Cornwall  is a county in South West England, United Kingdom, on the peninsula that lies to the west of the River Tamar and Devon.

The administrative centre and only city is Truro. Cornwall is noted for its wild moorland landscapes, its extensive and varied coastline and its mild climate. Also notable is Cornwall's stone age and industrial archaeology, especially its historic mining landscape, a world heritage site. Tourism therefore forms a significant part of the local economy; however, Cornwall is one of the poorest areas in the United Kingdom with the lowest per capita contribution to the national economy.

Cornwall is the historic homeland of the Cornish people and is also considered one of the six historic "Celtic nations" by many residents and scholars. Some inhabitants question the present constitutional status of Cornwall, referring to the status of the Duchy of Cornwall, and a self-government movement seeks greater autonomy for the county.
