Today we are immersed in the beauty of Cornwall's west coast, free to drink in the spectacular golden sands and seascapes as we travel by train along the St Ives Bay Line. After free time in the picturesque town of St Ives, we continue by coach around Cape Cornwall, seeing legendary Land's End and Penzance, where romantic St Michael's Mount enchants from the sea.
