Tour Details

This evocative tour will take us to the far West of Cornwall, through ancient landscapes dotted with granite tors, standing stones and old mine engine houses. Granite cliffs with white sandy coves give the sea a turquoise colour and a unique atmosphere to this very special area.

There is too much to see here in one day so we invite you to choose from the locations below.

St Michael’s Mount

We will start the day at Marazion, an ancient fishing village with spectacular views across to St Michael’s Mount. We can visit the Mount but need to allow 2-3 hours to do so. Well worth a visit or maybe just some photographs from Marazion, the choice is yours. From here we will drive right around Mount’s Bay, through Penzance and Newlyn.

Mousehole

A tiny, picturesque fishing village with old cottages built around a sandy harbour. We can drive through or stop for a while if you wish.

Minack Theatre

The world famous open air theatre, created by Rowena Cade, perches on the cliffs above the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It never fails to impress those who visit, great photo opportunities here and around the corner to Porthcurno and Pedn Vounder.

Sennen Cove

Right next to Land’s End, Sennen Cove is a combination of a long, sandy beach and small working fishing harbour. This is Cornwall’s most westerly surfing beach with Atlantic rollers crashing onto the sand.

Land’s End

I usually suggest an unspoilt alternative to Land’s End itself although a visit to the attraction here is easily done.

Cape Cornwall

From here you have a great view across to Land’s End while enjoying the unspoilt headland with it’s monument from Heinz perched on the top. There is a great little walk here with spectacular views around the coast.

Botallack

The iconic Crown mines have featured in the Poldark TV series and have a fascinating history. We can explore the area and imagine how life would have been for the Cornish miners and their families

Levant mine

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the world’s only Cornish beam engine, still operated by steam in it’s original site.

A great place to learn more in depth about Cornwall’s mining heritage.

Zennor

The drive from Levant mine to St Ives has been described as one of the most scenic in Britain, it will take us to Zennor where we can visit the tiny church there and discover the tale of the Mermaid of Zennor.

St Ives

This ancient fishing town is now a bustling and characterful place to visit. Home to the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum and with a beautiful sandy harbour. We can either drive around, taking in the highlights or make a stop for a more explorative visit.

We can stop for lunch half way through the day at a venue to suit your taste and budget.

We will also be driving by Rosemergy, with their exceptional Cornish Cream Teas. Highly recommended!
