Photograph of Bude

Whether you are looking for an activity-packed visit with lots of things to do and see, or a day away from it all with your family, Bude offers it all. It is a place where you can be as active and adventurous as you like, or simply unwind, whilst watching the Atlantic rollers sweep onto the shores.

Bude’s Canal and Marshes offer the perfect opportunity to try a spot of fishing, kayaking or gentle strolls along the accessible tow path and network of well marked walking routes. A short wander from the brand new Canal interpretation centre can take you amongst a carpet of orchids in June, or to the fully accessible bird hide to watch our native birds.
