Cornwall is a region in the South West of England, and the most southerly point of mainland Britain. It retains a distinct cultural identity, including its own language and traditions, and is recognised as one of the six ‘Celtic nations’.
In recent centuries Cornish mines helped fuel the origin of the industrial revolution in the UK and Cornish miners and sailors settled around the world: 2 million Americans can trace their ancestry back to Cornwall.
Today, the region is at the cutting edge of driving the UK’s new green revolution with the country’s first geothermal power plant and lithium extraction site.
Cornwall’s stunning landscape includes some of the most beautiful beaches and coastal scenery in the UK and even the world’s largest indoor rainforest.
The region is also known for its hospitality, with almost 20 million visits made there from the UK and around the world each year. It has also hosted films and TV shows, from the BBC’s Poldark, to James Bond and Germany’s long-running Rosamunde Pilcher TV series.
