Cornwall has everything the holidaymaker could wish for, beautiful beaches, quaint little villages and bustling towns with the finest local food on offer. If activities are your thing, then it's the perfect place to try surfing, play golf, go fishing or try some high octane sports like coasteering (a seaside combination of orienteering and mountaineering!) Whether you're looking for relaxation or adventure, or a little of both, Cornwall has it all.
Cornwall is a delightful destination for families, couples and anyone who loves the outdoors. With a milder climate than the rest of Britain, the country provides perfect conditions for exotic plants and animals, borne out by the plant sculptures at the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the tropical blooms at the Eden Project. If you're into the arts, then Tate St Ives has year-round art shows, or maybe check out a play at the Minack Theatre, an amazing open-air amphitheatre carved into the cliffs at Porthcurno.
