Places to visit in and around St Ives Cornwall

Situated in the west of Cornwall and in a bay that has three miles of golden sand making some of the best beaches in the world. With the rugged north coast of Cornwall to its east and the well known and treacherous cliffs of the St Just Peninsula leading to Lands End gives the tourist an ample selection for sight seeing and adventure.

Penzance about 12 miles away provides a gateway to the Scilly Isles by Helicopter or boat. A frequent train service running form St Ives joins the main Penzance to London Paddington service which passes through numerous towns in Cornwall, so places like Truro are not far away, in fact the whole of Cornwall can be covered in just over two hours.
