Penzance Weekend – 4th to 7th May 2018 ***UPDATE - THIS WEEKEND IS NOW FULLY BOOKED***
 
Penzance, which is Cornish for "holy headland", is situated on St. Mount's Bay on the South coast of Cornwall.  It's at the end of the railway line from Paddington, about 5½ hours travelling time.  There are plenty of hotels and B&B's, including some on the seafront, and lots of great pubs and places to eat.
 
Saturday 5th May
South West Coast Path walk – 12  miles
We'll catch a bus from Penzance to Porthcurno, home of the open-air Minack Theatre on the cliffs high above the sea.  Then we'll follow the coastal path back to Penzance via Lamorna, Mousehole and Newlyn.  Expect a lot of ups and downs!
 
Sunday 6th May
Cornish Coast to Coast – 13 miles
We'll leave Penzance on the coastal path and soon pick up the St Michael's Trail cross country to Carbis Bay on the North coast, and then a couple more miles on to St Ives.  Options to drop out at Carbis Bay or continue on to the end of the St Michael's trail at Lelant Saltings.  Trains and buses back to Penzance from all three finishes.  Plenty to see in St Ives including the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.  Also good pubs and restaurants.
 
We may swap Saturday and Sunday’s walks depending on the summer bus timetable.
 
Monday 7th May
Marazion & St Michael's Mount
An optional and flexible walk depending on what trains people are catching back.  It's only an hour or so walk along the seafront to the pretty Marazion, where there are pubs and cafes.  Those going home late afternoon Monday or staying until Tuesday should have time to visit St Michael's Mount.  You can walk across the causeway at low tide, but have to get a boat at other times.  Bus or walk back from Marazion to Penzance.

Everyone needs to book their own transport and accomodation.
