CORNWALL’s Best Places to Visit in 2022

We've selected our favourite of Cornwall's most beautiful and interesting places to visit in 2022


Tintagel
Precariously positioned on the rugged North Coast of Cornwall, Tintagel’s 13th-century castle has inspired writers and artists for centuries.  The castle clings to the headland and the dramatic steps and bridges between the ruins are not for the faint-hearted. 


The Best of Britain

Mousehole
Mousehole (pronounced Mowzal) is one of Cornwall's most picturesque and charming fishing villages. This harbourside location is foodie heaven and local dishes often take inspiration from the sea, with shellfish in abundance.   

The Best of Britain

Polperro
One of the most popular destinations in Cornwall, Polperro is a largely unspoilt fishing village on the southeast coast. The beach here is small and sandy and sports a fabulous little tidal pool ideal for first-time swimmers. Pretty cottages cling to the steep hillside of this quaint harbour.

The Best of Britain

Padstow
Padstow is considered one of England's finest locations and is often referred to as Cornwall's jewel in the crown. Soft, golden beaches and mesmerising seascapes surround this bustling fishing port. This is also a foodie haven and home to some of the country's most respected restaurants. 


The Best of Britain

Newquay
Famed for its seemingly endless stretch of beaches and giant waves that have been whipped up into a frenzy by coastal winds, Newquay is known for its surfing scene. From the award-winning Fistral Beach to the quieter shores of Lusty Glaze, this Cornish seaside town never goes out of fashion.


The Best of Britain

Mevagissey
Mevagissey is an attractive village and fishing port five miles south of St. Austell. This was once the centre of Cornwall's pilchard fishery with boat building traditions dating back to 1745. The village still boasts a working harbour with local fishermen heading out each morning.



The Best of Britain

The St Germans Viaduct
The all stone, Grade II listed St Germans Viaduct was built in 1908 to provide a link on the line which ran from Plymouth to Falmouth. Standing at 106 ft high, the viaduct spans the River Tiddy and is a stunning place to go for a walk, swim or sail.
The Best of Britain

The Lost Gardens Heligan
The Lost Gardens of Heligan is world-renowned and one of the most popular botanical gardens in England. The gardens are typical of the 19th century Gardenesque style whose design encourages gardens to be recognisable as works of art.


The Best of Britain

Fowey
Fowey Harbour is nestled on the South Cornish coast between Plymouth and Falmouth. The harbour is situated on the western side of the Fowey River and bound by other towns and villages including Golant and Lostwithiel. Locals say the port is "littered with sunken boats bought by drunk amateurs".


The Best of Britain

Port Isaac
The word picturesque could have been coined for Port Isaac. The narrow winding streets are lined with whitewashed cottages, many of which are now listed due to their historical importance and pleasing aesthetic. Wander down to the harbour where you will find local fishermen landing their daily catch each morning.

The Best of Britain

St Ives
Renowned for its dazzling beaches, award-winning restaurants, vibrant art scene and historic cobbled streets, St.Ives is one of Cornwall's most picturesque seaside towns.  Its active fishing boats supply many of the region's finest restaurants.


The Best of Britain

Wheal Coates
Situated on the cliff tops between St Agnes and Porthtowan, the Wheal Coates mines are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and are managed by the National Trust. 


The Best of Britain

Kynance Cove
Sparkling azure water and powdery sand greet you at Kynance Cove, one of the prettiest locations in Cornwall on the west side of the Lizard.  Owned by the National Trust, a steep walk takes you down to the beach below, and at low tide you can view the distinctive serpentine rock formations, caves and rock stacks.
