Days Out in Cornwall
Cornwall has always catered well for its visitors, but now is experiencing a boom of high quality establishments that meet the needs of international travelers and day trippers alike.

There is also a growing artistic community here. Cornwall has been a centre of the arts for many years, but now there are many new hubs of creative people emerging and developing. Places like St. Just and St. Agnes are bursting with arts and crafts, and there are also large exhibition spaces such as the Tate St. Ives and the Lemon Street Gallery in Truro.
