Shaped by the sea, home to over 300 beaches and coves, bustling fishing villages and world-class attractions, Cornwall is a must-see destination.
Lying on a narrow peninsula, Cornwall is surrounded by water. No inland area is more than 20 miles from the sea and each coast has a lure of its own. For drama and intrigue head to the north coast, where wild Atlantic waves crash onto sheer cliffs and abandoned mines teeter just metres above the short. In contrast, the south Cornish coast is a tranquil land, home to deep estuaries and hidden coves, where waves gently lap onto the shore.
Step aware from the beach to discover a buzzing creative scene including the Tate St. Ives and Barbara Hepworth Garden and Gallery both in pretty St. Ives. Be entertained with a performance at the incredibly stunning Minack Theatre, set high on the Cornish cliff tops and lose yourself in myth and legend with a visit to St. Michael’s Mount. Tour the many beautiful and often historically important gardens or take to the water on a wildlife expedition.
And if that isn’t enough to whet your appetite then allow the Cornish food and drink scene to tempt you further. From handcrafted gins to just landed seafood, Cornish fare is simply unbeatable.
