Over 100 Things to do and Places to go in Cornwall

 

This post is a list of places to go for days out in Cornwall. Where there is a website I have linked to it, so all you need to do is click on the name of the place and it will take you to the website. Hopefully this will come in handy for anyone visiting Cornwall on holiday and looking for things to do.

If we have been there before and I’ve written a post about it, then I have also linked to that post next to the names of the places.

    Hi Stevie,
    Great places with a full range of interests. If someone wants a tour around and not miss the sights then Finesse Chauffeurs can help. We can also provide travel down from anywhere in the country.

    Oh wow so many places to visit! I reckon Cornwall is deserving of multiple trips! Why does it have to be so far to drive to?

    • 8 April 2017 / 8:11 pm

      Ha everywhere is far for us to drive from down here ;) There are so many places to go down here and this list doesn’t even include all the beaches and places to eat etc.
