Wind in the Willows High Tea

24 May — 2 June 2013

The story began as a series of letters. Grahame wrote the first two Wind in the Willows letters which he sent to his son Alastair, while staying at the Greenbank Hotel.

Kenneth Grahame stayed at the Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth in 1907.

 

During his holiday he found inspiration on a boat trip from Fowey.

Whilst passing the riverbanks, his thoughts turned to beginning the novel 'The Wind in the Willows'.

During the Fal River Festival we will be giving you the opportunity to read a recreation of these letters when you join us for lunch or High Tea any day from Friday 24th May until Sunday 2nd June. 

Try our new Chocoholics Afternoon Tea or come with the family for our special Children’s Tea – with Hot Chocolate and mini treats.  

So come and celebrate the past and the future in our newly appointed 2 AA Rosette Restaurant and relaxing bar because “there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”…or sitting on our terrace watching them!

Event runs everyday throughout the festival 12-4pm.
