About Bude

From local walks to centuries of history, there is so much discover about Bude. This section reveals more about the town and local area, including travel advice, downloads and more.

The town itself is just made for mooching. Loaded with quirky, sun-kissed charm, you won’t find the huge chains. Instead, a buzzing hive of independent boutiques, unique bars and eateries epitomise Bude’s strong sense of local identity. Stay awhile, grab a coffee and let the world go by. Or, better still, tuck into a bowl of local mussels and watch the sunset over the dunes.

The best of Cornwall is closer than you think…

Just half an hour off the A30, and moments from the Atlantic Highway, we’re officially one of the sunniest corners of Britain. That said, even on rainy days, there are so many bright things to discover.

We can’t wait to show you around! Pack your camera, bring a smile and let the adventures roll…
