Summer now feels like a distant memory; the tan has faded, the flip flops have retreated to the back of the wardrobe and you are reluctantly pulling on your Autumnal knits to defend yourself from the cold.
But Cornwall isn’t just for summer my friends. Oh no. Believe it or not, we’re here all year round! We know!!! Crazy!
So head on down to our neck of the woods and if you’re wondering where to spend some time, might we suggest Newquay? You won’t be disappointed.
Here’s our top five things to do in Newquay this autumn.
1) Hit the Arcades.
Many of you may worry about wasting precious sunshine hours during summer in the arcade but this time of year when the skies are grey it’s a great way to bring a bit of pizazz to your day!
Grab a cup full of 2ps and start feeding that machine, whack a mole on the head with a mallet, spend your life savings trying to win on the grab machines but most importantly have right old laugh!
2) Head to the Pirate Quest.
Tucked off a side street in the heart of Newquay, the Pirate Quest is an adventure with real life Pirates (ok, they are actors) who lead you through their forgotten world and share plenty of seafaring tales and a fair few interesting historical facts. You’ll love it and it’s a perfect way to escape a downpour too!
3. Chill to your core at Fistral Beach.
Grab a blanket or two, sip a hot chocolate and sit on the sands of Fistral beach – or one of the near by bars – and watch the sun set. Watch the brave surfers folic in the waves and let the warm fuzziness hug your soul.
4. Walk the Walk.
This is the perfect way to work up an appetite if nothing else. Yes you will need a coat and yes a hat and scarf will also come in useful but once your are wrapped up this stretch of coast line is breathtakingly beautiful and we promise it will be worth it. It’s theone of themost photographed stretches of Cornish coast. We suggest starting at Porth Mear, above Pentire steps beach to the iconic stacks at Bedruthan steps.

5. Get in touch with your inner animal at Newquay Zoo.
Set inside the gardens of Trenance park with plenty of exotic species to discover Newquay Zoo is a brilliant way to make some memories with the famalam. It may not be big but one of our faves is this preying mantis! She’s a bit of a man eater by all accounts!
