FAQ's PadstowView all
Some would say eating! And if you have the budget, you probably could, there are that many great places to eat! Or you could spend the day learning to cook with Rick Stein, though he probably won't be there.
Away from the gastro indulgences, Padstow is a nice place to just amble around, look in a few shops, take a walk out along the coastal path, or hire a bike and go up the Camel Trail?
You can learn all about lobsters, visit Prideaux House or St Petroc's Church, even catch a ferry across to Rock...
It's best known these days as the place where Rick Stein has all his restaurants, but prior to Mr Stein turning up, it was probably best known for its May Day celebrations and the Obby Oss, which dances through the busy streets from morning to night.
Visit Cornwall would hate to take sides here by saying one place is better than the other.
Padstow is best known these days for its foodie connections, though that's not to say there aren't some fine places to eat in St Ives. Padstow might not have the beaches that St Ives has but with the tide out the sandy estuary provides a wonderful place to relax in the sunshine.
St Ives possibly has more for the family than Padstow, although you can't beat sitting on the harbour catching crabs! And Padstow also has the Camel Trail, a safe flat cycle route up river to Wadebridge.
Of course, St Ives is known for it's art, and although there are a few galleries in Padstow, they can't compete with the Tate St Ives, or can they? I suppose it depends on your taste's?
