St Just, Penzance TR19 7QQ, UK
One of the most stunning awe inspiring places I've ever seen. Not for the faint hearted and you need to be as sure footed as a mountain goat to truly feel the force of the ocean crashing against the rocks below the cliff top mine. A marvellous spot for the keen photographer, and the path won't be there much longer, so go before the sea claims it if you want to capture it.
Always wanted to visit these famous mines. Lovely windswept and derelict buildings and workings, a short walk along the cliffs takes you to the wonderful steam engine at the Levant mine. Good parking at both spots.
Wonderful coastal walks through tin mining history. Delightful light refreshments and knowledgeable staff who are keen to help and enlighten. Be warned though that the approach to the car park is very uneven.
Often missed by visitors to Lands End but this remarkable place shows one of the many things that makes Cornwall famous. Very reasonable car parking charge and a small but well kept and run cafe serving light snacks and drinks. Toilets on site. Disabled access is very limited but the views from the top are breathtaking. Many old ruins and works from the mining. Take care with children and pets as there are no fences from the cliff edges.
Lovely place to take a walk, full fascinating of history and the filming place for some of the Poldark season's. Look out for the memorial plaque nr Wheel Owl for the miners who died down there when the mine was flooded. It's now maintained by national trust so free parking for members.
