Join our included excursion to Newquay and Truro today. Newquay is the most popular seaside resort in Cornwall, famous for Fistral Beach which hosts international surfing and watersports competitions. The town itself is filled with attractions and you will have time to explore and pick up some souvenirs.

On the way back from Newquay, we will stop at the capital of Cornwall, Truro. Built at the turn of the century, Truro Cathedral dominates the skyline with its 250 foot-high towers and has some interesting Victorian stained glass windows. The streets around the Cathedral are lined with the very best of Cornish craft shops and locally-made goods that Cornwall is renowned for. This is also the very spot to find lots of those Cornish delicacies to take back home!
