Things to do in North Cornwall

There's so much going on in and around North Cornwall and East Devon that we thought it would be helpful to post some of the best events on our website as a handy reference for visitors.

It's by no means a complete list but we hope you find it useful and, if you discover something that's not on the list that you think might worth mentioning for next year, please do get in touch.

Events are organised into categories on the right of the screen or you can browse the full list below.
