Lucy Symons

Lucy has lived a peripatetic life which has encompassed several different roles, many of which revolve around travel – whether that’s touring around Europe acting on various stages, or just through her disembodied voice as she guides visitors via headphones through southern Italian architectural and art tours.

Although lucky enough to have travelled around Hungary extensively via train (no timetable to speak of, no doors, lots of goats and chickens… and don't get her started on the loos – it's how she learned the Magyar for "diabolical"...), her absolute favourite rail journey ever is on the Rhaetian Railway’s quaint Arosa-Bahn from Chur to Arosa in Switzerland. The views are astonishing as you wend your way through mountains and lakes and as you chug up the mountain towards the incredible Langweiser viaduct you positively flash back in time to the twenties when sunny Arosa was your health spa destination of choice.

We're thrilled to have Lucy as part of the Greentraveller team, she enjoys seeing the less travelled corners of England and meeting the amazing, inspirational owners of the green properties we list in Green Places to Stay.
