A Visual Journey Of West Cornwall's Iconic Sights


This tour captures the highlights of West Cornwall, from the stunning St Michael's Mount dominating Mount's Bay to the far western tip of Cornwall at Lands End, then to the rugged North Coast, many consider this area as the 'real Cornwall'.
Steeped in history and legend, with turquoise seas crashing against granite cliffs, West Cornwall has a unique beauty and timeless charm.

This tour offers a real insight into the fascinating history of Cornwall from the ancient fishing village of Marazion to the timeless beauty of Cape Cornwall.
With a perfect combination of dramatic cliffs taking the fury of the Atlantic Ocean, golden and white sandy beaches as well as the haunting remains of human endeavours in the tin mining industry, this tour has something for everyone.

Itinerary

Pick up from your accommodation after breakfast and head straight to Marazion with views to St Michael's Mount. Opportunity to stop for photos.

We then head to the charming, tiny fishing village of Mousehole and stop for a stroll around the picturesque harbour, maybe having a look at a shop or two.

Then it's onto the Minack Theatre, we can have a wander around this spectacular amphitheater and learn more about Rowena Cade, the amazing lady who built it.

We can stop for a light lunch at a small cafe near Land's End before heading to either the Land's End attraction or, if you'd prefer, the 'local's Land's End' at Cape Cornwall.

The abandoned mines at Botallack (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) are next up, we can walk around the ruins and imagine how life would have been for the Cornish Tin Miners hundreds of years ago.

Finally we will take the breathtaking road to St Ives, with stunning views across ancient fields with patchwork hedges onto the Atlantic Ocean.

I will then return you to your accommodation.
