Cornwall is the most south westerly county in England, and
is most famous for its stunning scenery - tantalising views of deep
wooded valleys and wide vistas of sparkling blue sea combine with a
varied and luxuriantly coloured landscape, historic market towns,
attractive fishing villages and picturesque riverside hamlets. But
there is more to Cornwall than the scenery - guide your way through
the great local food, intriguing history, adrenaline-fuelled
activities, fascinating tourist attractions and historical
traditions - all combine to make Cornwall one of the best
places in Britain for a holiday.
Cornwall has a strong industrial heritage, so much so that its
mining landscape has been made a designated UNESCO World
Heritage Site. Ancient antiquities, such as stone circles and
remains of Iron Age villages can also be found between Land's End
and Penzance, and Celtic crosses dot the Cornish countryside.
Cornwall's great attractions offer something for all interests
and ages. The famous Eden Project in St Austell explores
humankind's relationship with plants, and is one of Britain's most
popular attractions. St Ives is a must for arts and crafts, with 30
galleries including the Tate St Ives. Fowey has many small
galleries and specialist shops, as do St Agnes on the
north coast and Penzance in the west.
