Cornwall has a wealth of places to visit whatever the weather. On this page, we have tried to bring together some links to places to visit come rain or shine.

We have recently added a link to I WALK CORNWALL (above)
They have mapped 229 walks throughout Cornwall, ranging from 2 to 10 miles.
Each walk has a map of the route, detailed directions, photos and notes on the heritage and natural history.
The walks are classified by length, steepness grade, type of scenery (coastal, moorland, riverside etc) and, of course, whether there's a pub.
All the walks shown on their web-page, but they are also available via their guided walk mobile app - effectively a "SatNav" for walking.
Our link takes you to their web-site or you can search the App Store or Google Play for "iWalk Cornwall".
They charge a small amount to download each walk to the app (£1.99) to cover the cost of creating and maintaining the content.
The app includes one free walk (Lanhydrock Gardens) and a simulation mode so you can try out the functionality for yourself before purchasing any additional walks.
Using the GPS receiver on your phone/tablet, the app:
- Gives you directions with a beep/vibrate notification when there’s a new direction for you to follow.
- Gives you information about points of interest along the walk.
- Warns you if you wander off the walk route.
- Tells you how far to the next direction, estimates walk time remaining and monitors battery drain rate.
Once a walk is downloaded onto your phone/tablet, the app doesn’t need an internet connection whilst you do the walk.
You can look at the routes on the web-site, but we think the app is worth a look.
