Favourite things to do in West Cornwall

I was lucky enough to grow up in West Cornwall, an absolutely beautiful part of the world and a place filled with artists, art history and fantastic galleries. I thought I’d share some snaps from a recent visit as well as some of a few tips if you are planning a trip!

Newlyn FILmhouse


A fantastic addition to the lovely town of Newlyn. This little cinema is perfect for a cosy night when the Cornish weather is blowing a gail or hailing on you! There are two screens and a fantastic cafe / restaurant with seriously yummy food.


THE Blue Bramble Gallery


Warning: if you go to this gallery you will leave with much lighter pockets! I always want to buy everything in sight and quite often have to restrain myself! Tucked away in the cobbled streets of St Ives and up a wee flight of stairs this is simply a treasure-trove of fantastic Cornish artists and makers. I’ve discovered so many fantastic creations in this gallery and always pay a visit whenever I am home. A must visit if you’re in St Ives!


Zennor Head Walk


I’ve been doing this walk since before I could walk! It’s a part of the coastal path route and just such a gorgeous place to get some perspective. Simply park in Zennor near the pub and head towards the sea. There’s a loop track or if you just fancy a short stroll you can walk to the big granite stacks and back.
