Welcome to Southeast Cornwall
Cornwall's southeastern corner presents yet another side to the county, neither as blustery and beachy as the north coast, nor as wild and craggy as the west. It's closer in feel to the area around the Fal River, a landscape characterised by gentle bays and clifftop fields, but it has its fair share of quaint old fishing ports too, of which Mevagissey, Polperro and Looe are the prettiest examples. The area also has two major river estuaries to explore, the Fowey and the Tamar, prime territory for kayaking and country walks, as well as a little-explored peninsula that's home to some of the county's grandest country houses.
But there's one sight here that no one should miss - the sci-fi biomes of the fabulous Eden Project, raised from the dust of a disused Cornish clay pit and now one of the county's most iconic sights.
