About the Tamar Valley

The Tamar Valley is an area rich in beauty and history, possessing some of the finest scenery in the British Isles. The valley of the River Tamar – and its tributaries, the Tavy and Lynher – is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and much of the area forms part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

The Tamar Valley offers a unique combination of breathtaking natural beauty, history and industrial heritage. Quiet villages, bustling towns full of quirky shops, beaches, moors, ancient harbours, magnificent industrial heritage and quiet country walks can all be found within a few short miles of the river.
