It is also a treasure trove of World Heritage Sites, officially designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and historic buildings reflecting its rich seafaring and mining history.

Inland, miles of ancient footpaths, a mass of wild flowers in spring and summer, connect unspoilt villages and tiny hamlets with woodlands and rolling hills making Cornwall a walkers paradise.
