Quirky Cornwall, so remote from the rest of the British Isles with lifestyles and landscapes that are more similar to those found in the more rural parts of France. Yet Cornwall’s tourism industry couldn’t get any better. Away from the harsher seasons the beaches of Cornwall come alive to the sound of tourists spending their well earned pennies…some even settling down here or purchasing a second home!
Home to the Cornish pasty, the birthplace of King Arthur and the Pirates of Penzance, Cornwall is a unique experience satisfying a wide range of needs and holiday requirements.
Newquay is situated in the northern region of Cornwall and offers some of the best beaches in the whole of Europe. The surfing capital of Great Britain, Newquay is full to bursting with surfing clubs and shops. There are held a number of major surfing competitions here at Fistral Beach. A surfers’ paradise, the waves are challenging with some of the most outstanding breaks in the country. While beach holiday lovers will enjoy a choice between the eleven individual beaches, Newquay has much to offer in terms of things to do and places to see as well as being in an ideal situation to be a great touring base. The coastal roads provide intriguing beauty spots for picnics and photo taking at many a turn as you discover yet another dramatic view.
Cornwall offers many things and above all it offers to teach you how to do the unofficial national sport, that of surfing the waves. Choose between the Reef Surf School, British Surfing Academy, National Surfing Centre and the Cornwall Surf Academy, all with qualified instructors and many of which situated in Newquay.
Newquay town centre offers plenty of choice of activities for people seeking an alternative to the waves. Enter the Newquay Attractions Trail providing a comprehensive and exhausting array of things to do when the children get fed up with building sand castles. Thirteen unsophisticated but charming fun filled activities are on offer including a cider farm and an owl sanctuary within ten miles of one another.
Much in Newquay is family orientated, the theatre, Newquay Zoo, a cinema and many cosy little olde world cafes in between are all welcoming and enjoyable places to pass the time whilst in the town.
Newquay is situated in an ideal location for exploring one of Cornwall’s main features, that of the ruins of Tintagel Castle. The castle is steeped in legend as it is reported to be the birthplace of King Arthur. While at Tintagel, why not visit the charming village of Boscastle made famous for surviving the flash floods of 2004.
England’s most western county of Cornwall is fairly remote in terms of its accessibility from other parts of the country and resembles nowhere else with its own tongue. Resembling Welsh and similar to the French Breton, Cornish is spoken by a small minority of people who are generally discovered in the rural parts of the county.
Bordering the county of Devon, Cornwall is reached by the A38 and the A30. Car ferry links Portsmouth to Torpoint and a rail bridge, the Royal Albert Bridge providing the only other main transport link.
Cornwall has a flourishing artistic side. Whatever your bent, Cornwall attracts the creatively advanced. Painters, actors, writers, entertainers and crafts folk settle down here in their droves and consequently attracts similar such folk to its stimulating artistic scene. Lovers of the performance arts will enjoy the open air, ocean- backdrop of the Minack Theatre. Lovers of the visual arts will enjoy the galleries here from the Tate St Ives to the Bank Street Gallery with many open workshops with artists displaying their wares as you pass through Cornwall’s artistic communities like St Ives.
Lovers of the natural scenery will enjoy the ruggedness of the Cornwall cliff edges and the tiny windswept villages. The views at Lands End, the British Isles southern most point is magnificent and the sea are awe-inspiring. Although an attempt is undertaken to commercialise the area and to optimise income from tourism, Lands End is still very small scale. There are a number of opportunities to enjoy refreshment and the ever-present Cornish pasty as well as other features that serve to ensure the children don not become too bored. The RNLI display is incredible and should not be missed at any cost!
While in Cornwall, on a similar natural theme, a trip to the Millennium’s Eden Project is much recommended. Constructed to educate and remind ourselves in this modern day and age how interdependent we are with our natural environment, the Eden Project is made up of every climate in the world and has been labelled a Living Theatre.
Other beautiful offerings in Cornwall are Tamar Valley, Bodmin Moor, the Cardinham Woods nature reserve, the unspoilt fishing villages of southern Cornwall as well as the picturesque area of outstanding natural beauty, Liskeard.
Heading to Newquay Airport
from the east, it’s the A30 that will deliver you to your destination via Bodmin. Follow the signs for the airport upon your approach to Newquay. If in the west and travelling to the airport, take the A30 and follow signs for Wadebridge and Indian Queens.
Entering Cornwall, you will need to take the A38 and the A30. A car ferry service links Portsmouth to Torpoint. The Royal Albert rail bridge provides the only other main transport link to the county.
You can now fly direct to and from Gatwick, Bristol, Leeds, Dublin and Manchester airports, making a weekend in the West country a possibility for huge numbers of people. Public transport is a bit thin on the ground down there so you'd be well advised to hire a car at Newquay Airport.
