Things to do in North Cornwall in Spring 2020

Boscastle Walking Week 19-24 April

 Local guides take you on a range of walks along the coastline or amid woods and along streams. This part of Cornwall is spectacularly beautiful in Spring, carpeted with primroses and gorse, while the hedgerows are white with clouds of blossom.

Walks include:

  • Tamar Lakes and Bude Canal.
  • Crackington Haven to Boscastle
  • Pentireglaze to Polzeath via The Rumps
  • Camelford to Advent Church

The schedule includes evening events like a welcome dinner and a fish and chip supper with a quiz.

Each walk costs £6 and some are dog friendly. More details here.

Trelawny Shout for St Piran’s Day, 5 March

The 5th of March is the day of St Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall. To celebrate, it’s hoped 20,000 people will gather across the duchy at 9pm to sing Trelawny, the unofficial Cornish “national anthem”.

One of the venues already signed up to host a Trelawny Shout is The Cobweb Inn in Boscastle harbour, a wonderful traditional pub.

Brush up on your Trelawny lyrics here.
