History and Heritage attractions Explore Cornwall's vibrant past
Cornwall has achieved international recognition from UNESCO that has credited World Heritage Site status to ten industrial landscape areas which best represent our mining past. Cornwall's vibrant identity has evolved from history going back 3000 years and a rich traditional culture much of which still lives and breathes through the sites and scenery found throughout the region today. Discover this rich history by exploring museums, ancestral houses, castles and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.
