Cornwall is a land steeped in myth and legend, from bewitching mermaids to valiant kings. The towns and villages are testament to Cornish ancient history, with fascinating castle ruins and spectacular architecture. Harbours continue to nurture ancient maritime folklore and moorland countryside is littered with standing stones, barrows and stone circles.
The beaches along the Cornwall coastline are unrivalled elsewhere in Britain. Polzeath, Newquay and Perranporth are world-famous surfing beaches. The county is also home to beautiful gardens, namely the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project.
Cornwall continues to take care of its rich and captivating heritage by preserving the living history and celebrating their well-loved fables. But its boutique shops, modern galleries and craft markets give it a contemporary twist. Use the links below for more information on the county.
