Top 10 Recommended Views in Cornwall


Views in Cornwall
Clearly, a tricky list to compile. Having researched and photographed the county for years now, we're aware of the thousands of exceptional views on offer within Cornwall. Our 'Top 10 Recommended Views in Cornwall' list should, therefore, be read as an introduction to all the amazing views the county provides. Given that PictureTheUK is built around photographs and images, we'd suggest you browse our Cornwall attractions for inspiration. In addition, look at our other 'Top 10' lists for ideas.

St Michael's Mount

On the south coast of Cornwall across the water from Marazion and part of Mounts Bay. Stunning. In the area, we'd also recommend the view from Minack Theatre down to Porthcurno Beach.

Trevose Head

On one side is the dramatic Mother Ivey's Bay and on the other the beautiful Booby's Bay. To the north is the Camel Estuary which has equally as beautiful views.

The Crowns Tin Mine

South of St Ives Bay and on the South West Coast Path. The view is wonderful and the buildings are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

St Ives Bay

The marketing people for Cornwall say it's the most beautiful bay in the world. The view from Godrevy Point looking south is special. St Ives itself is a beauty.

Calstock Viaduct

In the Tamar Valley AONB. The view from Calstock looking towards the viaduct to the Cotehele National Trust property is first class.

Rough Tor

Extraordinary rock formations with panoramic views of Bodmin Moor and this area in Cornwall.

St Mawes Harbour

Walk from St Mawes Castle towards the village. Choose any view on your way. Superb.

Cawsand, Cornwall

Not well known. Over on the Cornwall/Devon border looking out across the Plymouth Sound. There's another spectacular view to the west along the massive Whitsand Bay.

Perran Beach

Specifically, on the headland that splits the beach in two at high tide. The view north along the sand and cliffs remains a highlight of years of research.

Whitesand Bay

Close to Land's End. The view from any point along the South West Coast Path here is awesome.
