I visited the charming town of Padstow on Monday 28th of December 2015 and today I am sharing some of the photos I took whilst exploring. Some of you may have also seen my earlier posts here on Travel Tales and my Photography Blog.
Faces on Friday The National Lobster Hatchery ABC Wednesday
Traditionally a fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall, England, situated on the west bank of the River Camel estuary approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) northwest of Wadebridge, 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Bodmin and 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Newquay.
Padstow is a popular tourist destination. Although some of its former fishing fleet remains, it is mainly a yachting haven on a dramatic coastline with few easily navigable harbours. The influence of restaurateur Rick Stein can be seen in the port, and tourists travel from long distances to eat at his restaurant and cafés.
I loved the atmosphere in the town with the busy harbour and quaint streets. There are more photos which I will be sharing on the photography blog in the coming weeks.
With thanks to the following websites, where you can find out more about this beautiful Cornish village.
