There are many bus services and day trips covering the county but to get around Cornwall and see the great out of the way places a car gives you that freedom.  The main motorway to Cornwall is the M5 serving Exeter, Bristol and all points North whilst from London the choice is the mainly dual carriageway A303/A30 or the M4/M5 via Bristol.

From Exeter follow the A30 to Cornwall and Newquay is fully signposted from the A30.
