St Just-in-Penwith, once the centre of the tin mining industry in this area, is the westerly most town in Cornwall, last stop before Lands End. Geevor Tin Mine was the last to close in 1991 and reopened in 1993 as a Museum and Heritage Centre, St Just has shops including two butchers, a bakery, a small supermarket and groceries, art galleries (including the brand new Jackson Foundation Gallery) and art galleries and a number of pubs, hotels and restaurants. At Lands End, the most South Westerly point of mainland Britain, sits many a tourist attraction. If you're lucky, of a clear evening, you will be able to see the stunning Isles of Scilly on the horizon.
Cape Cornwall, England's only Cape, rears 229 feet out of the Atlantic and offers spectacular views over the Western Approaches and Land's End. The Cape was acquired by the National Trust in 1987 to protect the area and its rare flora and fauna. Ornithologists can spot Cornish choughs, peregrine falcons, sparrow hawks and many other sea birds. Sheltered Priest's Cove with its rocky beach and sea pool, is within 5 minutes walking distance and is still used by local fishermen. The Cape was originally believed to be the Western most point of the mainland but usurped when accurate cartography proved this was in fact Lands End, a mere 4 miles South (and very slightly West!). There are many beautiful valleys leading to other coves and beaches in the area, all of which are accessible from the nearby Coastal path. Cape Cornwall tin mine was operated intermittently between 1838 and 1883 after which time it was closed, the 1864 chimney from the mine has been left as a navigational marker for shipping traffic and stands tall on the top of the Cape. The surrounding National Trust farm land has been converted into an 18 hole golf course with leisure facilities including an indoor swimming pool (although this is currently being renovated!). There is also a bar and dining room open to non-members. Weekly membership of the Golf and Leisure Club is available for visitors. Both Sennen Cove, with its long sandy surfing beach, and Land's End are within easy reach. St. Ives and the Tate Gallery are a short drive along the coast road through some of Cornwall's best moorland and Heritage tin mining areas.
From nearby Penzance you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. Slightly further afield is Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who reside at the property maintaining and working the grounds. Mousehole is renowned for their Christmas Lights display attracting many visitors throughout December. The Tate, St Ives a short drive away combined with the Barbara Hepworth Museum provide a benchmark for local galleries and artists, attracting many visitors to the area throughout the seasons.
