Description

A selection of 157 colour images with useful tourist information including free things to see and do in Beautiful Bude! Great Beaches, History and Awesome Rocks: A charming family seaside resort in South-West England UK - one of the sunniest places in the country and named as The Best UK Coastal Resort by The British Travel Awards in 2015. An evidence-based, investigative approach focuses on Bude's main beaches and its fascinating geology of international reputation. Bude Harbour and the history of The Port of Bude are also examined in detail highlighting the important role that Bude Canal has played in Bude's growth of trade in the 18th and 19th centuries and in its later regeneration of Bude's travel and tourism industry. The arrival of the railway at the end of the Victorian period in the late 19th century was especially important as it brought rapid growth to the popular health and seaside/surfing destination. The Bude community has continued to preserve, conserve and thereby enhance its environment by for example, local nature reserves - a bird-watcher, twitcher-paradise! Whilst fishermen enjoy coarse fishing [bass, bream, carp, roach, rudd, and trout] and sea fishing [dogfish, mackerel, mullet, pollack and thornback ray.] The Bude coastal area continues adapting to the changing demands of tourism by its good mixture of independent shops, attractions, parkland and public services and by the provision of sensitively located, good quality self-catering accommodation. Bude is easily accessed from London by Motorway and A class road: M4 > M5 > A39 [Atlantic Highway] > A3072 or by train to Barnstaple and then by A39 to Bude.
