It is a county with a rich cultural history that is not well-known outside of the United Kingdom.
As you travel around the county, you will see clues to its important past as one of the most important regions in the world for the mining of tin at the start of the industrial revolution.
As well as mining, the coastal location of Cornwall has given it an important maritime history linked to exploration, fishing and pirates!
Much of this has been captured in TV series like Poldark and by famous writers such as Daphne du Maurier and Rosamund Pilcher.
While tin mining and piracy may have disappeared into history and legend, the stories and relics are alive and well and will be brought to life during your time studying with us at Language Tree.
The modern county of Cornwall is an exciting and vibrant county with a huge variety of great things to do.
