The ultimate Cornwall bucket list

As only 58% of children have ever tried a Cornish pasty, we have released the “Ultimate Bucket List for Visitors to Cornwall”. This also follows the recent news that the county has been granted minority status and the list is a celebration of all things Cornwall.

Attractions such as the Minack Theatre, The Barbara Hepworth Museum and The Eden Project are included as well as more historical treasures such as The Count House and Tintagel Castle. Alongside the attractions, traditional Cornish cuisine features heavily with eating a cream tea, sampling stargazy pie and of course, devouring a humble Cornish pasty also making the list.

With the weather forecast looking bright and a record-breaking summer being anticipated, We have also found that visitor numbers to the site have increased by 33% over the last month compared to the same period last year and the number of searches for Cornwall holidays is also up by almost 15% compared to 2013, showing that Cornwall remains a popular destination for people taking holidays in the UK.

We were shocked to hear the statistics that only 58% of children had tried a Cornish pasty and felt that this needed to be rectified. Cornwall’s heritage is part of its charm and this bucket list as a way to inform people of all that Cornwall offers. Hopefully, the weather in 2018 encourages people to tick off as many as possible.

Holidays in Cornwall

Famed for its golden beaches with turquoise seas and rolling surf, its scrumptious cream teas, fresh fish and chips and locally-brewed beer, its picturesque locations that line the coast and dot the countryside… Cornwall holidays have something for everyone. Read on for inspiration on how and where to spend your Cornish holiday, including tips for families, friends, couples and solo travellers…

Where the UK's top foods are most-loved

From the iconic fish and chips to the legendary Yorkshire pudding, the UK has plenty of tasty home-grown dishes to its name – but where in the country are they loved the most? We wanted to find out if they really love Yorkshire puddings in Yorkshire, or if everyone really goes crazy for Cornish pasties in Cornwall. We trawled through a year’s worth of social media data to get a feel for what the locals are eating.

St Ives: The UK’s ‘best seaside town’

Arguably one of the best-known Cornish holiday resorts, St Ives is a beautiful holiday destination. The perfect balance for families, couples, singles and groups of friends, visitors continue to keep returning to the area year after year. With stunning natural beauty, wonderful hospitality and excellent access to the rest of West Cornwall, we think it’s the ideal place to visit all year round.
