Cornwall Tourist Information

Duchy of Cornwall (Kernow) Tourist and Visitor Information with links to heritage, nature and tourist attractions, many with brief details of disabled access

Cornwall - a romantic land of Tin mines and piskies (pixies), of smugglers and artists, writers and folklore. The Cornish people have a history of their own, with their own language and today you will see the Cornish Flag (St. Piran's Flag, the Patron Saint of Cornwall) being flown more than the Union Flag. Tourism is a major part of the economy of Cornwall and therefore effort is made to provide everything the visitor needs from adventure activities to quiet relaxation and of course there is Surfing.
