The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Things to do

Tourism is Cornwall's biggest industry and, while in the summer it can somewhat overwhelm the charm of smaller villages, it is merely testament to the numerous attractions on this picturesque peninsula. For most, of course, the coastline is the destination, the county proud to call itself the chief surfing centre of the UK. The best way to reach the quietest spots is along the South West Coast Path that takes in the truly jaw dropping scenery of cliffs, moorland and beaches. Beyond this famous coastline is a mix of towns and villages that host sites of interest, ranging from the National Maritime Museum and the Tate St. Ives to the Newquay Zoo and the high-profile Eden Project. From Penzance you can also take a ferry out to the Isles of Scilly, a spectacular cluster of islands that offer the perfect getaway from the crowds.
