Cornish sunrises and sunsets

It’s a savvy holidaymaker who visits Cornwall in autumn. The family hordes return to the school routine, leaving the roads mercifully free of traffic queues, the beaches quiet and with space in the car park. The sea is still warm from a summer of sunshine (one can hope) and, best of all, those fabulous sunrises happen at an hour you’d actually want to see, and you don’t have to wait up all night for a corking sunset. 

The Tin Coast

Kicking off a new series of blogs where we focus on different parts of Cornwall, we head down to the far west to explore the Tin Coast...

The Tamar Valley

Separating Cornwall from Devon (or some say England) the River Tamar rises within three miles of the north Cornish coast above Bude and flows south to enter the English Channel in Plymouth Sound.

Your Cornish sanctuary by the sea

A tale of two coasts. That’s how Charles Dickens might describe Cornwall. To the north, the mighty Atlantic: mad, bad and dangerous to know, but somehow thrilling and impossible to ignore. To the south, its more courteous cousin: the English Channel (or just “The Channel” here), less hot-headed and more genteel of manner, albeit with hidden depths. Think Ross Poldark contrasted with Nigel Havers.

Here Comes the Summer

Here comes summer, and even in this post-covid world, Cornwall is ready to welcome you with attractions and events galore. Here are ten fun things you can do with the family, to suit all pockets; prices where featured are for a two-adult family admission.

The Kernow Way

Wherever we go, and whatever we do, we have an impact. Let's make sure it’s a positive one. Do it #thekernowway. Clean Cornwall is asking Cornish residents, visitors and business owners to consider how we can all minimise our impact as we step into one of the busiest summers we've ever had.

So whether you are a local, or here on holiday.. we all have a shared responsibility to look after this special place.

We call it the Kernow Way

In Cornwall we say 'Doing it dreckly'.
