Cornwall is a county in south-west England. Its mining and fishing industries have declined in recent years and tourism is now the major industry. The Eden Project is an environmental wonderland with its biomes full of exotic plants attracting thousands of visitors annually while Lands End is one of the most famous places in England. Its lighthouse, set on a small island off the coast, is also a spectacular attraction.
