Things to Do

Fine wine lovers won't want to miss a visit to the award-winning Camel Valley Vineyard with on-site wine shop and friendly tours including wine sipping tasters on the sun terrace. Camelford has fascinating links with Arthurian legend - some even think Camelford might be the original Camelot? Find out more at The Arthurian Centre in Slaughterbridge with legend and myth exhibition. Head off along the Camel Trail, a disused railway track open to walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The Copper Trail, a 60 mile circular walking route running around the edge of Bodmin Moor passes through Camelford and the South West Coast Path is within easy reach.

Visit the North Cornwall Museum in Camelford housed in a character building formerly used for storing coaches and wagons. The museum includes a reconstruction of a moorland village as it would have been at the turn of the century. Camelford also features the Cornwall at War Museum located at Davidstow Airfield.

Vintage aircraft, an air raid shelter and wartime shop display are just a few of the exhibits.
