Top Sights in Cornwall

Cornwall's coastline is legendary. A 430-mile stretch of wave-scarred cliffs and wild headlands, dotted with sleepy fishing hamlets, secluded coves and shimmering golden sands. It's one of Britain's most diverse and beautiful natural wonders and a favourite holiday destination.

Beach lovers are spoilt for choice. Newquay alone has 11 to choose from, including Fistral Beach, one of the world's top surfing attractions. While Perranporth, Kynance Cove and Porthcurno Beach offer bucket and spade action among breathtaking surroundings.

Elsewhere, wander the Eden Project's awe-inspiring biomes, climb the dreamlike St Michael's Mount or explore tales of King Arthur at mysterious Tintagel Castle.
