The picturesque town of Marazion has two beaches as well as the iconic St Michaels Mount which is well worth a visit. There are regular ferry trips across to the castle and gardens, alternatively visitors can reach the island via the historic cobbled causeway at low tide.

There are plenty of water sports and diving activities available, as well as fishing trips out to sea. Just a short distance away the town of Penzance has a large selection of shops and places to eat out. A famous landmark of the harbour is the Jubilee Pool, Britains largest seawater lido which has fantastic views out to sea and St Michaels Mount.

There are plenty of sandy beaches to choose from and coves to explore including Perranuthnoe, Praa Sands and Long Rock Beach. The fishing village of Mousehole is full of character and the small sheltered beach overlooking the harbour makes this an ideal family destination.

Geevor Tin Mine is one of the largest preserved tin mines in the country and has a museum with an underground tour. Family activities and a range of event programmes are available all year round. One of the great gardens of Cornwall; Trewidden Gardens has a beautiful 15 acre collection of trees and shrubs. A famous land mark of West Cornwall is the Minack, a stunning open air theatre carved into the cliff top and only 4 miles from Lands End which is another unique location with a variety of things to do for both adults and children alike.


Cornwall is the most western part of the South West of England and is a very popular holiday destination with its array of golden sand beaches and dramatic cliff top scenery. The Cornish peninsular is bordered by sea, north, south and west with just one (land based) entrance and exit route over the eastern border to Devon. Traditionally fishing, mining and agriculture were the mainstays of the local economy but tourism has since replaced these. Cornwall boasts thousands of acres of un-spoilt moorland protected as an area of outstanding natural beauty. All year round, the 630 miles of coastal walks (preserved in part by the National Trust and Duchy of Cornwall), are enjoyed by walkers of all ages. Cornwall is known for its mild climate giving rise to the plethora of botanical & specialist gardens like the Eden project, Trelissick and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. By escaping to Cornwall you can thoroughly immerse yourself in the many contrasts that draw visitors year after year. From the picturesque fishing villages steeped in history to the iconic Eden Project, looking to the future. Survey the changing landscape from moorland to the dramatic & varied Cornish coastline. Sample the freshest gourmet offerings from the abundance of local produce or simply find a quiet spot and unwind with a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream! Wherever you choose to hang up your boots, you will never be far from the sea.

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
