Cornwall: Why go

Ancient Kernow - as it's sometimes called down here - has one of the most breathtakingly beautiful coastlines in Britain, and the longest. All the world flocks to Cornwall in summer - for, the sand, surf and subtropical gardens, the coastal footpaths and glittering creeks, the cornish pasties and the clotted cream teas, the famous seafood restaurants and the old smugglers' inns. Tin and fishing were the industries of the past but today tourism is Cornwall's biggest trade.
