Staying in Cornwall for your honeymoon? Proper job! Here is a quick round-up of some of the best Cornish could dos – if you feel like it.
Walk the coastal path
We’re very lucky here in Cornwall to have a coastal path which runs the entire length of the county. Simply hop aboard anywhere near the coast and you’ll be treated to glorious views and endless fresh sea air. Plot your journey wisely to incorporate a Sunday roast or afternoon cream tea. Speaking of which…
Tuck into a cream tea
It’s the law. Just make sure you put the jam on first followed by the cream, or you’ll be chased away to Devon! You’ll be able to get a cream tea in most villages and towns during the summer months. Check out this guide to the best cream teas in Cornwall for more inspiration.
Visit a museum
Whether you’re interested in maritime or military, mining or magic, there’s a museum in this county to tickle your fancy. Make sure you check the opening times and ticketing prices before you visit, as things change season to season.
Go to a gig
If live music is your jam, you’ll be in your element in Cornwall. We have plenty of awesome live music venues and no shortage of local talent to fill them. Listen to your favourite tunes at the UK’s only bar on the beach, head to Whiskers in Newquay where there is always something lively happening or check out some of the bigger venues to see what’s on offer. The Eden Project, Hall for Cornwall and Princess Pavilion regularly host bands and artists.
Enjoy some art
Cornwall has been attracting artists to its shores since, well, forever! We have a rich and diverse history of art and it means there is truly something for everyone. Pottery fans should visit The Leach Pottery in St Ives. While you’re there, pop into the Tate Gallery. Penzance is also worth a visit for any aspiring artists or admirers. The Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange showcase some the county’s best contemporary art.
Get in the water
Take a surfing lesson, go for a kayak or just dip your feet in. There is nothing like getting in the sea to make you feel like you’re on holiday (even if it does make your toes go numb)!
As you’ve probably noticed, things run slightly slower down here. People don’t rush around and things get done dreckly. And if the sun’s out? Tomorrow. So make like a Cornish person and enjoy some quality downtime.
