Unspoilt Cornwall


Vast, beautiful and largely unspoilt, Cornwall is the UK's holiday destination of choice, blessed by a magnificent coastline shaped by beaches, dunes, cliffs, harbours and forested creeks. From the surfer's paradise of Fistral Beach in Newquay to the quieter beaches found on the south coast, there's breath-taking beauty to be found all over the county. Venture to the UK mainland's most westerly point, Lands End, for the perfect photo opportunity, or to get a better glimpse into Cornish life, head to a popular resort such as the village of Tintagel, with its legendary King Arthur connection, the port town of Falmouth or the artsy St Ives. There's plenty to behold inland as well, however, with much of the region being a part of the Cornwall & West Devon Mining Landscape, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, defined not only by rugged moorland but also elements of the county's mining past and proud Celtic heritage. Not to be missed is the world-famous Eden Project and its instantly recognisable domes, housing varieties of plants from all over the world, or the delicious plates of freshly-caught seafood you can try at many a waterfront restaurant.
