73 Popular Attractions in Cornwall

The south west tip of England, Cornwall is the county that has the longest coastline in the country

Top Attractions

The iconic St Michaels Mount is connected to the coast of Cornwall at low tide, but becomes an island when the tide is in. Another famous site in Cornwall is Tintagel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Another very popular spot is the Lizard and Kynance Cove, possibly the most photographed piece of coast in Cornwall. There are so many beautiful beaches in Cornwall, it would be hard to name the best.

Kids & Family

For the city kids a visit to Dairyland Farm World will be exciting, letting them understand where meat and milk comes from. Perhaps a visit to the Merry Maidens will get them wondering about early historic man or a day at Kidzworld might wear them out so they sleep well.

Shopping & Nightlife

Truro offers great shopping, and smaller places like St. Ives, Falmouth and Padstow also offer a wonderful range of unique shops mingled with cafes and retail outlets. Local craft fairs are a great experience too. Newquay seems to be the town of choice for nightlife, as it has a very active tourist community.

Day Tours

What about taking a trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, an aristocratic estate left to revert to Nature, but recently reclaimed. A trip to Land’s End- to the end of England is worth boasting about. For an experience related to the mines that are such a part of Cornish history, visit Levant Mine & Beam Engine. This is the only Beam Engine still operated by steam and still in its original site.
