Area & Heritage: Towns & Villages


Bude has been welcoming visitors since Victorian times. The charm and atmosphere of a traditional seaside resort are retained in harmony with modern services and facilities to satisfy today's discerning visitor.

The town is situated on the Atlantic Heritage Coast of Cornwall, adjacent to fine sandy beaches, and on the South West Coastal Path. Bude and nearby beaches provide some of the finest surfing to be had in all England; most beaches have lifeguard cover during the Summer months.

The town has excellent facilities with an interesting selection of shops, a large supermarket, and recreational activities, including a modern indoor heated swimming pool. A few minutes walk from the town centre and you can be exploring the dramatic scenery of the South West Coastal Path, or discovering the famous Bude Canal, an engineering feat of the early 19th century, or walking in some of the most unspoilt rural areas to be found in the South West.
