Cornwall is Britain’s southernmost county and the only recognized Celtic nation within England. As such, it has its own language and unique culture, but tourists flock here for its hundreds of sandy beaches, harbor villages and rich history. At Whitsand Bay, you can relax on the mile-long stretch of golden sand and fine-tune your surfing skills. Nearby, Land’s End offers views of magnificent natural landscapes and the Atlantic Ocean.

    While you’re here, try an authentic Cornish pasty, followed by a dessert of Cornish fairings or ice cream. Nature lovers should visit the Eden Project, the world’s largest indoor rainforest, and the beautiful botanical Lost Gardens of Heligan. Falmouth, Newquay, Truro and Penzance are the most popular tourist destinations in this historic county.
