Detailed Description

The Durrells television series, based on Gerald Durrell’s three autobiographical books, was aired from 2016 to 2019. For many, it was their first contact with the amazing stories and memories of the 11-year old Gerald. The descriptions of their life in the Corfu of the 30s, were to become the basis of his first books and set him on a course to become one of the world’s greatest naturalists and writers about conservation. Meanwhile, his older brother Lawrence was already a budding writer, destined to rise to fame, and soon to be writing “Prospero’s Cell” his book based on his experiences in Corfu.

Since arriving here in 1935, the Durrels have become a major part of Corfu’s history. Gerald’s books put Corfu “on the map” in yet another way and many of his readers got to know the island through them.

The Durrells series made the story available to a much wider audience due of course to the medium of TV… Most of the series was filmed on location in Corfu, and during that 4 year period, Corfiots slowly became accustomed to the strange markings and arrows pointing towards the various filming locations for the crews. The Durrell Tour in Corfu Town takes you to these locations, allowing fans of the series to recognize and see for themselves, the various places where it was all created.

The tour takes you from the Boschetto Gardens where there are bronze busts of both Gerald and Lawrence, to the Old Fortress’s “moat” , where the scenes of the family’s arrival in Corfu where filmed. Also, St.George’s Palace which doubled as a bank for one scene, and the neighborhood of Tenedos where a full local market was set up for the series’ needs. As scenes were filmed all around the city, it is a great opportunity to see many of the sights and find out about both their history and the part they played in the filming.

So whether you put yourselves mentally into the “shoes” of Gerald, Larry, Margo, Louise, or Leslie, you will be sure to get to know Corfu Town well. And next time you view an episode you will be able to say “I was there too!”
