Newquay is beyond doubt Britain’s most famous seaside town, a trendy centre of clubs and pubs, music and festivals, surf and sand. It is completely geared to the visitor and home to a vibrant year-long series of events like the summer Boardmasters surf and music festival and the August Bank Holiday VW car fest ‘Run to the Sun’.
Newquay is packed with, and surrounded by, a startling array of attractions. You’re never short of things to do in this area. Pirate quests, wildlife encounters, historic homes, golf, surfing, walking, clubbing, steam trains, kids’ play centres – Newquay has the lot. It is, of course, Britain’s home of surfing: Towan, Great Western and Tolcarne beaches nearer the
town and nearby Crantock and Watergate Bay all provide high quality breaks, and Fustral is home to top international competition. Naturally, surf schools abound and cater for everybody from the complete beginner onward: if you’re going to Newquay you’ve got to give it a go. Newquay and the surrounding area also has a stunning selection of highly-regarded pubs and restaurants making the most of local produce – the town even has its own fish festival.
Towan Beach, Newquay
Running from North to South, you can traverse North Cornwall in two particularly stunning ways: walk it via the South West Coast Path or drive it via the Atlantic Highway. Whichever way, you’ll be stunned by the scenery and variety. There are surprises galore, such
as the pretty town of Camelford, a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. It is steeped in history and legend. The town has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. You won’t find many other towns in Britain sporting a golden camel weather-vane on the roof of its historic Town Hall – it’s a nod to the name of the River Camel, of course, but the name actually comes from the Cornish language: from ‘cam’, meaning crooked, ‘alan’, meaning beautiful, and ford.
Oh – and Poldark isn’t the only Cornish-based TV hero, you know: visit Port Isaac and you’ll see where Martin Clunes’s Doc Martin ministers to the poorly locals. You could even try to be grumpy for the day – but that’s not always possible in North Cornwall...
