Gerald Durrell’s Corfu

Welcome to Gerald Durrell’s Corfu, the website to tell you all about Gerald Durrell Week, a magical and fascinating experience for anyone who has been inspired by Gerald Durrell’s books.

Gerald Durrells Corfu takes place every Spring – usually in May, depending on the climate and stage of the season.  The week centres around the North West of the island and the study centre is a Venetian Manor House where we meet up every morning to prepare for the day’s activities.  Each day we explore different locations nearby, carefully chosen for their specific environment composition.  Transport is provided and each day is led by a different specialist, expert in the flora and fauna of the island and relevant to the work of Gerald Durrell during his time spent in Corfu.

Hope to see you for the next Gerald Durrell Week  which will be held 13th to 20th April 2019!
