Walking Week 2016

The Boscastle Festival comprises 2 events held each year - the Walking Week in April and the Food, Art and Craft Festival in October.

Welcome to the 9th Boscastle Walking Week, an intimate event run by local people that has grown in popularity over the years. It's good to welcome new and returning walkers who take pleasure in this beautiful part of north Cornwall.

The Walking Week 2016 will be from Saturday 16th April to Friday 22nd April.

From the very best of Britain’s coastline to wonderful walks amid woods and streams, it’s all on offer during Boscastle’s increasingly popular Walking Week. 

This year sees an extended range of walks and activities for you to pick and mix from. We aim to have something for all ages and abilities.

You could join one of our experienced and informed local guides on a ramble to waterfalls or steep climbs to Cornwall’s highest coastal cliff top, or meander along the country lanes and pathways that would have been familiar to the writer Thomas Hardy, whose life-changing visit to Boscastle produced poetry regarded by many as amongst the finest in the English language. 

As well as walking, a  range of events including Cream Teas and special ‘Meal deals’ will be available. The Festival Dinner will again be held on the Thursday with limited places available on a first come first served basis.
