Bude


 Bude is blessed with good sandy beaches and is popular with surfers and bathers alike. Particular care should be taken however when the water is at low tide.



Bude is a popular tourist destination. There is plenty to see and do and the area is served with excellent shops, restaurants and bars. The unique sea lock and canal provides a pleasurable walking experience and Bude Museum is most definately worth a visit. The museum is situated by Bude's canal and houses collections of photographs, salvaged objects from many wrecks and a detailed history of Bude's martime past.



Bude Canal was originally built to carry sea sand to inland soil which was of poor quality. The Bude Harbour and Canal Company was formed in 1819 and the Bude Sea Lock was repaired in 2000.
