Cornwall offers numerous attractions, activities and events all year round. The holiday county is famed for its stunning country houses, medieval castles and dozens of places of interest including Bude, Boscastle and King Arthur’s Tintagel, all hidden in the spectacular coastal cliffs. Market towns like Camelford and Wadebridge and the attractive fishing ports of Padstow and Port Isaac ooze charm whilst inland there’s the muted fury of Bodmin Moor and the historic towns of Bodmin and Launceston.
A must-see is one of the world’s top eco attractions, The Eden Project which is set in an old clay pit and showcases 100,000 plants from around the world in two giant transparent domes. Further south in Megavissy the Lost Gardens of Heligan reveal restored productive gardens & pleasure grounds from the early 20th century. Culturally the county houses Tate St Ives, Cornwall’s very own Tate Gallery displaying local and international art as well as the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden.
Boasting some of the UK’s best sweeping sandy beaches, Cornwall is also ideal for water-based activities and is a well-known mecca for surfers.
