful Gardens and Woodlands

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 45-minute drive to Pencarrow House. En route, traverse the peaceful Cornwall countryside, which is filled with small villages, granite farmhouse and hedged fields threaded by narrow roads. One of the West Country's few remaining privately-owned, great Georgian houses, Pencarrow House has been the home of the Molesworth-St. Aubyn family since the Elizabethan Age. Located at the end of the approximately one-mile-long (1.6-kilometre-long) Carriage Drive lined with numerous conifers, rhododendrons and camellias, Pencarrow House is nestled amidst a beautiful garden and woodland setting.


Private, Guided Tour, Inner-Hall, Drawing Room, Music Room, Rococo Ceiling

Upon arrival, your private, guided tour begins in the Inner-Hall, which is adorned with outstanding paintings. From here, proceed to the Drawing Room, which was renovated in 1841 and features beautiful, rose-coloured damask curtains taken from a Spanish ship captured off the Philippines in 1762. In the Music Room, the Rococo ceiling depicts the four seasons, and fine mouldings of birds, fruit and flowers decorate the maple-grained panelling.


Fine Furniture, Family Portraits, Ceramics, Rose Bowl, Coffee/Tea, Free Time, Gardens

Next, see fine furniture, family portraits and ceramics, notably the Pencarrow family Rose Bowl. Following your tour, coffee and tea are served. Afterward, enjoy some free time at your leisure to explore the extensive gardens, which are highlighted by a lovely Italian garden and adjacent rockery. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.

Lanhydrock House

Experience the beauty and history of Fowey and its environs during this half-day excursion to Lanhydrock House.


Lanhydrock House

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 45-minute drive to the valley of the River Fowey between Liskeard and Lostwithiel. It is here that Lanhydrock overlooks the lower part of this beautiful river. Landhydrock is closely surrounded by its own plantations, which were sadly depleted by storms in 1990. Upon arrival, see the avenue climb gently through the park. The gatehouse appears in the distance, and behind it are the spreading grey house and a little church nearby.


The original Lanhydrock House was laid out around four sides of a quadrangle like an Oxford college. However, by the mid-19th century, the old house was proving inconvenient for modern domestic life. In 1857, Thomas Agar-Robartes, later the 1st Baron Robartes of Lanhydrock and Truro, had it remodelled and enlarged into a fashionable Victorian manner. Unfortunately, the building was ravaged by fire just 24 years later. Only the north wing, with its superb 17th-century gallery and plasterwork, survived. It was left to the 2nd Baron Robartes, who rebuilt the house in a Neo-Jacobean style and modern interior to late-19th-century standards of comfort and convenience.


During your self-guided tour of Lanhydrock House and Gardens, a total of 49 rooms are available for viewing. Together, they evoke the entire spectrum of life in a rich and splendid Victorian household. See the many servants' bedrooms, a fascinating complex of kitchens and larders, the nursery suite where the Agar-Robartes children lived, learned and played, and the grandeur of the dining room with its table laid and ready. Surrounding the house on all sides are gardens ranging from formal Victorian parterres to the wooded higher garden where magnificent displays of magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias climb the hillside to merge with the oak and beech woods all around. At the conclusion of your excursion to Lanhydrock House, re-board your coach and commence the approximate 30-minute drive back to the pier.

Lost Gardens of Heligan

Discover the history of one of the most mysterious estates in England and its award-winning gardens at your leisure during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Fowey, Cornish Countryside, Hedged Fields, Rolling Downs, Heligan

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive through the lovely Cornish countryside, and past small villages and granite farmhouses that offer a glimpse of life here in bygone days. Hedged fields give way to rolling downs on the approach to Heligan (Cornish for 'willow tree').


Lost Gardens, Walled Gardens, Greenhouses, Vegetable Garden, Rockeries, Crystal Grotto

The Lost Gardens, situated near the fishing village of Mevagissey, are comprised of approximately 80 acres (about 32 hectare) of land, plus a complex of walled gardens, greenhouses and a huge vegetable garden. The Lost Gardens are claimed to be the site of the largest garden restoration in Europe. As if from a fairy-tale, the approximately 57-acre (about 23-hectare) gardens were lost for 70 years beneath a mass of ivy, brambles and fallen timber. They were re-discovered in 1991, and have been beautifully restored to incorporate rockeries, summer houses and a crystal grotto.


Self-Guided Tour, Gardens

Upon arrival at the Lost Gardens, ample free time is made available to explore the gardens at your leisure and/or follow the paths for a more extensive look at Heligan. There are benches throughout the gardens, offering an opportunity to sit and enjoy the tranquillity provided by your exquisite surrounds. You can also browse the gift shop for souvenirs and garden-related items. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.

Pit To Port,Wheal Martyn & Charlestown

Discover the historic industries of Cornwall on this fascinating and educational excursion. Stroll the picture-perfect port of Charlestown and learn of the role it once played in local industry. See working waterwheels, vintage trucks, and an operating clay pit, with its modern machines at work.

Wheal Martyn Clay Museum

Departing the pier, drive by coach to your first destination, Wheal Martyn, a museum built around Cornwall's largest mining industry, China Clay. The museum is based around two Victorian China Clay works, much of it now designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Learn of the china clay production industry that extends from 1800 to present day, founded on Cornwall's clay deposits which (along with nearby Devon) are the largest deposits of China Clay in the world. This clay has been the greatest driver of the region's economy for over a century and is used in a surprising array of items, not just ceramics and paint but also spacecraft components!


Enjoy a guided tour of the China Clay works, learning about the lives of the workers and their families who lived amidst the "white pyramids" of Cornwall's dramatic Clay Country. See the industry tools, including vintage commercial vehicles, and explore the ancient buildings such as the crib hut and flat rod tunnel. Walk around the fascinating settling pools, and see Cornwall's largest remaining working waterwheel.


There is free time to explore the museum on your own, perhaps continuing your walk to see the modern working clay pit - an impressive view of massive, modern machinery at work. Walk to the Discovery Centre to learn even more about this economically important industry, or to visit the gift shop and café.


Discover Charlestown's Picturesque Port

Travel just 20 minutes to the Charlestown harbour and step back in time, in sight of the square-rigged ships and ancient buildings of this incredibly well-preserved and photogenic port. Charlestown was constructed as a port in the late 18th century as an export port for the local copper industry. Charles Rashleigh was the main driving force behind the conversion of this once sleepy, small fishing village to this booming port town.


See the harbour's charms for yourself with some free time to walk amongst the port's lovely Georgian buildings and cozy cottages where fishermen once lived before Cornwall's "white gold" boom as China Clay mining industry began to grow. As you walk around you will not be surprised to recall that this lovely and unique port has been featured in many TV series and movies, including "Mansfield Park," "Hornblower," and "The "Onedin Line."


Delve deeper into the history of Charleston's links with Cornish mining or simply relax by the picturesque harbour, whose unspoiled charm has made it a very popular destination for historic television and film work.


Make the short 30-minute transfer to the pier.

This tour is not wheelchair accessible. Guests are recommended to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and to dress according to the weather with rain jackets and sun protection.
