AS A VISITOR INFORMATION POINT FOR THE TIN COAST PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ASKING ME FOR MY PERSONAL RECOMMENDATIONS. THESE ARE THE THINGS WE ENJOY AND THINK YOU MGHT TOO!
OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS ARE AVAILABLE – THIS IS NOT AN EXHAUSTIVE LIST AND WE ALWAYS LIKE VISITOR FEEDBACK.
FOOD AND DRINK
For a takeaway lunch or dinner we go to THE SQUARE in St Just – or for a sit in meal we go to THE COOK BOOK or THE DOG AND RABBIT. If you fancy a pub meal try THE KINGS ARMS.
THE STAR – opposite the gallery – is a very local pub but has a particular atmosphere! Beware – if the landlord rushes out on his electric scooter – this means the fire engine has had a shout.
WALKS, ATTRACTIONS AND LANDMARKS
One of our favourite things to do is visit GEEVOR TIN MINE where the museum is a fascinating insight into the history of tin mining and the shop and cafe are pretty great too. Walk along the coast path to see THE CROWN MINES at Botallack..
You could carry on walking all the way to ST IVES or SENNEN COVE- but that is quite far!
Walk along to LEVANT MINE AND BEAM ENGINE to see the working engines. an excellent overview of the special features of this area can be found via THE TIN COAST PARTNERSHIP website.
Visit iconic CAPE CORNWALL and try the lovely cafe there.
Walk down COT VALLEY and see the amaszing round stones and watch the sunset over the BRISONS. The coast path connects all these sites.
One of the things people are always excited about is spotting our famous CORNISH CHOUGHS. They can be a bit elusive but I have seen them on the greens at the GOLF COURSE and all along the coast path at Botallack, Nanquidno, Sennen and beyond. The first thing you will notice is their distinctive call. There is no mistaking it, They often hang out in groups. Further information can be found at RSPB and CHOUGH WATCH.
The Tin Coast is very proud of being designated an official dark skies ares. We love being able to see the stars so clearly. Watch out for UFOs too.
