The county of Cornwall is on the southwestern rugged tip of England, bathed by the Celtic Sea to the north and west, and by the English Channel to the south, it is bounded by the county of Devon and the River Tamar to the east. Cornwall has to show enchanting towns, picturesque villages, and resorts along the striking coastal landscapes, splendid sandy beaches, and nature reserves including the Roseland Heritage Coast, to where King Harry Ferry will take you across the River Fal, just south of the capital city Truro. The Isles of Scilly are part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
