Shopping Newquay

I am staying at the Beresford Hotel next weekend, but need to get some Christmas shopping done.

Is there a large shopping centre in walking distance of the hotel?

Hi hermij. Im afraid Newquay is only a small town. We do not have a shopping centre as such. The Beresford is only about five mins walk from the centre of town.

In the town, you have, Boots, Superdrug,D2, QS, A few clothes shops & of course the touristy & surf shops.

I assume you are coming by coach,you could get a bus in to Truro,from the bus stop straight across from the Hotel. Could be a nice day out. Truro is a large town centre with lots of variety.

Hope this has been useful & you have a wonderfull time.

Agree with LillyNewquay-Truro is your best bet or Plymouth is another idea too.

Agree with Lily and would choose Truro over Plymouth for a visitor to the area as you will find some smaller, more interesting shops than the chain stores you find in any large town.

Thanks for your prompt reply most appreciated.

I don't suppose you would know if there is a pub in walking distance that shows live football to keep him quiet while I go shopping.

Hi again, Hubby will be spoilt for choice. All the pubs show the sports, the nearest being Buzios. If you are of the more mature generation, I would sugest the Central Bar, mixed age groups, young & mature.
