West Cornwall

Why visit West Cornwall?

A large part the peninsula here was once an island, and even though nowadays joined to the mainland, a feeling of individuality remains. Heathland covers the granite outcrops and the area is scattered with remnants of an incredibly ancient heritage. As you slip off the edge of the map into rocky gorges where tiny fishing villages face a wild ocean it’s as if you have slipped off the edge of time where Cornwall reveals its most individual and captivating side.

You'll find:

  • Long stretches of golden sand
  • Inspiring artists colonies
  • Smugglers coves
  • Historic mining settlements
  • Surf spots
  • Boat trips
  • Harbour towns
  • Ancient stone circles and Iron Age villages
  • St Michael's Mount
  • Lizard Peninsula
  • Minack Theatre
  • Land's End
