Tucked away in the southwest corner of England, Cornwall is a wild, inspirational land filled with many existing attractions waiting for you to discover. It is a truly special place with so much to explore. From the Lost Gardens of Heligan to the medieval Tintagel Castle, there is also a great range of accommodation options, for those looking for Caravan Holidays in Cornwall to camping, lodges and more.
To help you make the most of it, here are some of the must-visit attractions waiting for you in this beautiful destination.
Newquay is the unofficial home of British surfing. Surfers flock to ride the waves at this world-famous beach break. If you want you can book surf lessons and learn how to pop up and catch your first wave. The beach is also known for hosting major surfing events like Quicksilver Open.
When you look at it from a distance, it will appear like two giant footballs, but inside The Eden Project contains a paradise of plants and the world’s largest indoor rainforest. It is one of the ultra-popular tourist attractions and deserves to be so. Rainforest and Mediterranean biomes make up the main two areas. There is also a huge outdoor garden for visitors to explore as well.
Before becoming a famous tourist destination for surfing and cream teas, Cornwall was the focal point of the King Arthur legends. From Merlin’s cave or Tintagel castle, the stories about those times have now become part of its landscape. With a two-day tour of Cornwall, you can get more acquainted with the rich history of this area and its famous ancient monarch.
Cornwall may be popular for its expansive moors and wind-swept beaches, but there is nothing more wholesome, healthy, and hearty than paddling along the Fowey estuary. If you are looking for a water sports experience, then consider going on a kayaking tour of Cornwall. It is sure to fill your lungs with fresh air and your mind with calmness and joy.
Cornwall’s National Lobster Hatchery is looking to save the world one lobster at a time. Though it is a lesser-known tourist destination, it is still worth visiting. You can learn a lot about these pincer-wielding beasts and the measures we can take to fish them in a more sustainable and non-damaging way.
Located on the eastern side of Mount’s Bay, Kynance Cove is where the turquoise waters of Cornwall meet the dramatic cliffs. You might have already seen this vibrant cove on many postcards and tourism adverts over the years. It is one of the most iconic spots to spend time, relax or stroll around. Try to visit the place during low tide to have a better experience. You can also visit the Lizard Point which is about 45 minutes away on foot.
Land’s End is Cornwall’s most overrated tourist attraction. You will be welcomed by a tacky theme park-style entrance, and from there you can go straight to the cliffs to experience the freedom of the sea, the crashing waves, and the unlimited beauty of the landscape. Don’t forget to get an obligatory photo with the famous white signpost.
