Day 4

After breakfast we make our way home. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, we continue homewards.


Penzance Bay has one of the mildest climates in the UK. One of the most striking things about the town is the abundance of palm trees and gardens full of sub-tropical plants, a sure sign that you have arrived somewhere unique. It is made even more special by the sight of St Michael’s Mount out to sea that seems to hover magically over the water. Wander the town’s streets and you’ll come also across art galleries, book sellers and new age shops which add a slightly bohemian feel to the town.


Porthleven exudes Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach at Porthleven is ideal for a relaxing holiday or visit of any kind. Porthleven has arguably the most impressive harbour in Cornwall, with construction commencing during Napoleonic times and some sources state that it was built with the aid of French prisoners of war. Small fishing boats land their daily catch in Porthleven, much of which is sold in Porthleven cafes and restaurants and the award winning Quayside fishmongers. The harbour was completed in 1825 and remains the bustling heart of this charming town along with its typical narrow streets, lined with fascinating shops, boutiques, bars, cafes and restaurants.


Truro is a beautiful city, with its uniqueness lying very much in its history. In the 19th and 20th centuries Truro was a very busy port and prior to that it had attracted wealthy merchants and bankers, who built fine houses, turning Truro into a fashionable place. Enjoy the interesting mix of specialist shops and stores set amongst its quaint, cobbled streets.
