Wadebridge is an ancient market town, centred on the old 17 arch stone bridge which dates from 1485.  Always a bustling town Wadebridge has had to adapt to modern times and in recent years has come to offer an alternative shopping venue to the  supermarkets, the town having been part pedestrianised with individual and varied shops; craft shops, specialist bakeries, niche shopping, second hand bookshops and the like. A wide selection of country style Inns, restaurants and cafes- often with outdoor seating spilling over onto the pavements. The new Tourist Office, a few minutes stroll from the centre of the town, is probably the first place to visit.  Then proceed to the old bridge and enjoy the river view.  Then walk over to Molesworth Street, the main shpping street.  From this street there are little side streets leading to small shopping arcades. For the energetic, just a few minutes stroll from the centre of the town, is the starting point of  Cornwall's top tourist attraction The Camel Trail (miles of cycle paths). At the entrance there is reasonably priced bike hire.
