A weekend in Cornwall

by on 18/11/2017

Dramatic scenery defines Cornwall. Being at the very south west point of England you are never far from the rugged coastline with precarious footpaths, endless views and secluded coves. This weekend trip gives student a blast of sea air and a taste of Cornish life.

Of course the food is excellent in Cornwall; you can watch the fishing boats come into harbour with their catch and try the traditional Cornish Pasty considered to be the national dish of Cornwall.

A highlight is visiting the Minack Theatre built on the edge of a cliff for outdoor performances. It is a very dramatic location for Shakespeare plays or stories about pirates.

This is quite different to our energetic and exhilarating weekend in Cornwall learning to surf
