Newquay is a popular tourist resort on the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall, with a steadily growing population, which now stands at around 20,000. The town's early prosperity was founded on pilchards but the arrival of the railway in the late eighteen hundreds saw a steady growth in tourism. The town’s ten long and very accessible beaches still prove a great draw to holidaymakers, who can swell the town’s population fivefold in the summer, with a good supply of hotel and guest house holiday accommodation. The town claims to be the surfing capital of Britain and many shops and services cater for the sport. The map below shows the features of the town, its streets and houses as they were in the mid twentieth century. Click on a selected area of the map to see an enlargement.
