Things to do here
Cornwall is one of England’s most extraordinary counties. From the ruins of Tintagel Castle with its role in Arthurian legend to the tin and copper mines that fuelled the early industrial revolution, it’s a place of dynamic living history that marries seamlessly with Cornwall’s reputation today as one of the world’s best surfing destinations in addition to its role as one of Britain’s food hotspots with Padstow in particular, home to some of the country’s leading chefs, most notably Rick Stein.
