Romantic Autumn Breaks

This Autumn why not enjoy a relaxing and romantic break in Cornwall with our guide to the top things to do with your loved one.

Discover the Tamar Valley

The River Tamar divides Cornwall from the rest of England for all but three miles between the source and the north Cornish coast. It runs for 60 miles down to Plymouth Sound, winding its way through rich farmland and areas of industrial history, now with World Heritage Status. Much of the area is also part of the Tamar Valley AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

Let’s Visit Cornwall’s Webcams

In these difficult days we have been spending more time on-line dreaming about where we would rather be than at home. Even for those of us based in Cornwall, we have been limited to where we can go until recently.

Which is why webcams have become so popular. I for one, had my second screen fixed on Mullion Cove for a few weeks at the start of lockdown, watching the tide roll out and roll in, the sun catching the island, or setting behind it, the occasional dog walker joining the lonely gull on the beach.

What's Open

Most attractions in Cornwall are now open, in one form or another.... We will not be adding anymore attractions to this list and would ask you to visit our See & Do pages HERE. Most places will expect you to book beforehand, and as we advise, Think-Plan-Book-Enjoy.

Most Art Galleries throughout Cornwall have reopened, including the Tate St Ives. As we head into autumn, these provide a great wet weather attraction with a wide variety of styles to be seen around the county.

Literary Gems set in Cornwall

Looking for a good book to lose yourself in? One that will take you off to Cornwall, have you walking deserted beaches, exploring wooded creeks or stepping back in time....

Adrenalin filled attraction near Falmouth

A new attraction opens on the outskirts of Penryn this weekend bringing a touch of Italy to West Cornwall. Originating in the Alps during World War I to enable troops to cross mountains, a Via Ferrata is a climbing route like no other. Metal steps, ladders, suspension bridges and zip wires make it one of the most adrenaline-filled climbing activities worldwide, and now you can do it in a quarry near you!
