Situated on the South-Western tip of England, Cornwall has over 500,000 inhabitants but only one city: Truro.
Cornwall's landscape is well known for its lengthy, varied coastline and sprawling moors, much of which is protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This combined with its mild temperature means that Cornwall attracts a huge number of tourists around the year, from all over the UK. In fact, tourism makes up an estimated 24% of Cornwall's GDP.
Historically Cornwall was famous for tin and copper mining, and while the presence of these have diminished over the years the fishing trade still runs strong. As a place untouched by the Romans, with its own (now largely defunct) language of Cornish, there still remains a strong sense of identity in the county, with some pushing for greater autonomy and recognition of the Cornish people as a national minority.
