Cornwall – Home of the great “Cornish Pasty”
Like many of the counties in this area of Britain, Cornwall was inhabited with people from the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic periods. Whilst there is plenty of evidence to show the County’s ancient history, there is very little to confirm the presence of the Romans, although they clearly did occupy the area.
Cornwall has a history of tin and copper mining, which played an important part in the County’s economy from the Middle Ages until the middle of the 19th century. As this industry declined, china clay extraction gained more importance. Fishing and agriculture are also contributors to the economy, as is tourism.
Cornwall has the mildest and sunniest climate in the United Kingdom, which is why the area is popular with tourists looking for a ‘seaside’ holiday nearer home. The County is famous for many things, but it is the ‘Cornish Pasty (or pastie)’ that people remember the most. Although this ‘pasty’ may contain many different types of filling, it usually consists of beef, onion, potato and swede (seasoned with pepper).
Reasons to visit Cornwall
Cornwall offers a number of attractions, whether you are looking for a beach, a fishing trip, scenic break or historical sites. There are more than 300 beaches in Cornwall, but the top five are said to be Porthtowan, Porthmeor, Porthminster, Gyllyngvase and Polzeath.
If you are looking for an activity, there is Cycling, Adventure Sports, Fishing, Golf, Horse Riding, Sailing, Surfing, Walking and other Watersports.
More usual attractions include the splendid Pendennis Castle, the Crealy Great Adventure Park, Flambards, Treasure Park and Dairyland Farm World. Of course, we must not forget Lands End, the Aquariums, gardens and many historical buildings.
