Explore the South West

Be re-invigorated by the Cornish sea breeze. From Penzance, why not stroll across to St. Michaels Mount, or take a dip in the new geothermal pool. Or jump on an open-top bus and enjoy the surrounding beaches, towns, and villages. If you’re after some culture, perhaps St. Ives, with Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Tate St. Ives, is for you.

For music lovers and surf boarders, a highlight is the annual Boardmasters Festival at Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay.

And, don’t forget, Cornwall is the perfect place to find locally made gifts and produce like tasty Cornish pasties and clotted cream. 

The Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly are like nowhere else in England. Outstandingly beautiful, uncrowded, and unspoilt, they lie just off the coast of Cornwall but seem like a world apart.  

Sail to the beautiful Isles of Scilly by Scillonian ferry from Penzance or fly from Land’s End with Skybus. To book our exclusive package, including return train travel to Penzance station, call us 03457 000 125.

Isles of Scilly Travel run a bus transfer between Penzance station and Land’s End Airport. It takes about 20 minutes, costs £7 each way when you board and is designed to coincide with your flight.

At the station
