Here are five must-visit places in Cornwall that you won't want to miss this summer:
St. Ives: This charming seaside town is known for its stunning beaches, art galleries, and delicious seafood. Take a stroll along the picturesque harbour, then head to the Tate St. Ives, which features works by some of the most famous artists associated with the area.
The Eden Project: This unique attraction is a must-see for nature lovers. The Eden Project features a collection of biomes that house plants from around the world, including a tropical rainforest and Mediterranean garden.
Padstow: This charming fishing village is a food lover's paradise. It's home to Rick Stein's seafood restaurant, as well as a number of other excellent seafood spots. Take a stroll along the harbour, then head to the nearby Camel Trail, a 17-mile walking and cycling trail.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan: These beautiful gardens were restored to their former glory after being discovered overgrown and abandoned. Explore the various gardens, including the Jungle, the Italian Garden, and the Victorian Pleasure Grounds.
Land's End: This dramatic coastal spot is the most westerly point of mainland England. Take in the breath-taking views from the cliffs, and enjoy a spot of coastal walking on the South West Coast Path.
