If you’re seeking a fun filled family holiday in the UK then boarding one of the many trains to Cornwall could start your adventure. The much loved region is one of Britain’s gems and a fab place to visit. Here are some great reasons why we think it’s worth heading to, whether for a short break, or a little longer.
The Cornish coast is blessed with some truly stunning beaches, so whether you’re looking to surf, swim or relax you’ll find somewhere to do just that. Some of the finest beaches are located in Newquay, which lies on the north coast. Arguably the finest beach in this area is surfers’ favourite – the 2,460 ft long Fistral, although others include Mawgan Porth – which is a good spot for those wanting to dodge some of the crowds but still be in a location that offers plenty of nearby conveniences. Of course, there are many more to choose from, so have a think about where you’d most like to stay and find out what beaches are nearby.
Whatever your age you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy in Cornwall. Adults could stop off for a pint or two at the famous St Austell brewery, which is set in a Victorian building. It gives you the chance to try a number of beers on site and even take some away with you. Meanwhile, kids will love east Cornwall’s Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape world heritage site.
You don’t need to travel far in Cornwall to find natural beauty, as you’ll find it just around the corner when you step out of any Cornwall train station. However, some sights are well worth going the extra mile to see. How about taking a stroll alongside the South West Coast path? In Cornwall alone this runs for 300 miles and offers fantastic views of some of the most exceptional scenery to be found anywhere in the world. Walks are available to suit everyone from beginners to pros, so you’re sure to find somewhere to suit you.
