Charles Kingsley lived here, Charles Dickens wrote about it, William Turner painted it and Rex Whistler featured it. Charles Kingsley (1819-1875), lived here as a child and returned many times as an adult. His description of the village has hardly changed after all this time.
Much to see and do
Watch the must-see film show of the history of the village and visit the extensive souvenir shop in the Visitor Centre, before walking down to visit the converted stable yard to see the donkeys and skilled craftsmen creating beautiful silks and pottery. Then walk on down the cobbled street with glorious views. It tumbles its way through flower-strewn cottages, broken by little passageways and winding lanes to explore, down to the ancient fishing harbour and C14th quay. Along the way, visit the two museums, Kingsley Museum and Fisherman’s Cottage.
Or pre-book a village tour with Jana Edwards who is a mine of information about village history and traditions.
