Welcome to Cornwall
Cornwall has it all, with Britain's best surf beaches, jaw-dropping coastal scenery, picturesque fishing villages, and the barren beauty of Bodmin Moor. You are neverfar from the sea and with over 300 beaches to choose from it really is the ultimate place for a beach holiday.
With a stunning coastline it’s no wonder that Cornwall has such a thriving art scene. St Ives is at the heart of all things art with harbourside alleyways housing local galleries and artist's workshops as well as the excellent Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth Museum. And when it comes to theatre, it doesn’t get more dramatic than the cliff-side Minack Theatre.
Cornwall is a land of myths and legends, from King Arthur and his supposed birthplace at Tintagel Castle to the pixies and giants that roam along the 50 miles of heritage coastline. It also has a more tangible maritime and mining history. You can explore Cornwall’s tin-mining past across various cliff-top sights that have been awarded World Heritage Status.
The futuristic domes and unique environments of the Eden Project can make a day disappear in a fascinating flash. The castle-topped isle of St Michael’s Mount is simply legendary, and Constantine Bay is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. If you fancy escaping that coastal light then go underground with a trip to Geevor Tin Mine where you can experience Cornwall's mining history.
Cornwall is all about surfing. So what are you waiting for, dude? Grab your board and head down to Fistral Beach in Newquay to spend a day catching waves. Scuba divers will be amazed at the sealife to be found within the wrecks off the coast of Falmouth. And to experience Cornwall's mining heritage then cycle the Mineral Tramways path which takes you through Camborne, Redruth and Gwennap.
