Anyone who has been around as long as I have will remember the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour, some of which was filmed in Cornwall. As an avid Beatles fan growing up in Cornwall, I remember being ridiculously excited at the prospect of bumping into them, a vain hope needless to say. The Fab Four arrived in the area in September 1967 during the Cornish leg of the tour, and while filming there they stayed at the Atlantic Hotel in Newquay, just along the road, but some of the filming took place at Watergate Bay.
