Wet Britain: Cornwall

Wet Britain: Cornwall is the essential mini-guide to weatherproof your holidays. Inside, you'll find details of over 50 all-weather attractions, along with listings of cinemas, leisure centres, kids' indoor play zones and even activities that are fun in the rain, like surfing and coasteering!

With June 2012 recorded as the wettest since records began in 1910, and the rain set to continue throughout the summer, there's no reason why you should let the weather dampen your holiday spirits.

"Cornwall has a dazzling range of all-weather attractions," says author William Gray. "You can venture into an undercover jungle at the Eden Project, ogle sharks at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium or admire fine art at the Tate St Ives. Tin mines, maritime museums, Victorian manor houses, lobster hatcheries, 4D cinemas, ice cream factories and coastal forts provide more good reasons to get out of the rain."

Wet Britain: Cornwall is available now in Kindle format for just £1.53.
