Walkaboutwest is based in South East Cornwall and specialises in guided walks and tours in and around Cornwall and West Devon. Professional tour guide, Mark Camp, has been leading walks since 2000 when he gained his Blue Badge (the highest qualification for tour guides in the UK). He is also one of only a handful of guides accredited to work at the Cornish World Heritage Mining sites.
Mark leads walks around Looe And Polperro on demand. No two walks are the same and can cover everything from smuggling to tourism. His main interests are local history, industrial and prehistoric archaeology and art and literature. But he can also offer tours on most subjects and in many other parts of Cornwall.
