The ancient Tinners Way starts at Cape Cornwall and leads over quiet moorland to St Ives, following the tracks of the tin transporters of the Bronze age.

Discover stone circles, dolmens and the enigmatic healing stone Men-an-Tôl. Walk on ancient paths from holy hilltops to hidden wishing-wells and fogous.

Experience a special quality of colour and light attracting artists from all around the world for more than a century. Their works can be admired at many galleries, especially at the Tate, Barbara Hepworth Museum (St Ives), Penlee House (Penzance) and The Newlyn Art Gallery.

We highly recommend a visit to the Minack Open Air Theatre, built by Rowena Cade in the cliffs above Porthcurno. Or visit one of the famous Cornish gardens like Trengwainton, Trewidden, Trebah or the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Take advantage of the quieter times from autumn onwards to discover deserted coves, find your own little beach or have the ancient places to yourself. This part of Cornwall is famous for its rare fauna and flora, and is designated as an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”.
