Cornwall, or Kernow as the locals often call it, features the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain. No longer just a series of idyllic beaches and imposing cliffs, this rugged region has recently experienced a cultural and culinary revival that has turned it into one of the most vibrant parts of the country. Considered home of the legendary King Arthur, Cornwall is one of the more distinct parts of the UK, providing a vacation that will immerse you in its diverse Celtic heritage and an enormous wealth of archaeology. During your trip you will experience the many locals, fiercely protective of their Celtic roots, considering themselves more Cornish than British. Regardless of how they see themselves, the world regards the land of the proud Cornish as a captivating blend of ancient and new, where modern attractions stand right alongside historical mines and picturesque market towns.
