Reasons to visit Cornwall

At the south-western tip of England, Cornwall is a land of legend, spectacular cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded valleys and quaint fishing villages. Add to this the historic engine houses and tin mines that are scattered across the landscape and you have a place with something for everyone.

The beaches at St Ives, Perranporth and Newquay are equally attractive for bucket-and-spade holidays and for enthusiastic surfers. In between, those same Atlantic rollers pound the granite cliffs to give the whole north Cornwall coast an awe-inspiring beauty.

The south coast is more sheltered, with lovely beaches, pretty fishing villages like Mousehole and Mevagissey, and the deep wooded valleys of the rivers Fal and Fowey.

Dotted about all over the county are the remnants of the mighty Cornish tin-mining industry. Take in the haunting profiles of abandoned engine houses, or visit one of the heritage sites and perhaps even go underground. Near St Austell, the Eden Project brings tourism right up to date with its vast biospheres.
