Silversea Luxury Cruises A FOWEY (Cornwall)

FOWEY (Cornwall)

Nestled in the mouth of a wooded estuary, Fowey (pronounced Foy) is still very much a working china-clay port as well as a focal point for the sailing fraternity. Increasingly, it's also a favored home of the rich and famous. Good and varied dining and lodging options abound; these are most in demand during Regatta Week in mid- to late August and the annual Fowey Festival of Words and Music in mid-May. View more

The Bodinnick and Polruan ferries take cars as well as foot passengers across the river for the coast road on to Looe.A few miles west of Fowey are a pair of very different gardens: the Eden Project, a futuristic display of plants from around the world, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, a revitalized reminder of the Victorian age.

Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway

Relax enjoying a traditional Cornish Cream tea aboard a nostalgic steam-hauled locomotive train of the 1950s.


Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway

The Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway was built at a cost of £35,000 (approximately $85,000 at the time) following a study commissioned in 1831 by local landowner Sir William Molesworth of Pencarrow. The line from Wadebridge to Wenfordbridge, with a branch to Bodmin, was intended to carry sand from the Camel estuary to inland farms for use as fertiliser.

Reporting the opening of the Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway in 1834, the 'West Briton' stated, 'A more grand and imposing sight was never, perhaps, witnessed in the county'. It was the first steam-powered railway in Cornwall and one of the first in Britain to carry passengers. Today, experience the past brought to life with a journey aboard a steam hauled locomotive train.


Your excursion begins with a journey by motorcoach to Bodmin General Station, where you join the steam train. Spend fifty minutes aboard taking in the old world charm of the steam trains. This railway is Cornwall's only standard gauge railway still operated by steam locomotives. At your table within the carriage, you are served a traditional Cornish cream tea of scones, jam, and clotted cream, accompanied by the finest English tea or coffee.


A scenic coach ride back to Fowey at the end of your train journey rounds off the tour.


Please note: There is an uphill walk from the tender landing area and 15 steps to climb to reach the tour vehicles. This tour requires a minimal amount of walking; however, guests must be able to embark/disembark the coach and coach via steps. During the stop made for the train to change direction and the steam engine to run around its train (10 -15 minutes at Bodmin Parkway)guests may disembark to watch the proceedings, take photos, or just stretch their legs.

Cornish Scenic Drive & Cream Tea

Explore the Cornish villages, history, and traditions of Britain during this half-day sightseeing excursion, with a visit to Polperro for cream tea.


Polperro

Depart the pier towards Polperro passing through Lostwitheil. Your route crosses the peaceful Cornish countryside filled with small villages, granite farmhouses, and hedged fields threaded by narrow roads before reaching the village of Polperro. This storybook village is home to narrow, winding streets, cottages perched on steep slopes overlooking a tiny, picturesque harbour, wonderful cliff-path walks and interesting shops.


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', traditionally accompanied by a scone. Here in the south-west of England, the cream reigns supreme with the people of both Cornwall and Devon claiming all other versions of a 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 home-made strawberry jam, this makes for a seductive and delicious tea-time treat. Having enjoyed the cream tea stop there will be time to browse the local shops and explore the area.


Reboard the coach and travel along the fringes of Bodmin Moor, renowned for its connections with the 18th-century smuggling fraternity.


Please note: There is an uphill walk from the tender landing area and 15 steps to climb to reach the tour vehicles. This tour requires a moderate amount of walking over surfaces that include cobblestones in some areas. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. The village of Polperro is traffic-free; therefore, guests are required to walk at least one mile (1.6 kilometres) between the village and the harbour front and the coach drop-off point. There are horse and cart rides and 'trams' for guests who feel they cannot manage the walk, but transportation into the village may be limited and its availability cannot be guaranteed. There is a small charge for this transport which guests must pay in local currency directly.

Countryside of Cornwall & Pencarrow House


Pencarrow House

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 45-minute drive to Pencarrow House. 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 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.


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.


During your visit, see fine furniture, family portraits, and ceramics, notably the Pencarrow family rose bowl. Afterwards, coffee and tea are served, followed by some time at your leisure to explore the extensive gardens, highlighted by a lovely Italian garden and adjacent rockery.


Having experienced this lovely Georgian estate, re-board your coach for the approximate 45-minute drive back to the pier and the awaiting ship.


Please note: There is an uphill walk from the tender landing area and 15 steps to climb to reach the tour vehicles. This tour requires a moderate amount of walking, at your discretion, to explore the interior and ground. It is suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. The garden and first floor of the house is wheelchair-accessible; a video tour is available for those who cannot negotiate the stairs.

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.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking. There are several flights of stairs and uneven natural surfaces, with a viewing platform reached by a half-mile walk uphill. 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. Space on this tour is limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Immerse yourself in the luscious majesty of a real secret English garden on this delightful excursion to the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Lose yourself in this monumental historic garden that was lost to overgrowth in 1914 with WWI and not rediscovered until seventy years later.


The 45-minute drive to Heligan through the Cornish countryside is picturesque. Rolling past small villages and granite farmhouses and imagine life here in days gone by. The fields give way to rolling downs on the approach to Heligan (the Cornish name for the willow tree).


The Lost Gardens, established first in 1200 and tended by the same family for some four hundred years, were abandoned in 1914 when the garden staff went to fight WWI. Situated near the fishing village of Mevagissey, the Lost Gardens are comprised of eighty acres of land with a complex of walled gardens, greenhouses, and an award winning productive garden where the gardeners maintain Victorian gardening practices. This is an extremely special project, which has led it to become one of the largest garden restoration projects in the country.


In 1991 the Lost Gardens were "rediscovered" and have been beautifully restored to incorporate rockeries, summerhouses and a crystal grotto. Choose to either follow the guided walk or explore the gardens at leisure. There are benches throughout the gardens, offering the opportunity to sit and enjoy the tranquility provided by the spectacular environment.


After this peaceful visit, make the 45-minute return trip to Fowey harbor to tender back to the ship.
