Top 5 Things You Have To Do In Cornwall

As you may know, Cornwall has an abundance of wonderful things to see and do.

To help you make the most of it we have chosen a selection of some of our favourite things you must do when in our beautiful county.


It goes without saying that a trip to Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without a surfing lesson.  Our coaches will take you through all you need to know to get you up and riding.  You’ll be surfing the incredible waves of Cornwall, like a pro, in no time.


The Camel Trail passes some of Cornwall’s most beautiful countryside.  It covers almost 18 miles in total, however, you can join the trail in different locations. The most popular being Wadebridge to Padstow, where you can stop in the historic fishing village.  You can refuel with fish and chips from the world-renowned chef Rick Stein or pick up a pasty from the numerous bakeries.  There are shopping possibilities with the boutique style shops, and it’s a short walk along the estuary to more beautiful beaches.  If you don’t have your own bike, you can hire one from Wadebridge.


The Eden Project is a large global garden housed in tropical biomes that nestle in a crater the size of 30 football pitches.

Experience the sights, smells and scale of the rainforests in the Rainforest Biome – the world’s largest greenhouse – and discover the tropical plants that are used to produce everyday products. Travel to South Africa and California, as you stroll through the orange and lemon trees, olive groves and vines of the Mediterranean Biome, and in the 30-acre Outdoor Garden see hemp, sunflowers and plants that could change your future, thriving under the Cornish sun.


Immerse yourself in history, myths and stunning scenery at Tintagel Castle set high on Cornwall’s rugged north coast between Padstow and Bude.  Inextricably linked with the legend of King Arthur, for centuries this dramatic castle and coastline have fired the imaginations of writers, artists and even the brother of a king. Now it’s your turn to be inspired.


Well, it would be rude not to have a delicious cream tea whilst in Cornwall.  Bude itself has an abundance of cafes renowned for their cream teas.  Why not take a walk along the coast path from Bude to Northcott Mouth and pop in to see Bude’s famous Margaret at her very quaint tea rooms.  Sit and have a mug of tea surrounded by her beautiful gardens and partake in her amazing cream teas.  You won’t be disappointed.  But remember….. jam first, THEN cream, its the Cornish way.
