The West Country region
Cornwall has always been a popular holiday destination, but over the last 15 years tourism in Cornwall has really boomed. Cornwall enjoys an excellent climate with very mild winters and warm summers that are almost Mediterranean in nature. This climate has in turn helped with the growth and development of a wealth of botanical gardens in Cornwall that have become renown worldwide. Should however the climate not be warm enough, then artificial environments such as the Eden Project near St Austell have been created to show off even more diverse equatorial plant life. Porthtowan, has both compelling scenery and background. By being both steeped in history, and having evolved itself into one of the premier recreation destinations in both Britain and Europe, Porthtowan makes marks of its very own on the map of Cornwall. Rich History, Literally. From copper mining village to resort and holiday destination, Porthtowan has come through with merit.
A fusion of both the past and the present has worked for it in entirety, and it looks set to write a whole new chapter in its history. What may come next for Porthtowan is anyone's guess, yet as things stand it does make sense to visit the place and bask in the full light of history while enjoying a nice sunny day on one of the best beaches that has ever existed.
