    5 Places To Visit In Cornwall

    Eden Project
    This is the first place I visited immediately after moving to Cornwall about three years ago. I'll be the first to admit I'm not an environmental type of person but I love adventure, so when a friend suggested this for a weekend out, I thought why not. What a surprise it was. This was not a place for 'boring' environmentalist discussing about climate change and incomprehensibly sampling plant life from around the world . This was a fun place to be. There were activities for kids and adults alike like from ice skating to painting workshops. Intriguing artists' exhibitions were in abundant. Cool music from alternative bands was on offer and the selection of world food irresistible. Top all this with the fresh crisp country air and you'll be planning your next trip back.

    St Michael's Mount
    A must for those who love history. The scenery is breathtaking as you approach it from Penzance. At low tide crossing the causeway on foot is an exhilarating experience. There is a lot to do and see at the castle.  You'll learn about the English Civil War when St Michael's Mount was under siege or the history of the St Aubyn family. Alternatively, if you just want to get on with it  there is a lot pictures to take.

    Enys Garden, Penryn
    This is a little closed garden near my house. I've lost count of the number of times I've been there. It's the oldest garden in Cornwall and that fact itself makes me want to visit each time. I love learning about old things. History. I visit mostly during the summer because that's when the blueberries beautifully spring up in the parkland. For flower lovers, the flower garden offersvariety from all over the world, thanks to the travel adventures of J D Enys.

    Truro Cathedral
    Right in the middle of Truro City Centre this piece of architecture is a site to behold. It offers the opportunity for a lot of picture-taking, and if you want  more, there are services to attend to, concerts and the cathedral restaurant that is open all week.

    Gyllyngvase Beach Cafe
    Perfect little spot for beach lovers. Grab a coffee, a random drink and chit chat, a swim or even a lazy walk along the sandy shore. It's all there for you.

    Possibly a bit late but I posted a hub about it yesterday so thought I'd respond whilst it was fresh in my mind. I'm more into my scenery and history than theme parks and found the Eden Project pretty dull, except for the cafe!

    Anyway, here's the hub in case yo still need the inspiration:
