We make our way to Marazion, Cornwall's oldest chartered town where you have the opportunity to photograph St Michael's Mount or discover the quaint streets, lined with ancient cottages and merchants' houses. We continue to St Ives with a host of independent shops, galleries and cosy pubs.
Porthcurno & Land's End Landmark
This morning we make our way to Porthcurno where the golden sandy beach and blue waters hide an amazing secret. Right beneath your feet, messages from all corners of the globe have been buzzing through undersea cables since 1870. We make a visit to the Telegraph Museum where we can discover the hidden history, explore new interactive exhibitions and live demonstrations that bring the communication story to life. Explore the underground World War 2 wartime tunnels and experience the sights and sounds of a working telegraph station. We then continue to Land's End to admire the spectacular scenery, be sure to enjoy the pay-as-you-go attractions. Whether you're starved of heritage or hungry for new experiences, quench your thirst for adventure and follow in the footsteps of nineteenth century visitors who would travel to The First & Last Inn before making the final stage of the journey to 'Penn-an-Wlas' [Land's End in Cornish] on horseback or foot along the narrow lanes.
Departing our hotel after breakfast, we make our way back to the local area.
