Getting There

  • Train: To get to St Ives take the mainline train to Penzance and change at Hayle.
  • Bus: First Kernow buses run regularly to St Ives from Truro

Getting Back

  • Take the First Kernow bus number 41 from Porthcurno to Penzance. From Penzance you can take the train back to St Ives (via Hayle) or the First Kernow number 41 bus from Penzance bus station to St Ives.

En Route

Outside of the main town of St Ives there isn’t much to be had en route and you may find you need to head inland a mile or two to reach a village. I can recommend the Tinners Arms in Zennor (St Senara’s Church is worth a visit too) for a good cider and the cream teas at Rosemergy Barn (summer only).  There are convenience stores in Sennen (and a chip shop!) and some very touristy shops at Land’s End, where you may be able to pick up some water, as well as a couple of cafes in Porthcurno. For any more than that you’ll need to head inland.
