About the Town

Nestled within North Cornwall’s Camel Valley, where salt water joins fresh, is a town determined to punch above its weight. A history that starts with the simple desire to bridge a river includes being the third place in the world to have a railway line. In 2012 the Sunday Times voted us one of the top 101 places to live in the British Isles, and our vision is set on a low-carbon economy.

Visitors come from far and wide to hear the sounds of our Folk Festival , the sights of the Royal Cornwall Show, and to break their cycle journey along the Camel Trail. Today our high street boasts virtually nothing but fine independent traders and first-class provisions.

www.lovewadebridge.co.uk is our celebration of this friendly, energetic town in which we live. We wish you a very warm welcome to Wadebridge!
