Please Note: We do not use any names of any living persons, nor do we use any stories related to local families, this tour is based on historical facts but due to the nature of smuggling and pirates, wrecking a vast amount of it's history is down to local folklore and locals stories with snippets of facts due to the only time a pirate or smuggler was caught is when the facts were recorded. Although set within Newquay we do generalise smuggling that accompanies local stories and myths, legends and folklore. This tour is intended for entertainment only and we change the tour as and when we need to in light of new evidence, found history or legends.
