​Five unmissable places to visit in Cornwall this Summer!

Cornwall is a county in the southwest of England that’s famous for its spectacular coastline and its unusually good weather. As you might imagine, the two above facts combine to make Cornwall an exceedingly popular destination for English people looking to enjoy a no-fly holiday! But is it worth the hype? Absolutely!

Read on to discover five unmissable places to visit Cornwall.

St Ives

One of the best places to visit in Cornwall is the beautiful seaside town of St Ives. Whilst in the summer St Ives is a popular spot, it doesn’t lose its charm or beauty. You’ll be greeted with a beautiful bay, sailing boats bobbing in the sea, and sea lions swimming in the clear waters. St Ives has some of the best fish and chip shops I’ve been to, and is also home to the Tate St Ives art gallery.

St Michael’s Mount

St Michael’s Mount is one of Cornwall’s most iconic places to visit. This majestic tidal island is set out at sea and looks like a magical place from a fantasy book. When the tide is out, you can walk straight across the wet sand to see the parish built on the island.

Tintagel Castle

Another magical destination in Cornwall are the castle ruins of Tintagel. Tintagel Castle, set high on the cliff-tops above the rough sea below, is thought to be the birthplace of King Arthur. One of the caves is rumoured to be the home of the wizard Merlin. Stop by a little Cornish pasty shop on your way through the village.

Falmouth

Falmouth is a Cornish coastal town known for its deep natural harbour and really nice coffee shops.

Padstow

Padstow is one of the top destinations in Cornwall for food-lovers, and is famously home to restaurants owned by the chef, Rick Stein. The charming fishing port and close-by sandy beach make for a perfect day-trip in Cornwall.

​Looking for things to do in Bangor, Wales?

Saturday, 7th May 2022

Situated on the north coast of Wales along the Menai Straits, Bangor is in a wonderful setting. With views of the Isle of Anglesey and the Menai Suspension Bridge in one direction, and Snowdonia’s towering peaks in the other, this friendly coastal city packs a powerful scenic punch. The history of Bangor is an interesting one -  Bangor’s origins lie in the early 6th century, when Saint Deiniol founded a monastery on the city’s present-day site. It’s believed the name Bangor, an ancient Welsh word meaning ‘wall’, may have originated from the wattle-style enclosure that ringed the monastery.
