The Tamar Valley, Cornwall, a video guide…

Visit Cornwall have produced a short video guide to The Tamar Valley in Cornwall, a wide wooded river valley.

Reaching from Bodmin Moor to Dartmoor, from the beaches of East Cornwall, to the towns of West Devon, the area is dotted with ancient mines, Tudor houses, stunning gardens, and rivers.

You’ll find fishing, mining heritage, sailing, gardens, art, canoeing, and eating out all along the River Tamar, from North Cornwall down past Plymouth to the Rame Peninsula.


Tell us your River Story...

From Roman times to the present day, Westcountry rivers have been an ever-present thread running through our communities, our culture and our heritage. Ever increasingly, we have come to realise how wonderful it is to spend time on, in or near a river and they are so often the backdrop to our fondest memories of days spent outdoors, being active and spending time with nature.
