With roots that extend back to the last Ice Age, the history of Cornwall is one of the most multifarious in Europe, let alone Great Britain. Home to exquisite swaths of rugged coastline and moorland, tidy hamlets and a rich cultural legacy, the region of over half a million people is wonderful. Once a major engine in Great Britain's economy, Cornwall has become more and more reliant on tourism in recent decades. The result has been a boon to intrepid visitors who gather everywhere from beautiful Fistral Beach in Newquay, to the narrow village streets of Mousehole.
From the de facto capital of Truro to the historic coastal resort of St. Ives however, you can hardly choose a bad spot in Cornwall. The region has it all, whether your interests sway toward archaeology, heritage landmarks, museums or modern wonders such as the Eden Project. Open since 2001, the massive greenhouse and environmental education complex is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in Great Britain and draws millions to Cornwall every year.
Cornwall has a mild climate in comparison with the rest of Great Britain, with relatively high winds and rain on the Atlantic coast.
