A Guide for people visiting the County of Cornwall

 

Cornwall is an area of 3,559 square kilometres, situated in the far South West of the UK mainland. It boasts the longest (697 km) and one of the most spectacular coastlines in the whole British Isles. Nowhere in Cornwall are you more than 16 miles from the sea. It is a land of beauty, myth and legend with a history spanning over 6,000 years from Neolithic man to the world famous Eden Project.


We like to know where our visitors come from.
Hundreds of you have already told us. Please add your details as well.
This website has been created for the benefit of the millions of people who visit the county each year. (In 2008 there were around 4.4 million staying visitors and another 9.9 million day visitors - spending over 1.7 billion in the county. Over 53,000 people work in the Cornish tourism industry - 22% of the population*.) This website is not intended to be complete and, although it continues to grow (now well over 2000 pages), we intend to continue adding new information and removing what has become redundant for many years to come.
During the last ten years this website has averaged over 6,250 visitors per month (see our web statistics).
Up to the end of December 2012, we have had over 735 thousand visitors, from more than 100 different countries across all 5 inhabited continents.
