A fishing town on the coast of Cornwall and the west bank of the river Camel with a harbour and quayside, narrow streets with plenty of eaters and gift shops.
A great time to visit would be on Mayday to experience the festivals, two running together one called “Obby Oss” the other ”Mayday“ there are two separate parades with drum and accordions bands marching through the narrow streets, meeting at the maypole all dressed up with greenery and flowers. In fact the whole town is dressed up with bunting everywhere to been seen, just look on, also watch the Morris dancers very different.
