Are you tired of snappy seagulls attacking you and your pasty? Perhaps it’s time to push out the boat! A wildlife safari boat, that is!! Have you thought about booking a sea safari to spot dolphins, whales, basking sharks, seals and all kinds of seabirds? June is one of the best months for wildlife watching. At this time of year there’s a bounty of birdlife to see all around Cornwall, especially along the coast, whether walking our coastal paths, out on a sea kayak or on a Sea Safari. It is the best time of year to see Puffins on the cliffs around the Rumps and Mouls Island near Polzeath too. There’s also a better chance of spotting sunfish, dolphins and basking sharks. To experience a marine wildlife adventure of a lifetime, hop on board a wildlife boat trip from Padstow, Falmouth or Penzance to increase your chances of spotting these beautiful marine creatures.

Under the Stars

The night sky is always changing with the seasons and phases of the moon.

To get the most out of your stargazing experience you’re after as dark a night sky as possible before the moon is full. This means that these areas are free enough from light pollution to stargaze with the naked eye. Dark Sky Discovery Sites are only awarded to locations that are accessible and free enough from light pollution to be able to view the Milky Way. Best spots for Stargazing during your Elopement in Cornwall

Steps and beyond. There is a National Trust car park and the sky can be enjoyed fully from the

nearby grassy picnic area, making it super accessible and great for kids.

A plate full of Cornish Pasty for an elopement in Cornwall

the cornish pasty

Surveys have shown that one of the top three reasons people visit Cornwall is the food. The Cornish pasty is the food most associated with Cornwall. Cornish folks joke that the pastry on a good pasty should be strong enough to withstand a drop down a mine shaft. The barley flour that was often used makes hard, heavy, dense pastry. In the tin mines of Cornwall, pasties were associated with knockers . These spirits were said to create a knocking sound that was supposed to indicate the location of rich veins of ore or to warn of an impending tunnel collapse. To encourage the good will of the knockers, miners would leave a small part of the pasty within the mine for them to eat. Sailors and fishermen would throw a crust into the water to appease the spirits of dead mariners, though fishermen believed that it was bad luck to take a pasty aboard ship. A Cornish proverb, emphasised the great variety of ingredients that were used in pasties by saying that the devil would not come into Cornwall for fear of ending up as a filling in one. Nowadays, you can still find a Pasty in many varied flavours, something to suit everyone's taste. The world's largest Cornish pasty was made in August 2010, measuring 4.6 metres (15 ft) and weighing 860 kilograms (1,900 lb).
