Cornwall is the most popular regional holiday destination in the UK. The spectacular and varied coastline combined with some of the UK’s finest beaches attracts visitors here all year round.
The beaches range from the surf lovers curling swells that sweep in from the Atlantic to child-friendly gently sloping sandcastle building paradises and everything between.
Explore an industrial heritage that is visible as you travel around the county. Visit old mine engine houses and manor houses portrayed in and used as locations in the fictional TV series like Poldark. The wealth created by the mines funded some of the larges estates and manor houses of Cornwall. Many of which are now in the hands of the National Trust in Cornwall.
Visit fishing ports like Newlyn where large trawlers and drift net boats fish as far afield as the Portuguese coast staying away for days. Enjoy small fishing villages like Cadgwidth where the small boats go out from the small beach. Crewed as single-handed to lay and collect crab pots or using hand lines and returning each day.
Falmouth on the south coast is one of the world’s largest natural harbours and welcomes cruise liners from around the world. It is rich in maritime history. Mail ships delivered packets to all corners of the world. It is where the first news of the victory at Trafalgar was brought to shore. It is home to the Maritime Museum. There is so much to discover, explore and enjoy in Cornwall.
Newquay with its surf and music culture, the spectacular Fistral beach is the spiritual home for UK Surfers. With 9 beaches and the widest choice of accommodation, Newquay is Cornwall’s most popular destination.
St Ives enjoys a special place in the art scene. The Tate Museum, the Barbara Hepworth Garden are just two of galleries visitors will enjoy. St Ives has attracted artists for many years due to the particular quality of light found in its coastal setting.
