Eat Cornish

From digging out your change to buy eggs on a winding country lane to splashing out on fish fresh off the boat, it’s easy to enjoy the very best local food here.

Try ice cream from Roskilly’s or one of the excellent local pasties for a traditional taste of Cornwall. And expect the unexpected too, with surprises including the new superfood from The Cornish Seaweed Company and small-batch spirits from Curio in Mullion, including Rock Samphire Gin and Cardamom Vodka.

Enjoy a market

Seasonal craft markets can be found in many towns and villages, including Porthleven where you’ll find delights from handcrafted silver jewellery to vintage and driftwood furniture.

Flex your artistic license

Potters. Painters. Printers. Inspired by the untamed natural landscape and the abundance of light and colour here, artists have flocked to set up studios and galleries in the villages and lanes of the Lizard.

Browse or buy at permanent and pop-up exhibitions in old lifeboat houses and stable yards.
