Cornwall is an amazing holiday destination, filled with events and activities. There really is no bad time to visit the south west – with stunning sands, gorgeous coastline and eye-watering beauty available at any time of the year. But visit in June and you can enjoy the warm welcome of summer before the crowds.
Needless to say, June is an amazing time to visit with lots of amazing events and activities to enjoy. Here are a few recommendations for great ways to spend your time outside of Landal Gwel an Mor.
Golowan Festival, Penzance 21-30 June 2019
A fantastic celebration that puts a modern spin on local heritage, Golowan’s festival once saw flaming tar barrels carried down the street. Today’s event is a more modern, and slightly safer, affair with music, fireworks, a parade and performances.
The Great Estate Festival, Redruth 31 May-2 June 2019
The Scorrier Estate offers a refined backdrop to this ‘rambunctious garden fete’ in the Cornish countryside. Headliners James enliven Saturday night, and the vintage fairground, woodland silent disco, secret gin garden, Whispering Woods and much more will keep you busy during the day.
Fal River Festival, Falmouth 24 May-2 June 2019
This 10 day festival makes great use of its stunning waterside setting to truly offer something for everyone.
