Mousehole – For History Buffs
On the southern coast of Cornwall lies the idyllic fishing village of Mousehole. The village is said to be named after a large cave, which is located about 150 metres south of the village centre. In the charming core, small stores, galleries and restaurants are lined up in narrow streets. The fishing harbour is one of the oldest in Great Britain. History buffs can visit the only house in the village that did not burn down after the Spanish raid of 1595.
Polperro – The former Smuggler's Nest
What makes this fishing village on the southeast coast of Cornwall so special is its smuggling past. The peak of this shady business was reached in the late 18th century, when Great Britain was at war with America and France. You can learn more about it at the "Polperro Museum of Smuggling and Fishing". If you get hungry and thirsty during your visit, stop off at The Three Pilchards, the oldest pub in town, serving freshly caught fish and other delicacies.
