Historically, Bude’s Lower Wharf was constructed to allow sailing vessels into the Lower Basin. Back in 1923 the area was a hive of activity as people went about their daily business from the surrounding warehouses that supported the workings of the Bude Canal. Today, the use of the buildings may have changed, but the Lower Wharf area is still a buzz with people who now enjoy the delicious food both on and off the water from the many cafes and restaurants. Designer makers demonstrate their craft skills and sell beautiful handmade gifts or if you’re feeling energetic you can hire a rowing boat or pedalo and take to the water.
