Cornwall is a place that is rich in culture and history, and is one of the most special regions of England. I enjoy going back there at any opportunity I can get. Having traveled so much, I can say that Cornwall is a very special place and it is a place that everyone should experience. Here is my short guide to visiting Cornwall and perhaps some ideas about planning your next holiday.
A Polzeath holiday is a great way to experience the stunning atmosphere of Cornwall and it is one of my favourite places there. One of the best parts is of course the amazing beach there, which is absolutely ideal for a surf. I also love the number of cafes and restaurants, which makes the surrounding nature so much more beautiful. I particularly enjoy exploring the coastline and there are just miles and miles of it to see and always something next to explore.
This little seaside town is quite unique in the UK. It is extremely well known as a place of art and the best sculptors, painters and other artists flock here for the atmosphere. Of course a place of great art should also have great places to exhibit it and St Ives has a number of galleries in the town. This is an interesting and cultural town, that you won’t find anywhere else in the UK.
With a beautiful white sand beach, the South Pacific and a small valley as a backdrop Porthcurno is another place that I love to visit in Cornwall. It is located a few kilometres from Land’s End. This inconspicuous place actually played an interesting role in the the second World War with a submarine communications cable station, which was used as a hub for intelligence. Interestingly the cable station was protected by tunnels and you can visit them today. As well as this the crystal clear waters of the beach here are some of the best in all of Cornwall.
No article about Cornwall would be complete without a section about Land’s End. I recommend spending at least a few days here to enjoy the beauty of this place. In particular, the walks around the area are some of the best in all of Cornwall and the scenery from the cliffs is just unreal. My favourite walk is of course along the cliffs from Land’s End to Sennon Cove.
