With a warmer climate than the UK’s average, Cornwall – with its rugged landscape, fascinating historical landmarks and chocolate-box fishing villages – is one of our favourite tourist destinations in the country. Feasting on Cornish pasties, fudge and cream teas (jam first) while pottering around winding cobbled streets is only part of the allure.

Whether you’re getting lost in the landscape that inspired the legend of King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, visiting the otherworldly tidal island of St Michael’s Mount or cove-hopping near Lizard Point, the most southerly point in the country, there is much to be discovered in Cornwall.

We’ve got expert curated guides to the best hotels, what not to miss on the Isles of Scilly, what to do during the county’s off-season and much more.
