Largely unpopulated and unspoilt, Cornwall is the perfect British rural getaway. A
land of myths and legends, sprawling granite moors, sub-tropical beaches and
the longest stretch of coastline in Britain. It's easily one of the most
diverse counties in England, a practical world unto itself. Visit the remains of King
Arthur's castle at Tintagel, or the magical island house of Saint Michael's
Mount near Marazion. Travel to both England's southern and westernmost tips
at Lizard Point and Land's End respectively. Discover ancient stone
monuments dotted around various "Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty". Each
and every town here is a practical gift to visitors. St Ives, with its own
Tate Museum, is the artistic centre of the south west; county capital Truro
(Cornwall's only city), has an amazing cathedral; Bude is famed for its many
sandy beaches and Penzance for its mild climate and continental feel. The
Eden Project, near the coastal town of St Austell, has become one of the
most visited attractions in the country. A cutting edge botanical garden
housed within giant bio domes, it features replicated landscapes of plant
and animal life from all corners of the world. More natural flora (and
indeed fauna) can be found further inland, on both Bodmin Moor and at
Penwith. As well as offering epic walking opportunities, there're dozens of
ancient monuments and sights to be found. These include the Merry Maidens, a
Bronze Age stone circle, which (according to legend) are 19 girls turned to
stone for dancing on a Sunday; and Dozmary Pool, where it's said Sir
Bedivere threw the sword of Excalibur to The Lady of the Lake.

Ooooo Arrrrr as the locals say! Cornwall, on the south western
peninsula of the British mainland one of the sunnier regions of
England. And yes ... to our foreign travelers although we always
complain about the weather in Britain, Cornwall can be a haven
and parts of it are sometimes refereed to as the British Riviera.
Though to be honest this description is best taken with a pinch
of salt. Also known for the cider brewed here a local you can often
savour this in a local pub but make sure it is a small one if you
haven't had it before, it can hit you like a sledgehammer if you
are not used to the apple tipple.
