Cornwall & The South: Pt 25 – Minions

Our final stop in Cornwall was a little unusual, and when we saw it on the map we thought as a joke we could go and get a picture with the sign. When we arrived, we were totally unprepared for what we saw…


Status: Cornwall Unitary Authority & County, Village, England

Date: 08/08/2016

Travel: Car

Eating & Sleeping: N/A

Attractions: Minions Sign etc


Gemma is a big fan of Despicable Me, and as we travelled over Bodmin Moor towards Devon, heading for Hampshire, we spotted in the AA Road Map that it said Minions, a small village in the middle of nowhere. We thought it would be amusing to go and get a picture with the village sign, but it turns out Universal Pictures beat us to it!

Sadly the sign was only temporary, and it has been removed since, however whilst it was there it generated a lot of interest, with people from far and wide coming to see it. We genuinely had no idea it was there, so it was quite a surprise as we came around the corner!

Anyway, we said goodbye to Cornwall, and headed for Hampshire to start the next leg of our journey, which took us around Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, East & West Sussex and Kent…
