Cornwall on Film

These days it’s not difficult to catch a glimpse of Cornwall on...

Church Cove, Gunwalloe

Cornwall is a great place to get the summer feeling early: the lighter evenings allow for more outdoor activities and al fresco eating; there are more events outside including food festivals and open-air theatre; and the crowds are yet to arrive so there is more space to explore the art galleries, museums and heritage sites.

Do you fancy watching live chef demos by the sea and tasting Cornish mussels? Or perhaps an outdoor theatre show appeals to you? You can keep up to date with Cornwall's busy event schedule here.

There's a plethora of exhibitions to see and activities to try, to suit all interests. You can discover Cornwall's interesting past by visiting a museum or world heritage site, or explore the coastal path originally used for smuggling and spot the tin mines across the coastline. 

After a full day of exploring, why not head to one of Cornwall's award-winning restaurants or pubs and enjoy local produce or fresh seafood. Alternatively, why not go for a beach BBQ or a countryside picnic? The beaches are a lot quieter at this time of year and the views are beautifully inspiring. So if you're feeling creative, why not wile away the afternoon painting, drawing, writing or taking artistic photographs? Or just unwind with a good book or watch the world go by.

You can find more inspiration below, as well as a selection of accommodation to start planning your early summer getaway!
