As the tip of the south western peninsula of England, Cornwall's almost completely surrounded by the coast, making it perfect for sea-based activities. You can sail at the Loe Beach Watersports Centre, Truro; swim in the blue water of the sea pool in Bude or scuba dive around the Lizard. Of course, there are plenty of land-based activities too, with 30 golf courses and opportunities for coastal walks, horse riding, orienteering and cycling.

History buffs will enjoy exploring the Gothic-revival cathedral in Truro, the 15th century parish of Lanhydrock, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth and the Geevor Tin Mine in Pendeen.
