Accommodation and travel ideas in Cornwall
Cornwall is situated to the very south-west of England, and has some of the most breath-taking coastal scenery in the UK. The place is steeped in Celtic heritage such as the legend of King Arthur and has a litany of tales of smuggling and pirates. The county is also famous for its flora and gardens, including the ancient Bodmin Moor and the futuristic looking Eden project.
What to do
If you're visiting Cornwall, then you're more likely than not planning to spend a lot of time on the beach! And with good reason - the beaches here are some of the best in the UK, and attract families, surfers and backpackers throughout the year. Some of the most famous attractions along the coast are Tintagel Castle (supposedly King Arthur's birthplace) and Lands End with the striking St Michael's Mount.
Inland, there are numerous gardens and historic homes to visit, along with the world renowned Eden project. The county town of Truro is also worth a visit, particularly the impressive Cathedral which dominates the skyline. It's also great for foodies and shoppers: the network of narrow cobbled streets are home to a whole host of independent boutiques, delis and cafes.
