Bude (; Cornish: Porthbud) is a compact seaside resort town in north east Cornwall, England, in the civil parish of Bude-Stratton and at the mouth of the River Neet (also known locally as the River Strat). It was sometimes formerly known as Bude Haven. It lies southwest of Stratton, south of Flexbury and Poughill, and north of Widemouth Bay, located along the A3073 road off the A39. Bude is twinned with Ergué-Gabéric in Brittany, France. Bude's coast faces Bude Bay in the Celtic Sea, part of the Atlantic Ocean. The population of the civil parish can be found under Bude-Stratton. It has a vibrant local community, well-known for its focus on the environment and home to the Two Minute Foundation started by writer, surfer and activist, Martin Dorey, among other green initiatives.
Its earlier importance was as a harbour, and then a source of sea sand useful for improving the inland soil. This was transported using Bude Canal. The Victorians favoured it as a seaside resort. With new rail links, it became a popular seaside destination in the 20th century. Bradshaw’s Guide of 1866, Section 2, described Bude as: “a small port and picturesque village in the north-eastern extremity of Cornwall”. It described the town as having the dignity of a fashionable marine resort with excellent facilities for bathers. The harbour bed consists of fine bright yellow sand consisting of small shells. “The sea view is of a striking, bold and sublime description – the rocks rising on every side to lofty broken elevations”. It also describes Bude as a romantic retreat.
Bude holds an annual Heritage Day, which is almost as popular as its Lifeboat Day. Holidaymakers arrive via the A39 Atlantic Highway. The name came from the Southern Railway's famous Atlantic Coast Express, which ran daily from Waterloo for forty years between 1926 and 1966, serving an area from Ilfracombe to Padstow. Historian, Bryan Dudley Stamp of Bude campaigned hard for the new name to be accepted.
