Cornish bucket list for 2019
Today’s post is all about my 2019 Cornish bucket list! Now a lot of you may know that I have lived in Cornwall my whole life. However, there is so much to see and do that even someone who has lived here for 22 years hasn’t done it all! So I’ve collated a list of places and events I would like to experience in 2019. Maybe this can give you some ideas if your just visiting this beautiful county on holiday or, if like me a local who hasn’t heard or been to any of these places.
So without further a do lets get into my Cornish bucket list!
1. Watch a play at the Minack Theatre.
I have visited Porthcurno and the Minack Theatre a few times but have never actually seen a play there! The Minack Theatre is quite a drive away from me and because it’s open air I would need to try and pick a really good day. Nonetheless it’s a stunning location and I could imagine watching a play such as the Tempest would be a magical experience. You can find Minack’s 2019 season list here.
2. Take a trip down the River Fal.
This is meant to be a beautiful boat trip that I know a lot of people, even my parents have done. However I have never got around to doing it myself. The Enterprise boat goes from Truro to Falmouth calling at Trelissick on the way. This one will have to wait until the Spring as it has stopped running through the Winter. However, the River Fal company offer other boat trips all year round. One being the St Mawes – Falmouth ferry, which again I still haven’t done! I will leave a link here, where you can find out more information.
3. Zip Wire above the Eden Project Biomes.
Every time I visit the Eden Project I see people zip wiring above the biomes and it looks like so much fun! I have never done anything like it before so it should be interesting to see if I actually like it or not! haha. It’s meant to be England’s longest and fastest zip wire covering 660 metres and travelling at speeds of 60mph! However, if that isn’t for you Eden has to offer other ‘adventure activities’ which I will link here. But if that doesn’t tickle your fancy and you’ve never been to the Eden Project than you must visit. I will leave a link to review of their newest exhibition, invisible worlds here.
4. Go to Boardmasters.
Shock horror I know right, I have never been to Boardmasters. Well actually any proper camping type festival! I was suppose to go to Boardmasters back in what I think was 2013 but, unfortunately there was a mini hurricane the night before I was suppose to go and it got cancelled the next day!
This year I will definitely wanting to be going as I failed to get Glastonbury tickets and Florence and The Machine have been announced to play! I will leave a link here for all of the other acts that have been announced so far!
5. Paddle board or kayak around St Michaels Mount.
I have visited St Michaels Mount a handful times and it is definitely a must see. However, last summer when I visited with my Mum in the heatwave I saw many people paddle boarding and kayaking around the castle and it looked amazing. When we were in the castle we got speaking to a National Trust employee and as we were talking she was alerted that there was an Orca swimming off of the mount, how incredible?! We all peered out of the castle window but unfortunately couldn’t see anything. I will link my blog post on St Michaels Mount here in case you were interested.
Lots of love, Melissa x
