Guided Walk across the Sands to Piel Island

Led by Ben Pinder and the well known local historian, and local legend, John Murphy, it’s a fantastic opportunity to walk across the bay to the magical island to visit the castle that the monks built.

In these walks you can learn all about the history of Piel Castle as well as learning about the medicinal and wild edibles encountered. There’s also the chance to see all manner of wild life plus you get to meet the new king of Piel Island! It’s a great day out for all ages.

The tours last about four hours, with plenty of breaks and time for a cheeky pint in the pub.

Meeting point: Snab Point on the southern tip of Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness

Start time: 11am

Price: Adult £10 | Under 12’s free
