Memories are made here in the South West: classic coastline, tropical gardens, iconic monuments and the great outdoors.
This is a great time of year for long walks in the crisp air and frosted landscapes, or to warm up in cosy tea-rooms offering delicious food.
Take a look at our events page to see the wide range of things you can do.

This year is all about the South West coast.

Spring flowers are starting to appear all across the South West. There are carpets of white snowdrops, purple crocuses and yellow aconites to spot amongst many other colourful signs of spring.
The results from our annual Valentine's Day flower count this year indicate flowers are blooming earlier than last year, we've got 17% more blooms in the South West than we did this time last year.
