Not many people associate going to England to soak up some sun. However, as Cornwall is situated on the tip of England, it most certainly grabs many more rays than north of the country. There are some fabulous beaches in this region, where a lot of people go on holiday here. Many people relocate to this part of the country for retirement, as it is a great place to let off some steam and to relax from all the stress at work.
There are also many festivals that go on in this region, including the folk music tradition – which is great if you like to dance! Cornwall has also a variety of local delicacies such as the famous “Cornish Pasty”. “Saffron Cake” is also commonly eaten here, which is a cake filled with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Cornish ice cream and fudge are famous sweet treats that come from this area of England – these are enjoyed nationwide as is the pasty!
A visit to “Tintagel Castle” is definitely worth it, as is stands close by the sea and offers a brilliant view of the shore. Catch this view on a clear blue day to get the most picturesque shot. Cornwall is home to the Eden Project, which is one of the most largest greenhouses in the world. It is located in St Austell and has 2 large domes, both having different climates to suit the variety of plants that come from all over the world. You need at least a day here to see all what is offered!
