In the far South West of England, lies the faraway land of Cornwall which promises tales of smugglers, rich cream teas, gorgeous gardens and world class surf.
From the 1st of April, it will be easier than ever to explore the hidden gems of Cornwall, with up to 7 flights a week from Aberdeen Airport!
When you step off your flight you may think you have landed on a Caribbean island not somewhere along the English Coast. The Gulf Stream surrounds Cornwall, bringing warm air and pleasant temperatures to the area. Palm trees thrive in this part of the world, as do plants and flowers from across the world. There are beaches, and then there are beaches in Cornwall. Some, such as Sennen and Coverack, look as though they are straight out of a catalogue for a Caribbean cruise. Walk along the 400 miles of coastal path or jump in the sea without the need for a wetsuit!
For a private island experience, head out on a boat or stray from the coastal path where you will find untouched beaches hidden at the bottom of cliffs. Cornwall is well known for the excellent surfing conditions, with surfers flocking there year-round to take advantage of the waves. Fistral – Newquay is one of the most popular surfing spots in Cornwall. Whether you’re an experience surfer ready to tackle the Cornish waves or are looking to learn how to surf at one of the many schools along the beachfront, you won’t be far from the surf.
After a day at the beach head to one of the characterful pubs scattered around the towns, coast and countryside. The pub is the heart of every Cornish village and they are always filled with good stories, Cornish banter and loud belly laughs. According to the Good Pub Guide, Cornwall is home to 636 pubs – so plenty to choose from!
With over 400 miles of Coastline, there is no surprise that seafood is on the menu at many of the major restaurants in Cornwall. More often than not the fish served up to you at a restaurant was caught that day! With Fish and Chips being the most popular dish in the area there are plenty of takeaways to choose from, however you will also be spoiled for choice with seafood restaurants serving up fancier fresh fish dishes.
Whilst visiting Cornwall one of the must see’s is the Minack Theatre – an open air theatre which has been carved out of the cliffs and often looks out to the horizon over dolphins, basking sharks and fishing boats. The theatre has a full program of drama, musicals and opera every summer, together with music, comedy and story-telling events.
Another unique attraction is the Eden Project. Dubbed the eighth wonder of the world by some the project allows you to wonder through the rainforest in two giant Biome. One with humid temperatures home to tropical plants and crops from the Oceanic Island to Malaysia and one warm temperature Biome that is home to plants that grow in the hot summers of the Mediterranean such as grape vines and olives.
