Activities in Cornwall

With so many things to do in Cornwall you won’t know where to start. Try surfing on the North coast, visit a traditional Cornish tin mine, cycle the famous Cornish Camel Trail or walk the coast path. Then when you’ve recovered with an afternoon tea, find more to do; with festivals, group activities and theatre trips. You’ll need another holiday to recover.

Here are a few suggestions for things to do in Cornwall during your trip:
