Cornwall is one of the most popular holiday destinations for UK tourists looking to escape to the beach, connect with nature and try surfing. The vast sandy beaches are unrivalled elsewhere in Britain for their beauty and have made Cornwall a holiday favourite for generations.
The main beach towns in Cornwall, such as Perranporth, Polzeath and Newquay are well known for their superb surfing beaches. Whereas, St Austell Bay and St Ives Bay offer a more tranquil setting, with sandy golden beaches that extend for miles.
Another unique attraction of Cornwall is its history. The moorland countryside of West Cornwall and Bodmin Moor are peppered with ancient monuments such as standing stones, barrows and stone circles. For those looking for a family day out of sightseeing, there is an abundance of historic houses and country mansions dotted around Cornwall. Each with their own history and nestled in parkland or fine gardens, there is plenty to see and explore in Cornwall.
For those looking to escape to the outdoors, there are many gardens and wildlife centres in Cornwall. The most famous being, the Eden Project which consists of 2 vast landscaped greenhouses containing a variety of temperate and tropical plants. Or Trebah Gardens, a spectacular 26 acre Cornish ravine garden that descends 200 feet to a private beach on the River Helford located near Falmouth in Cornwall.
