Why Cornwall?

Cornwall is one of the world's most iconic destinations. Located on the dramatic coastline of Great Britain surfers, food lovers, sailors and visitors find Cornwall to be a vibrant and exciting place to be with so many things to do.

Explore Cornwall's vast area and take in the stunning scenery. In the far west the sand is white and situated on the main headland is a legacy of Bronze age standing stones, huge granite burial chambers, Celtic crosses and holy wells.

The landscape of the heartland has recently been awarded World Heritage Site status, and is home to many fascinating remnants of a triumphant mining past that give visitors a sense of Cornwall's massive contribution to the Industrial Revolution.

But of course you can't forget or escape the wonder of Cornwall's maritime legacy with plenty of sea food and fresh fish on offer on the menus of Cornish restaurants.
