    Cornwall was once described by DH Lawrence as ‘like being at a window and looking out of England’; not only is it the most southerly county in England, it also boasts the longest stretch of coastline, with almost 700 km of coastal scenery and more than 300 beaches.

    Whilst the south facing coast has a softer atmosphere, of rocky smugglers coves, the rugged northern coast of Cornwall looks out on the Atlantic, and is particularly popular with surfers. The South West Coastal Path extends from Minehead southwards along the northern coast, offering outstanding access to amazing scenery, wildlife and historical sites.

    Things to do on the North Cornwall Coast

    The wide and sandy Fistral Beach, just west of Newquay, is perhaps the best-known location in the UK for surfing and extreme sports.

    On the outskirts of Tintagel, visitors can explore the rocky outcrop and peninsula that, legend has it, is the site of King Arthur’s Castle, although the area is thought to have once been a Roman settlement, and the current visible ruins of the castle actually date from the 13th century.

    World-famous for its ice cream, crab and Cornish pasties, Cornwall is increasingly attracting fine-dining enthusiasts;   Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’ overlooking Watergate Bay, and Rick Stein’s multiple venues in Padstow, are just the most prominent establishments, but most towns can now boast excellent local restaurants, selling the very best of regional produce.

    The North Cornish Coast was once one of the main areas for metal mining; Cornwall continues to be famous for its tin mining, although the last mine (South Crofty near Redruth) closed in 1998. The iconic ruins of tin mine chimneys and wheelhouses still scatter the countryside, many of them overlooking the coast, with their underground workings leading down to the sea.

    Top Destinations

    Bude - Although Bude was once a thriving port, handling shipping from Ireland, Wales and Bristol, the local coastline has always been known to be particularly treacherous: ‘From Padstow Point to Lundy Light, is a watery grave by day or night’.

    Launceston - Known as the ‘gateway to Cornwall’, Launceston is a quintessential Cornish market town, with narrow mediaeval streets dominated by an imposing Norman castle.

    Boscastle - One of the few remaining unspoilt harbour villages in Cornwall, thanks in no small part to its ownership by the National Trust, Bude is also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    Padstow & Wadebridge - Now an epicurean centre, Padstow is situated near to the mouth of the Camel Estuary; a five mile section from Padstow to Wadebridge forms part of the Camel Trail - a fabulous place for bird-watching. The trail extends a further 12 miles towards Camelford through beautiful mixed woodland.

    Newquay - The county centre for surfing and parties, Newquay is also building a reputation for other extreme sports, such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, waveskiing and mountain boarding. Just outside the town the former USAF base now operates commercially as Newquay Cornwall Airport, connecting the county to major UK cities.

    Perranporth - The three miles of sandy beach make the town a popular family holiday destination, with the fine local Golf Club and Perranporth Aerodrome adding additional leisure opportunities.

    St Agnes - Steeped in mining history, with the famous Wheal Kitty and Polberro workings amongst those close at hand, St Agnes can also boast the last remaining tin production centre in Cornwall, utilising alluvial mining techniques. The town also offers great access for coastal walkers, with four varied beaches for holidaymakers.

    Redruth – Said to take its name from the colour of a local stream, caused by the presence of iron oxide, Redruth is overlooked by Carn Brea, a giant granite obelisk erected in 1836 in memory of a mine owner and local philanthropist, Francis Bassett. The town was also the home of inventor William Murdoch, whose house is thought to have been the first in the world to be lit by piped (coal) gas.

    St Ives – Long isolated by its coastal location towards the end of the Cornish peninsula, St Ives was ‘revealed’ to the outside world with the opening of the Great Western Railway line in 1877. An internationally renowned centre for arts, including the St Ives School of Artists in the late 1800s, and home in their time to Turner, Whistler, Virginia Woolf, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, the town is now the location of the award-winning building which houses Tate St Ives.

    Land’s End – The headland on the Penwith peninsula is the most westerly point in mainland England, and looks out towards the Isles of Scilly, some 28 miles away.
