Join the Cornish fishermen at the Annual Oyster Gathering

As we start heading towards the end of winter, we can now also start looking forward to getting out and about more as temperatures get warmer. One event that those soon to be enjoying a holiday in Cornwall can look forward to is the Annual Oyster Gathering 2013 in Falmouth.

Those staying in 5 star cottages Cornwall can get involved with this great Cornish tradition and join some of the local oyster fishermen on a trip out to sea from Mylor Yacht Harbour. Although this is a small, local festival, it provides the perfect opportunity to learn first-hand about the dedicated Cornish fisherman.

29 March-1 April is the final weekend of the oyster gathering season and there is plenty going on in Falmouth. Those who want to get up close to the action can go on a boat trip on the Fal River, whilst those who would rather stay on land can sample some fresh culinary delights prepared by local chefs. There will also be a seafood market where visitors can purchase local fish to take home.
