Smugglers and Sea-Dogs Tour

This swashbuckling and salty tour goes in search of smugglers and sea dogs to pretty fishing villages, steep cobbled streets and mediaeval inns where tales abound of daring moonlit exploits and battles between the customs men and the "gentlemen of the night" or "owlers" as smugglers were more commonly called.

Smugglers and Sea-Dogs Tour Itinerary

We visit Sussex, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and the villages of Bucklers Hard, Lulworth Cove, Polperro and Clovelly. Search for sea dogs like Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh, shipwrecks, their wreckers and lighthouses shrouded in mist. On this tour, one night's accommodation is at Hayes Barton, Devon, where you can experience the luxury of a four poster bed in the very room where Sir Walter Raleigh was born in 1552. Wat's ghost is optional!
