Arrrrr, me hearties! Cornwall, country of pirates, pasties and the perfect cream tea, is the southernmost tip of England and the longest continuous stretch of coastline in the country. Famed for its hidden coves, salt-laden sea views and surfing, Cornwall is a proudly individual county that even has its own independence movement.
Hike round Sennen Cove to Land's End, to stand at the UK's most southerly point. Take in some of the county's most adorable wildlife on a visit to the Cornish Seal and Screech Owl sanctuaries. The giant biomes of the Eden Project house the world's largest indoor rainforest, with a Canopy Walkway from which you can see Cassava, Cola, and even Sausage trees! And of course, no trip to Cornwall would be complete without munching on a Cornish pasty – made according to a secret recipe known only to Cornish natives – or tucking into a "cream tea", a delectable combo of scones, jam, clotted cream and tea or coffee that will set you up for the rest of the day.
