From Merlin to Doc Martin: A real-life travel guide to the best of England’s dramatic Cornwall – North Branch

What a shame that tourists who focus on London miss the rugged gem that awaits in Cornwall, England’s far west country bordered by the North Atlantic and the English Channel. Where so much water and land meet has given way to some of the most awesome coastline in the world, and has inspired Celtic legends such as King Arthur at Tintagel Castle. You may have already experienced a slice of Cornwall thanks to shows like PBS’s Doc Martin, and novelists like Daphne Du Maurier (Rebecca, Jamaica Inn), Winston Graham (Poldark series), and Rosamunde Pilcher (The Shell Seekers). Join Anglophile and former UK resident Claire Evans for a proper cup of tea, a slice of cake, and a lively discussion about this underappreciated English destination.
