CORNWALL TOURISM

 

Cornwall is a county that lies to the south west of United Kingdom with the River Tamar disconnecting it from England. It is one of the most secluded but spectacular areas.

Its balmy weather, long and rugged coastline, breaking waves, desolate moors, incredible views, enchanting castles, charming fishing hamlets, rich folklore and varied Celtic legacy make it the preferred travel destination.

Uneven craggy precipices, bleached beaches, and serene coves dot the coastline of Cornwall.
