Every summer, tens of thousands of British teenagers and twenty-somethings descend on Newquay to sample its notorious nightlife. But in recent years, the town’s residents have been keen to clean up its reputation and turn it into a respectable, family-friendly British getaway. Does Newquay still live up to the hype as the UK’s party capital? This programme follows four groups of young people as they head to the town to find out for themselves what the real Newquay is all about. In this episode, two best friends from Sheffield arrive to party on their own terms, three beauty queens sample some of the town’s delights, and a group of school friends hope to find love but end up drunk instead. Meanwhile, a group from the Welsh valleys arrive with big intentions, only to find out that friendship matters more than frat house shenanigans.
