Cornwall’s extraordinary landscape has inspired generations of artists and writers, including Dylan Thomas, Sir John Betjeman, Daphne du Maurier, Barbara Hepworth and Stanhope Forbes. And it’s easy to see why – its rugged shoreline, sandy beaches, turquoise waters, meandering rivers, attractive woodland and open countryside combine to form one of the UK’s most beautiful regions. The diversity of landscape along its 700km of mainland coastline also makes Cornwall one of the best places for walking. Whether you’re venturing into the lonely southeast corner of the Rame Peninsula; visiting beautiful towns and villages such as Fowey, St Ives and Padstow; enjoying the softer fringes of the Camel Estuary; experiencing the great cliffs of Cornwall’s northern coast; discovering the rugged joys of the Lizard Peninsula or gazing across a vast expanse of sea as you reach Land’s End, there are few better places to explore. Add to this an array of flora and fauna, some significant geology, striking architecture, and a history that extends back many thousands of years and you have the perfect walking destination.
