Newquay Attractions

As the UK’s leading resort for outdoor pursuits, Newquay offers a fantastic array of activities and things to do come rain or shine. Outside of the Newquay, the county of Cornwall offers some fabulous tourist attractions, including the world famous Eden Project and the popular villages of Padstow and Rock, made famous for their great array of restaurants.

Throughout the year Newquay plays hosts to numerous surf competitions and music festivals. The Unleashed Music Festival, part of the Boardmasters event, at nearby Watergate bay is fast becoming one of the UK’s most prominent fixtures in the summer music festival calendar.

For those looking for adventure, the hotel sits perfectly on the North Cornish coastal path. Save some time to explore Newquay’s stunning rugged coastline and take in some of our town’s fascinating history.

Cornwall is rapidly becoming home to some of the country’s best new restaurants. The celebrity chefs Nathan Outlaw and Rick Stein can often been seen on TV promoting our great local produce. Nearer to Newquay at Watergate Bay, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Fifteen Cornwall, is currently the place to eat in the South West.

Only 25 minutes away by car, you have the beautiful cathedral city of Truro, where you’ll find an eclectic mix of stylish boutiques and major high street stores. Also nearby you have the fascinating Eden Project, the Tate Gallery at St Ives, and the National Maritime Museum at Falmouth. Closer to home, the town of Newquay itself offers a brand-new cinema complex, Cornwall’s only zoo, and the Blue Reef aquarium, just a stone’s throw from Hotel Sunnyside.

Conveniently situated just off the A30 (the major link road into the South West) and with its own international airport, Newquay is a great base for exploring the rest of Cornwall and remains busy both in and out of season.

All in all, Newquay is simply a fantastic place for either a weekend away or an extended break. The advent of cheap flights direct to Newquay from all over the UK has now made it so easy and affordable to get to. Combined with the excellent facilities and customer service courtesy of Hotel Sunnyside, it really is the place to head to this year.
