A Beautiful, Unique Location
The gorgeous rugged coastline of Cornwall is quite magical. The amazing sandy beaches provide brilliant water sports for the adventurous, from surfing to sailing, or simply a great place to relax with a book. The rocky coves and caves are home to stories of smugglers and shipwrecks and the coastal paths provide mile upon mile of wonderful walks with truly spectacular scenery around every corner.
The Cornish coastline has a fascinating Maritime history and there are many attractions which give a great insight into this. The Lizard Lighthouse, and Lifeboat Station, Godrevy Lighthouse (the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse) and The Maritime Museum at Falmouth which is well worth a visit.
Cornwall is also the home and the inspiration for many artists and Sculptors both past and present. St Ives, as well as being a pretty fishing cove, is historically a home for artists and especially now with the opening of the Tate Gallery in the town.
Cornwall offers many boat trips and river trips to appreciate the landscape. The Helford River with the famous Frenchmans Creek and the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek is a particularly enjoyable trip.
Also enjoy beautiful historical buildings, such as Castle Drogo and Pendennis Castle, and magical tropical gardens such as the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah.
No trip to the Southwest is complete without a visit to the World famous Eden Project a real adventure and great educational experience for students of all ages.
Travelling to and Getting Around Cornwall
Although at the far south west tip of the Britain, Cornwall still has good transport links which make it accessible to travellers in the UK and Europe:
- Airports. The region has a number of airports that has International and UK routes including Exeter Airport, Newquay Airport and Bodmin Airport.
- Trains. The UK rail network runs regular trains between London and Cornwall with a journey to Falmouth taking approximately 5 hours.
- Cars. Cornwall is very accessible by car with the motorway and dual carriageway network covering much of the journey. However it is worth noting that as you travel through Devon and Cornwall you will be travelling on smaller, slower roads and this will increase your journey time.
- Coaches/Buses. National Express operate coach services across the UK and will be a cheaper way to travel over longer distances than train or car. Locally you will find good bus services throughout Cornwall which makes it easier to get to all the towns and attraction of note.
Homestays in Cornwall
All of our programmes are built around family homestays, which is where the student stays with their tutor or a host family during their stay. This gives the student a comfortable, friendly, home away from home for their stay. Find out more about our homestay accommodation.
Our host families are based in the popular coastal areas of St Austell and Falmouth on the southern edge of Cornwall. This is a very pretty area of Cornwall and is a great base to explore both of the Cornish coasts and the many attractions the region has to offer.
