Famous for its wealth of ancient monuments and mining heritage sites, its artistic traditions and working fishing communities, it is a living landscape marked by signs of its Celtic past. There is a captivating atmosphere of mystery and romance throughout West Cornwall that is hard to find anywhere else in Britain. It is generated by the areas stunning natural beauty and by the sense of timelessness that clings to the rugged moorland and to the awesome Atlantic coastline.

The beaches of West Cornwall deserve the accolade of being the 'Best and most beautiful in the West'. The choice of beaches suits everyonefs needs, you can simply sunbath on silky soft sand and swim in crystal clear seas that match the best the Mediterranean offers. If you are looking for water sports then you can ride the Atlantic swell with surfboard and bodyboard. West Cornwall has the only two UK members of the 'Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club', St Ives Bay and Mounts Bay. St Ives has also been voted 'Best Seaside Resort in the UK' by the prestigious US published 'British Heritage' Magazine.

Home of St Michaels Mount and the Tate Gallery at St Ives, the Lands End peninsular offers a variety of experiences for every season - from the flowers of early Spring, through lively summer festivals to the dazzling lights of Christmas and New Year.

Beyond all of this lies the untouched wilderness of the Atlantic coast and the granite moorlands with their wealth of wildlife. Explore it and discover... The West Cornwall Experience. Population 12,000
