All sides of the Cornish coastline tell a different story.

Where wildlife flourishes and mining history is rooted into the ground. There are a number of places ideal for exploring and falling in love with Cornwall. Find inspiration on your next day out:

Botallack, near ST Just on the Tin Coast
On a wild Atlantic coast transformed by tin and copper mining, the famed Crowns engine houses cling to the foot of the cliffs. Once a busy industrial landscape, it's now part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and the Tin Coast. Recent location for mining scenes in BBC's Poldark.

Cape Cornwall, near ST Just on the Tin Coast
The coast between Land’s end and St Ives has been transformed by centuries of mining for Tin and copper. Cape Cornwall is one of the Tin Coast’s most famous landmarks, a distinctive hump of a headland providing a little shelter to the fishing boats at Priest’s Cove.
