Cornwall (Kernow in Cornish, Cernyw in Welsh) is a region situated in South Western England. Is it, in fact, a peninsula surrounded by the Celtic Sea in the North and West, by Devon county in the East and the English Channel in the South. Over the years, the Cornish economy has transferred from tin and copper mining to traditional fishing and agriculture. It was only in the 20th century that the importance of tourism started growing, along with the building of railways.
Cornwall is a Celtic nation, and it is known for the moorland scenery, long coastline (about 300 miles), picturesque villages.
