Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to your seaside escape in Newquay here in the north of Cornwall. Make your own way to your accommodation, a comfortable, centrally-located and family-run outfit that boasts great views over Towan Headland and Finstral Beach. There will be a welcome meeting at 2 pm, when you’ll meet your local host, your group, and get over overview of your upcoming itinerary. After unpacking for the next few days and settling in, join your host for a walk around the town, and get a bit of insight into the town’s history and what makes this a famous surfing destination. You might wander the harbour, hike up to the 14th century clifftop hut used to alert local fishermen to shoals of fish filling the bay, and soak up gull’s-eye views across the green and grey dotted headlands. You can follow the path of the Gannel estuary back into town, and drop into the ornamental Trenance Gardens, backed by the train line viaduct that brought Newquay to the attention of seasonal visitors in the Victorian era. This evening is free for you to find a place for dinner – your host will have suggestions on hand.
