Things to do in South Cornwall
Spectacular scenery and wonderful whitewashed villages
Discover the best of South Cornwall
Rolling waves and mile-wide sandy beaches make South Cornwall’s coastline a firm favourite with everyone from surfers to sunbathers, and families to food lovers. Walk along towering clifftops with spectacular views or explore hills that roll gently down to sandy coves and bays. Find wooded river valleys and estuaries that are perfect for sailing, or wander around whitewashed fishing villages, harbour towns and exotic gardens. Or if you fancy something a little different, there’s the Tate St Ives gallery, the National Boat Museum, and the world's largest indoor rainforest at the Eden Project.
Get close to the animals, from Africa to South America, as you journey around this terrific zoo, set in tropical botanical gardens. Enjoy the adventure play areas and hands-on experiences including feeding time for the monkeys, lemurs, penguins and lions.
The Cornwall Seal Sanctuary
Set in the picturesque Helford Estuary by the beautiful village of Gweek, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary has over 55 years' experience in seal rescue, rehabilitation and release.
