The Beaches

Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the UK. From wide and sandy with clear turquoise waters to rival those in the Caribbean, to the steep-cliffed, boulder-strewn with wild Atlantic waves crashing, there’s every kind of beach going.

Coastal Walks

Cornwall has miles and miles of stunningly beautiful coastline, helpfully marked out with public paths so you can make the most of the views. Along the south coast, you can walk from Newlyn to Penzance – which shows off St Michael’s Mount, do the seven miles Lizard coastal walk, or walk from Land’s End to Sennen Cove.

Pasties and Clotted Cream

No visit to Cornwall is complete without a daily pasty. This westerly county is the proud producer of some very delicious food, not least the Cornish pasty and clotted cream.

Tropical Gardens

Due to its position, Cornwall has a particularly balmy climate thanks to the Gulf Stream. As well as the obvious joy copious amounts of sunshine bring to its visitors, it also means that sub-tropical plants are able to grow – with palm trees a common sight.

Fishing Villages and Harbours

Everywhere you turn in Cornwall, there is a postcard-perfect town that will make you dream of upping sticks from London to the seaside. Some of the best include: St Ives, which has always attracted an arty crowd and has its own Tate Gallery; the quaint harbour of Charlestown is one for die-hard Poldark lovers, and Penzance is a town on the up with smart restaurants, cool hotels and a contemporary art scene.
