A Guide to Visiting Cornwall

Cornwall has always been one of the most visited places in England. While transportation in Cornwall is fairly good, it is advisable to organize car hire at Newquay Airport as there is so much to see that is off the beaten track. The two Newquay Airport car hire companies situated just outside the terminal are Europcar and Hertz. Alternative means of getting to accommodation include Newquay Airport transfers, where a driver will meet you in Newquay Airport arrivals; and the Newquay Airport taxis or buses, which run roughly every 30 minutes and take about 25 minutes to get to Newquay town center.

Cornwall is seen by many as the first choice for a holiday destination in the South West of the UK. This could be due to the county’s far southern location, favourable weather conditions compared to the rest of the country.

There’s lots of activieties to keep you busy. Land’s End, Britain’s most south-westerly spot, has great views and there’s also St. Michael’s Mount, an impressive old monastery which is cut off from the mainland at high tide. The Minack Theater, near Porthcurno, is an incredible open-air theater perched on the edge of a cliff, which has performances from May through September. In Corwall, you will also be able to explore lots of little villages and St. Ives, Mousehole, Cadgwith, Polperro, and Fowey are among the most beautiful sites in England. Art lovers should not miss the Leach Pottery, Barbara Hepworth Museum and St. Ives Tate.

If you fancy a hike, then Bodmin Moor is a bleak but imposing heath with bogs and high tors. On the edge is Launceston with its castle, and the Jamaica Inn (as in Daphne du Maurier’s famous novel) in Bolventor is great spot for an atmospheric evening drink.

Cornwall also has some great casinos to visit if you wish to have fun placing the odd bet or two, a few that come to mind are the Grand Casino Amusements Arcade, Eight Bet and Casino Launderette.
