Here at Best Days Out Cornwall, we work with almost forty of Cornwall’s top attractions – many of them based on or near to the South West Coast Path. Why not stop off for lunch at one of the attractions? Or better still, make one of them your final destination on your walk and enjoy a unique end to your hike?
From a swim in the geothermal pool at Jubilee Pool in Penzance to exploration of underground mines at Geevor Tin Mine, from the majestic jewel of St Michael’s Mount to the legendary Tintagel Castle, we’ve put together a list of unique additions to your walk.
The longest of England’s National Trails, the multi award-winning South West Coast Path offers 630 miles (1,014 km) of stunning coastal walking around the entire South West peninsula.
Starting at Minehead in Somerset it runs along the coastline of Exmoor, continuing along the coast of North Devon into Cornwall. It follows the entire coastline of Cornwall, goes across the mouth of the River Tamar and continues into Devon. After running along the south coast of Devon it then follows the Dorset coastline before finally ending at Poole Harbour.
In addition to the South West Coast Path, Cornwall is also home to the beautiful Camel Trail – running from Padstow to Bodmin,it offers spectacular views of moorland, woodland and estuary and is used by walkers, joggers, cyclists and horse-riders.
