Things to do

The Royal Cornwall Show

For a holiday with a difference, visit Cornwall in early June for a trip to the Royal Cornwall Show. At the county showground in Wadebridge, the Royal Cornwall show is fun for all the family.

Across the weekend, farmers and breeders bring their livestock out to show. Ponies, horses, cows, sheep all make an appearance.

We visit the show every year and love to chat with all of Cornwall's local businesses. We might even have a go on the fair this year.

The swinging chairs are always a hit at the Royal Cornwall.

Finally, one of our favourite parts of the event is the annual dog show.

An annual event attracting loads of people from around Cornwall and beyond, this is a great showcase of the best Cornish produce, people, livestock and dogs. Well worth planning a weekend break to experience a huge event in Cornwall's social calendar.

Stay nearby in Wadebridge.
