Cornwall's population reportedly swells from around 500,000 to over 5 million in the peak Summer months so it's no wonder the roads, restaurants, pubs and beaches can get somewhat busy.
So with September already upon us, now is the perfect time to avoid the high season bustle and make the most of the Autumn sunshine and the crowd-free beaches.
Start planning your September adventure with our list of the top seven things to do in Cornwall this September:
1. Explore the Zog Activity Trail at Cardinham with your little ones
