Heritage Sites in Cornwall

Cornwall has an incredibly interesting and varied heritage & history. From the unmistakable chimney stacks dotted across the county to tales of smuggling legends, Cornwall has a lot to tell - as long as you know where to look!

With large amounts of the Duchy also managed by either the National Trust and/or English Heritage, you can immerse yourself into the Cornwall of Olde and literally step back in time.


Find out why Cornwall was once the world authority on mining, or stop by for a drink and a bite to eat in the same inn's as some of the legendary smugglers frequented.


Don't forget: there are also plenty of fine gardens and country houses, a myriad of walks and trails and a list of National Trusts sites in Cornwall. All allow you to explore more of what is, arguably, the most scenic county in England.
