Stretch of coast labelled 'most magical place in Britain' thanks to giants, fairies & hidden treasure | The Sun

A STRETCH of the Cornish coast has been described as the "most intensely magical place in the British Isles" by a travel expert.

The Penwith Peninsula lies at the tip of Cornwall and has a history shrouded in legends, myths and folklore.

In his book, Magical Britain, Rob Wildwood describes the peninsula as one of the "most intensely magical places in the British Isles" thanks to its legendary tales.

In years gone by, Penwith is said to have been occupied by a race of giants who threw rocks and boulders onto the Cornish hills to create the ruggish landscape.

The rock formations were also believed to be the homes of fairy folk, known as Spriggans, who were said to have terrified travellers.

Set near the village of Treen in Cornwall in the Penwith Peninsula, are the Logan Stones, a group of boulders that are thought to have magical, healing, properties.
