Discover Cornwall

Discover Cornwall

Its glittering coastal waters, chocolate-box seaside towns, and expanses of superb countryside make Cornwall one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations.

With a coastline stretching over 250 miles, Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the world. From tucked-away coves and inlets to pristine stretches of golden sands, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy. With such an incredible coast, Cornwall is a worldwide magnet for water sports enthusiasts and is unquestionably the UK’s surf capital.

The region has a rich history and is dotted with captivating heritage sites to explore. Venture across the tidal causeway of St Michael’s Mount to discover the unique history of its ancient castle and island village, or conjure up Cornish myths and legends amidst the romantic ruins of Tintagel castle, supposed birthplace of King Arthur himself.
