CORNWALL

Situated in the far south-western part of the UK, Cornwall is known for its ancient heritage, beautiful landscapes, rugged cliffs and golden sands. Its picturesque towns and fishing villages, magnificent public gardens (like the Lost Gardens of Heligan) and the stunning Eden Project (which houses a vast global garden within breathtaking space-age conservatories) adds up to a quite unique visitor experience.

The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth and the Tate Gallery in St. Ives are recent additions to Cornwall’s cultural heritage. It is a wonderful county to visit and an ideal situation for the International Male Voice Choral Festival. Truro, the County town has a superb Cathedral, elegant cobbled streets and Georgian town houses and is set at the head of the Truro river. Truro is Cornwall’s cultural, commercial and administrative centre and has excellent pedestrianised shopping. It boasts the Royal Cornwall Museum, and the Festival International Gala Concerts and the International Choral Competitions are held in the well-equipped Hall for Cornwall and historic Cathedral.

TRAVEL TO AND WITHIN CORNWALL

Travel to Cornwall by visiting choirs can either be by coach, train, air or car. For overseas choirs, regular cross-channel ferries operate into Dover approximately eight hours away by coach), the Eurostar or the Shuttle. Coaches can be arranged from these or any other arrival point (at choirs cost). Fights into the new Newquay Airport operate from London airports (City and Gatwick). Most other UK airports are served as well as Dusseldorf (Germany), Cork and Dublin (Ireland) and St. Brieuc (Normandy). Trains run regularly from all parts of England, Wales and Scotland.
