Your guide to Cornwall
Why should you visit?
Cornwall is a popular UK holiday destination and sets the bar high for coastal holiday.
What makes it so sought after is the fact that it has it all! You’ll find endless Sandy beaches, the most beautiful scenery, deep history, culture and architecture.
It literally caters to every type of traveller and is great for that solo, romantic or family holiday.
Best time to go?
The best time to visit Cornwall is between July and August as that’s when the water is the warmest but also the busiest. We went in April and literally had the place to ourselves which was amazing. The water was too cold to swim in but the beach walks absolutely amazing.
How to get there?
For ease of movement going by car is probably your best bet. From London is a 5 hour drive. If you prefer to fly, Flights to Cornwall land at Newquay Airport. You can also take the train or coach.
Where to stay?
Each location in Cornwall has something unique to offer.
Offers tons of world class beaches with turquoise waters, arts and galleries.
Is best for city vibes, shopping and the magnificent Truro Cathedral
Is best for Museums, Culture & History and the closest to the famous St Michael’s mount island.
Is literally the UK’s best spot for surfing and water sports
Is rich in history and home to some of the most significant events that occurred in Cornwall so definitely best if you’re interested in the history of the town.
We stayed in St Ives as it was the top recommended and it definitely did not disappoint. The beaches there are phenomenal and the likes of carbis bay, Porthminster Beach, Porthmeor Beach, St Ives Harbour beach and Hayle Towans Beach are a must see in your visit.
We found St Ives a great base for accessing the other parts of Cornwall which were mostly within a 1 hour drive.
And there were plenty accommodation options varying from hotels, holiday parks, lodges, B&B. You really are spoilt for choice.

London in the sky -cocktail experience review
If you’re looking to experience the thrill of floating above ground whilst sipping the most amazing cocktails then London in the sky must be your next stop!
It is situated right opposite North Greenwich station and once you step in you’re immediately catapulted into holiday vibes with greenery, deck chairs and the o2 up close in the background.
Make sure to stop at the London in the sky backdrop for that perfect Insta shot.
You’ll be led to the crane where you find your sit and get strapped in safely in no time and you’re ready for lift up
Once strapped in, the sky crew take over and as the crane slowly lifts you to 100ft in the sky they welcome you the most amazing party in the sky with the DJ playing non stop hits whilst the cocktails keep on coming.
Whilst in the air, the crane rotates slowly giving you birds eye view of the London skyline up close and personal.
Even though a 100 feet in the sky you feel safe. The seats are sturdy and reclinable if you dare!
I must say the staff are the real star of the show and make the experience truly unforgettable!
