What You Will Find
Bude is a place where if you haven’t actually visited, you have almost certainly heard of.
Located on the rugged North Cornish coast, surrounded by some of the most dramatic and yet fantastic land and seascapes in the UK, the jewel in the crown for Bude must be the long golden sand beaches combined with the world class surf, both of which can be found in abundance within a short distance of the town.
The beaches are just a small insight into what Bude has to offer. For such a small town it packs a mighty punch. Some of our countries best athletes have originated from Bude, which is no surprise as behind the scenes the town is alive and vibrant, full of sporting ability and the great outdoors spirit. The town certainly knows how to enjoy itself!
England’s rugby captain Phil Vickery and England’s (London Wasps) Dan Ward Smith are just two recent players to originate from Bude schools and rugby teams.
It comes as no surprise that due to Bude having some of the best surf, surfing beaches and point/reef breaks in Europe, possibly even the WORLD that Bude would produce so many champions. Former world surf Kayaking champion Simon Hammond originates lives and works in Bude, as does former English, British and European Surf champion Mike Raven. European surf champion Reubyn Ash (Billabong team member) and his brother former English national surf champion Joss Ash both originate from Bude. With one of the oldest and best established surf life savings clubs in the country (since 1953) Bude will certainly continue to produce surfing champions.
It not all on the water though. Bude has produced many other recent sporting stars. From British team Triathlon members to former womens masters British mountain bike champion. The youth teams in all sports continue to grow in strength and the town is certainly much more than a cream teas and ice cream resort.
The Ultimate Weekend is proud to present Bude as its home (possibly the best town in Cornwall) although we are all slightly bias and looks forward to hosting you in one of the countries most vibrant and biggest of small towns.
