Arts & heritage

Anyone who visits West Cornwall cannot fail to be inspired by our culture. The place breathes creativity and the farther west you go down Cornwall’s long, narrowing peninsula, the more intense and pure the light becomes, the more vibrant the colours, the more your eyes light up . . .

Fishing and mining were once the cornerstones of the Cornish economy. The traditions of these communities provide a vibrant culture for today’s visitor.

Bronze Age standing stones are more densely located in the Land’s End Peninsula of Cornwall than in any other area of Britain and together with the remains of earlier neolithic burial chambers and Iron Age ‘cliff castles’, these sites offer a wealth of interest for the visitor wishing to explore the pre-history of the region.
