Perched on the edge of the River Camel estuary, this pretty market town in North Cornwall is great for walking, cycling and foodie holidays, and perfect for discovering beautiful beaches and trying out some watersports.
The Camel Trail
Connecting Wadebridge, Padstow and Bodmin, this scenic cycling trail has been created on the old railway line. The whole trail is 18 miles long and it's all traffic-free and quite level. Hire bikes in Wadebridge and cycle 5.5 miles alongside the estuary to Padstow, or 5.75 miles through countryside and woodland to Bodmin. From Bodmin, you can then cycle just over 6 miles to Wenfordbridge.
Wadebridge is home to Saints Way, a 16 mile cross country walking route, forged in ancient times by Celtic saints between Padstow and Fowey.

Gool Perran Lowen - Happy St Piran's Day in Cornish!
St Piran's Day, celebrated on March 5th, is the national day of Cornwall, named after one of Cornwall's patron saints. According to legend, St Piran, a 5th century Irish Abbot, was thrown into the sea in Ireland tied to a mill stone; somehow he washed up on the Cornish coast still alive. He made Cornwall his new home and became the patron saint of tin-miners after rediscovering tin smelting.
Today, Cornwall still celebrates his heritage. On the closest Sunday to St Piran's day, Perranorth hosts one of the largest St Piran's celebrations. Held at the dunes on Perranporth, a play is performed to re-enact St Piran's life. Spectators are welcomed and encouraged to dress in black, white and gold, the colours of Cornwall.
Other celebrations will be held in various locations across Cornwall.
