With our Cornish roots, it is no surprise that the team at Weird Fish love to travel. Travelling across the great British coastline is what our clothes are designed for from our warm and cosy fleece jackets to our organic cotton summer shorts, whatever the season we are prepared for the unpredictable British weather.
We have put together a list of our favourite coastal locations to visit in the UK for you to enjoy, any time of year in your Weird Fish gear!
Surfers Paradise – Newquay, Cornwall.
Cornwall is a vast and plentiful place to visit that truly has something for all the family. If you’re into surfing of any kind Newquay is the place to be, specifically, Fistral Beach. One of the most popular surf spots in the UK, Fistral Beach is home to a range of surf competitions and festivals, it is hailed as the birth place of surfing in Britain.
Every summer in Newquay, Cornwall, the Board Masters festival takes place at Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay. One of the best places to see all your favourite musicians play, the five day festival has stunning views and a lot of entertainment from the live music to BMX, surfing and skating competitions.
You can also come and pay us a visit at our Newquay Weird Fish clothing store.
Newquay is great to visit for birdwatching and exploring local wildlife. Weird Fish is partnered with the RSPB wildlife charity, you can find out more about their fantastic work and our partnership here.
Why not give our Bird Feeder tutorial a try? It is a great activity to do with children and helps encourage new wildlife into your garden!
Casual and Coastal – Woolacombe, Devon.
One of our favourite places to visit for a relaxing time at the beach is Woolacombe in Devon. Another popular surf spot, Woolacombe is great for those with a sense of adventure! From riding stables, surf schools, hiking routes and more casual walks along the beach, there are plenty of memories to be made if you choose to visit Woolacombe.
Family Fun – Torquay, Devon.
Another location in Devon we would recommend visiting is Torquay. A classic British holiday destination, Torquay boasts beautiful beaches, such as Oddicombe Beach and Meadfoot Beach that both feature stunning views and coastal paths. Perfect for a hike in the sunshine or a winter walk in your favourite Weird Fish styles.
If you’re into your history, there is plenty to do. One of our favourite and arguably one of the most unique places you can visit in Torquay is the Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves. Step into the Stone Age and travel back in time, explore the caves that housed our ancient ancestors, the caves were formed over 2.5 million years ago – crazy, right!? This is a great place to visit with children, after your tour of the caves you can take part in a woodland trail, designed for children of all ages.
A great place to visit if you’re a history buff is the Torquay Museum which was founded in 1844 by the Torquay Natural History Society.
