Newquay, a popular visitor destination in S.W. England

(Above image is a capture of Newquay Fish Festival 2019.)

This evening, I am providing a wrap-up of Newquay in north Cornwall, England following our recent visit there for best part of a week.

Newquay is mainly orientated towards domestic, U.K. visitors who are attracted by the sandy beaches, wide range of activities and, generally, benign weather conditions.

Newquay Harbour 

The town can be accessed by road, rail, bus and air.

Newquay is probably the premier surfing destination in the U.K.. Additionally, there are a wide range of other activities and visitor attractions including: aquarium, zoo,hiking, cycling, photography, fishing, tennis, golf, coasteering, riding, kayaking and go karting.

Visitors are accommodated via a wide range of hotels and b&b type establishments. The town has a long-standing sea fishing industry as a consequence of which sea food is widely available.

Fistral Beach, popular with surfers.
