Welcome to Webcams in Cornwall - The most complete directory of webcams in Cornwall
Cornwall is a premier holiday destination, popular with both UK and foreign visitors. Cornwall has a number of webcams dotted around the county, and this website intends to list all of them. View the weather conditions, snow, storms, wind, snow or sunshine!
Webcams have become increasingly popular as a tool to show prospective visitors the current conditions and weather of the area or attractions and are particularly busy during times of extreme weather such as the beginning of 2010 when Cornwall had a lot of snow. Web Cams also drag in internet traffic to the owners websites, so its well worth installing one and these days it doesn't have to cost the earth, in fact many are just standard sub £20 cameras that take an image every 15 minutes or so.
Webcams are available in a variety of formats but generally consist of one of two types. Static webcams, as the name suggests, takes static pictures or snapshots that are updated on a regular basis. Streaming webcams are LIVE cameras that show a realtime video of whats going on. Static webcams are cheap and easy to setup and just using the supplied software, they can be added to your website in minutes. Streaming webcams are a little more complicated and can get costly especially if you're expecting large numbers of viewers. They do however, add value to any website.
Cornwall has developed into an extremely busy holiday hotspot and is going through huge development with new facilities being built on a regular basis. With attractions in Cornwall such as the Eden Project, and foody attractions such as Fifteen and Rick Steins continuously popping up, Cornwall is expanding rapidly.
