Things to do...

Wherever you go in the area you are never far from the sea, so with great views, excellent eating places en route and fresh Atlantic air, a relaxing healthy walk is an ideal way to explore.

Set in gloriously wild, rugged and beautiful landscape this westerly tip of Cornwall has a concentration of quality scenery, wildlife, history and arts. You can have the experience of stepping back in time in the St Just Heritage Area.

Explore Geevor Tin Mine and, nearby, the Levant Mine with its working steam - powered beam engine. Travel further back in time by visiting ancient stones and the remains of iron age villages. If you are tracing your family history here, feel the timelessness of this fragment of the "real" Cornwall.
