A walk through history
Historical places located in breathtaking landscapes await those who are willing to walk the countryside. The relaxed vibe of the peninsula will inspire you to engage in many activities, and spend a day walking around with a list of landmarks in tow, such as Bodmin Jail. Some parts of the county are allotted explicitly for people of all ages who prefer to walk around. People say it is the best place to walk around in the United Kingdom.
If you are staying near the coastline, the South West Coast Path is an excellent place to start. Make sure to include walking along the 300-mile route in your outdoor holiday activities if you are keen on sightseeing. The path is not always easygoing, but the challenging parts are manageable. The path encompasses Morwenstow and Mt. Edgcumbe Country Park. This is not the only long-distance walking path to dig your heels into. Ask locals for places and recommendations.
While staying in the south-western aspect of Britain, it is advisable to explore places such as Tintagel Castle. Towering cliffs further strengthen its Arthurian mystic. Another essential coastal landmark is St. Catherine’s Castle, which Henry VIII built in 1536. If you are into architectural curiosities such as English fortresses, then include St. Mawed and Pendennis in the itinerary as well. The film-set quality of these locations is undeniable.
