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.

Best places in Cornwall to go in winter

A trip down to the South West out of season is not as unusual as you may think. In fact, contrary to popular belief, a lot of places stay open all year round – after all, the locals still need entertaining! The pros for venturing to Cornwall far outweigh the cons, and even if the weather is chilly, it’s (on average) warmer than anywhere else in England! Here's why you should visit this winter...

A local's guide to Port Isaac

An enchanting little village on the rugged north coast of Cornwall, Port Isaac is home to Doc Martin, the endearingly named 'squeezy belly alley' and a maze of narrow streets inviting you to explore.

A local's guide to Bude

Bude is a very successful seaside resort in North Devon. Facing out to Atlantic Ocean it has some of the best urban surf beaches in the UK. Also head out to Widemouth Bay if you love the sea.
