Wildlife watching in Cornwall

With miles upon miles of unspoilt coastline and range of diverse habitats, Cornwall is one of the best places in the British Isles to see marine mammals, sharks and seabirds from the land and sea. But with dozens of places around Cornwall’s coast where you can spot wildlife in action, where are the best locations to get up close and personal with the giants from the deep, or the best time of year to go birdwatching or seal spotting?

A local's guide to Polruan

An ancient fishing village with a long history of boat building, Polruan is situated on the Polperro Heritage Coast. This village in South Cornwall has a distinct charm about it with many old buildings along the quay.

A gateway to Cornwall

While Torpoint only became a town in the 19th century, the area was mentioned in the Domesday book and people have always inhabited the land along the river.

Nearby points of interest include the National Trust’s 18th century Antony House, which provides interesting historical insight of a family’s involvement in the Civil War, Trematon Castle and Gardens, and Mount Edgecombe House, home to the national collection of camellias. Take the free foot ferry over to Plymouth where you’ll find Drake Circus shopping centre, with over 60 shops, and other attractions, including the National Marine Aquarium.

If it’s the beach you’re after, the beautiful sands of Whitsand Bay are a 15-minute drive away, or there are many scenic walking routes along the coast and in the surrounding countryside.
