Guided Walks around Boscastle with folklorist Steve Patterson

Summer is here which means the Museum will be starting our weekly guided walks from the Museum.  This will be a great chance to explore Boscastle in an unusual and inspiring manner and to see the Museum in the context of the surrounding landscape and its folklore.  Tickets are £7 per person, £6 concessions (ticket price includes a visit to the Museum at any time during the week of the walk).  Walks will start outside the Museum on Wednesdays from July to September at 2pm.  Sensible shoes and a bottle of water recommended.  No need to pre-book.
