Where are the best places to visit in Cornwall, England?

Asked by Rheto_Ric (1172 points ) April 9th, 2012

We’ll be taking the train as we don’t drive, and we’re thinking of packing a tent, as we’re pretty broke. I like beaches, she likes villages and seafood restaurants. Oh, and we have a two-year-old in tow. Basically looking for some basic information on the best spots, hidden treasures, and preferably within a short taxi ride from a train station. Thanks.

the Cornwall Tourism Board might have some ideas.

The Eden Project is amazing.

Also, Rick Stein’s restaurant in Cornwall. I haven’t been but I’ve seen it on the telly.

All the pubs. Great beer on draft there.

Polperro is a wonderful fishing village as are Mousehole and St. Ives. I believe you could get to St Ives by public transportation; the others might be harder. There may be rural busses you could take between villages.

A history of the mining industry can be found at East Poole Mine. At the opposite end of the spectrum is The Eden Project with its biomes.

You might enjoy Lanceston Castle, although the town itself is not much.

Par Beach is worth a visit.

If you like museums The Royal Cornwall Museum and The National Lighthouse Museum are both good.

Here is a list of cheap (but good) eats in Cornwall.
