Beyond St Ives

St Ives can be the perfect springboard into a wider experience of Cornwall. Visit the National Maritime Museum in nearby Falmouth to learn about Cornwall’s nautical past or King Henry VIII’s artillery fort at Pendents Castle. Venture further west along the Land’s End peninsula stopping at traditional Cornish villages including Zennor and Sennen Cove towards Land’s End, the end of the line, where the views of the wild Atlantic (and the Isles of Scilly on a clear day) will take your breathe away. Quaint Cornish fishing ports don’t come any prettier than Mousehole, lying within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The sea off the picturesque town of Porthleven, the most southerly port in Great Britain, was a particularly treacherous spot for wrecks in the days of sail and is well worth a visit. The quirky yet grand Chapel Street in Penzance, with its eccentric Egyptian House built in 1830 will surprise. Learn about the early days of global communication via undersea cables at the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. No trip to the far west of Cornwall would be complete without a trip to the Minack Theatre (May – September). Due to its stunning location jutting out into the sea atop high granite cliffs, it frequently appears on lists of the world’s most spectacular theatres.
