Charlestown Regatta Week


If you are heading down to the south west this summer and planning to stay in self catering Cornwall cottages for their holidays, why not pencil the Charlestown Regatta Week into your itinerary?

Charlestown Regatta Week runs from July 28 - August 03, offering a range of water sports events and a whole host of family fun at one of Cornwall’s most beautiful villages, with its magnificently authentic and historic Georgian harbour.    

A range of events will be taking place throughout the week, such as the raft races, fun triathlon, donkey derby, live music from local bands and the colourful regatta carnival led by two local brass bands, followed by a traditional flora dance through the streets of the village. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a proms concert and to round off the week dance the night away at the Regatta Rocks live music event.

Charlestown’s historic and authentic Georgian harbour and resident fleet of magnificent sailing ships are particular interest to visitors, as the village has starred in over 25 TV series and films over the years.
