The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall (Cornish 'Kernow') forms the south-western peninsula of the British Isles and is a major holiday destination offering a wide variety of places of interest and outdoor activities. Washed by the warm Gulf Stream, it enjoys a sub-tropical climate. Highly favoured by Victorian plant collectors, it has an abundance of lush gardens open to the public.
The latest addition to these gardens is the world-famous Eden Project. The region also has a long industrial heritage. Its copper and tin fuelled the Bronze Age in Europe and its mines were the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution. Once occupied by the islands' aboriginal culture, it has, not only a rich archaeological heritage but, a culture distinct from the rest of England. The North coast is wild and rugged, battered by Atlantic waves, while the South coast is a wooded riviera of sunken valleys. Cornwall's miles of golden sands draw surfers from across the world.
The Tintagel / Boscastle area
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the castle ruins on the cliffs at Tintagel evoke the misty romance of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, for it was here - according to medieval sources - that King Arthur was conceived. Arthurian references are everywhere, from the stained glass windows of King Arthur's Hall and the battle re-enactments of Tintagel to Rocky Valley, where Uther Pendragon's hid his knights, and to Slaughterbridge, where the battle of Camlan reputedly took place and a stone marks Arthur's burial place. Magic and mystery abound, not least in the Museum of Witchcraft, which sits in Boscastle's sinuous, Elizabethan harbour, but also in the quest for Thomas Hardy's loving-cup cast into the waters of the River Valency, source of the 2004 'Boscastle Flood'.
High cliffs, quiet, wooded valleys, atmospheric moors and an abundance of outdoor and water-based activities await visitors, together with song-filled pubs and haut cuisine.
