What makes Bude so special?

Bude has beautiful beaches, the historic seapool, quaint shops, walks along the canal... the list goes on!

Not forgetting the infamous tunnel, outside a supermarket, where visitors have flocked to take selfies!

Describing its beaches, Visit Cornwall says: "Perfect for long summer days, building sandcastles or getting in some surf lessons and in winter, battling against the breeze walking the dog".
