Cornwall in the UK is known for being the home to legendary King Arthur. While people have other things to do, most would like to spend a day or two in Padstow. Padstow is a significant fishing port, located on the North Coast and is considered to be a great place for foodies. The restaurants here are incredible, and you can enjoy some of the best seafood here.

Things to see and do

  • Let’s start by saying that Padstow is a small place, and thereby, you don’t expect maddening crowds here, which is also the best thing about coming here. The harbor is the most important attraction here. You can spend time fishing, while the kids can enjoy catching crabs. There are quite a few restaurants here, if you are in mood for food, and there are plenty of cafes too.
  • Located on the South Quay, The National Lobster Hatchery is a good place to see. Here, the lobsters are reared and returned back to the sea.
  • You can also visit an old house called Prideaux Place at the top of Padstow.

Where to stay?

Padstow is one of the best places to enjoy the weather and sea, and hence, staying in a hotel is never a good idea. A better option is to go for self-catering services, which are quite popular. You can stay around the quaint fishing villages and enjoy great food at your private place. Harbour Holidays has some good options for visitors, but make sure that you book in advance. Also, it is a good idea to check for larger cottages before arrival, because Padstow is a small place, and you don’t want to miss the best places.

Traveling out

If you are in Cornwall, you will spend most of your time enjoying the locales, and there are many other places that you can plan around Padstow. Bude is a good getaway, where you can find some excellent beaches. Depending on the amount of time you have, you can also plan for Barnstaple, Bideford and Tiverton.
