Don’t tell the other months, but May is definitely the best month to visit Cornwall. Except for September, maybe… This first full month of spring always brings the good weather to Cornwall and May Day and other traditional celebrations abound. Many of the month’s events involve music, folklore, art and literature and of course any excuse for a drink and a dance! The winter swells have given way to the (usually) well lined-up waves of spring, so although the water is not at its warmest, it’s a great time for surf! Spring wildflowers are in abundance and the great gardens of Cornwall, like Heligan, Trebah or Enys, are resplendent with their carpets of blooms.
