Cornwall, United Kingdom

November 5, 2012 by  

Cornwall, United Kingdom, Cornwall (Cornish: Kernow) is a Duchy in the extreme south west of the UK and includes the Isles of Scilly, considered the mystical home of the legendary King Arthur. Lying westwards beyond the River Tamar border with its nearest neighbour Devon, Cornwall is one of the more isolated and distinct parts of the United Kingdom but is one of the most popular with travellers and holiday-makers.

Its relatively warm climate, long coastline, amazing scenery, and diverse Celtic heritage (combined with tales of smuggling and pirates!) go only part of the way to explaining its appeal. Cornwall is increasingly becoming a popular destination for those interested in cultural tourism due to its long association with visual and written arts, and enormous wealth of archaeology.

Its mining heritage has recently been recognised by the United Nations (UNESCO). Cornwall has always been fiercely proud of its Celtic identity, and for many residents their Cornish identity supersedes their Englishness or Britishness.
