Blessed with over 300 miles of stunning coastline with beaches, dunes and cliffs, Cornwall is famous as a seaside holiday destination. This gorgeous county has magnificent historic harbours, stunning rock formations and beautiful creeks surrounded by forest. A trip here inspires the senses.

Cornwall's tourism is booming and it is not difficult too see why. There are so many visitor attractions and amazing activities to enjoy. From end-to-end, Cornwall has more tourism attractions than almost any other place on the United Kingdom.
Named by some as the 'eighth wonder of the world', the Eden Project is a stunning global garden contained within dome-like tropical biomes. This epic destination is home to a multitude of plant life, showcasing the complex biodiversity and mankind's ultimate reliance on nature.
The Eden Project is not just a tourist attraction though. It is also a centre for educational learning and the study of environmental conservation. There are programmes and workshops here for children and adults, who come here to learn all about a sustainable future.
In the biomes, visitors can discover the tropical plants that are used to produce everyday products and experience the sights and smells of the rainforest of the Amazon. This giant, indoor garden is a great place to walk around - but prepare to get weary, it is very hot here especially at the top of the path. Its a good job there are ice creams to be purchased at the bottom.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan is another major garden attraction in the South West. This elaborate garden remained hidden for centuries, until keen gardeners discovered it and regenerated the pants for future generations to enjoy.
There are some wonderful walks to discover at helicon, including forest trails, rhododendron alleys, wildlife ponds, rose gardens and greenhouses brimming with edible plant life.
No trip to Cornwall would be complete without a visit to Land's End. This place is the most south westerly part of mainland Britain, famous for its sheer cliffs, raging seas and abundance of birdlife. Its one of the most beautiful landmarks in the country where hundreds of thousands people flock every year to enjoy the scenery and serenity.
When at Lands End it is obligatory to pose for a picture at the famous Land's End signpost. This is where people celebrate after making the long walk or cycle from John OGroats at the other end of the British Isles in Scotland. There is a popular Land's End restaurant that is a scenic location to refuel and recharge the batteries. From here its a shot hop to Sennen or Penzance where you can hop on a boat for sea trip along the coast.
