Five things Cornwall is famous for …

  • King Arthur

A visit to Tintagel is a must if you visit Cornwall, supposedly the birthplace of King Arthur. This stunning location is also the site of Merlin’s Cave.

 

  • Food, Glorious Food

Pasties, ‘stargazy’ pie, Cornish Yarg, clotted cream … need we go on?

Come to Cornwall and be prepared to be gluttonous during your stay!

 

  • Poldark

The books written by Winston Graham have been around for decades and there have been two major adaptations by the BBC of the eponymous saga.

A tale of tin mining, love, family feuds, inspired the dramatic landscape.

 

  • Music

Or more accurately, Cornish bagpipes, that can be played by just handful of folks.  Of course, being surrounded by the coast on three sides also means sea shanties have a stronghold on the harmonies of our superb county.

 

  • The Stunning Coastline

Few places in the British Isles have such a varied coastline and such magnificent light, both of which have inspired artists for generations.
