Eastcoast Charms Tour.

This tour along the east coast of Cornwall can show off Helford with it’s river as a result. We have admired fishes jumping out of the water playing & seen dolphins playing. Daphne du Maurier used settings from this area for  ‘Frenchman’s Creek’. If you have some spare time, there is a great 2 hour river cruise from Falmouth showing off this river from it’s best vantage point!

Furthermore, a choice of wonderfully kept gardens are available nearby, Glendurgan and Trebah, both of which attract entry fee.

Following the coast, we come to Falmouth with it’s natural horse-shoe shaped harbour, a busy port and town with quaint little shops along the seafront as well as a great Maritime museum,

Pendennis castle can be visited and across the water from there, one can also see St Mawes castle. Entry fees apply.

On our way to the Roseland peninsula, we also pass Trelissick House & Gardens which can be visited.

The Roseland peninsula.

We cross therefore the river Fal on King Harry ferry and continue to St Just in Roseland. Here is a beautiful ancient church by the shore of the river Fal on sacred grounds from pagan times. Scenes for the Poldark series were filmed here too.

On our way to Mevagissey, a cobble-street quaint fishing village, we pass Caerhays castle. The gardens are open to visitors February to June and the castle from March to June. Entry fees apply.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are nearby. These have been lovingly restored by an army of people and are beautiful.

My photo for this tour is taken at Charlestown harbour and tall ships often found anchored there. This privately owned town has recently changed owner. With a rich working past, it has played back-drop in many films.The Shipwreck & Heritage Museum resides here.

More Royal connections comes in the form of Restormel castle, should you wish to visit.
