Cornwall is England's most southwestern county, blessed with nice weather and known to scuba divers as the wreck diving destination in the UK. Being one of the main targets during both the First and Second World War, the seas are littered with German U-Boats, merchant vessels and warships, many of them unidentified. Cornwall's most famous base resort town is Falmouth with the stunning Pendennis Castle, the National Maritime Museum, but also plenty of evening entertainment and pubs. Another popular destination is Truro with its Cathedral and nearby Port Isaac and Port Gaverne.
Some of the highlights around Cornwall are its many mineral mines and the famous Eden Project, a botanical garden said to have stored all bio topics in the world! St Michael's Mount near Penzance is one huge granite rock complete with castle and hundreds of tales, a must see. Near Tintagel you can find one of the places said to be the ruins of King Arthur's castle. Newquay is a favourite seaside town with plenty of water attractions and the famous Blue Reef Aquarium. Land's End (Penn an Wlas) is another tourist attraction for being the most southwestern point of mainland Britain. Hikers will love the South West Coast Path National Trail that covers much of its coastal landscape but also the Roseland's Peninsula truly is phenomenal.
Scuba divers will love these relatively warm waters. Cornwall is blessed with the rough and golden sand coastline of the Atlantic Ocean and the more tranquil cove-like English Channel. There is some great diving in Falmouth Bay with the Manacles being the final resting place of hundreds of ships including the popular Volnay and Mohagan. Some of the other popular places for diving are Mullion, St Ives Bay and the Lizard. An easy day trip can be a visit to the Scilly Islands with its hundreds of rocks and islets a hazard for ships since ages.
