A Visual Tour of Cornwall

Start planning your next Cornish adventure with help from Experience Cornwall Tours

Cornwall is packed full of breath-taking scenery, its brimming with history, its proud of its culture and prides itself on its hospitality, food and drink. But where do you base yourself if you are new to Cornwall?

Hi, I’m Louise founder of Experience Cornwall Tours and I’m going to give you a visual guide to the four ‘corners’ of our stunning county that I’m lucky enough to call home.

What’s on your door to explore?

The Rugged North, with its high cliffs, long golden beaches, and surfing culture. The soft South with sheltered creeks, thatched fishing villages, sub-tropical gardens and areas of outstanding natural beauty. The ancient West with UNESCO world mining heritage status, a unique open-air theatre and of course the UK’s most Westerly point at Land’s End. Or Go East, where you will find Moorland, coastal villages, historical houses, and the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.

I hope this visual guide will help you choose your base for your stay.
