We visited Geevor on a lovely sunny winter's day. It was quiet but everything was open. One of the best days out we have experienced. The tour was really informative and our guide, Martin, had a wealth of knowledge having worked in the mine from...More

If you are interested in industrial heritage (which I am) then you will love this place. If you can, go out of season as you will be able to view the exhibits at your leisure and we even had a personal tour of the Mill...More
We went there on January 2019 and got a tour in the mine. The mine is such a great window in the past to see where people have been working till 30 years ago when it was closed. We were really impressed with the guides,...More
The history of this place pours out of every brick and timber.
Our guide worked in the mine, and his knowledge and passion brings the place to life.
We took his advice to visit the 'Dry' and are glad we did - it brings home...More

South West Coast Walk - St Ives to Falmouth - Contours (33 Replies)
Hi, I have booked a self guided walking holiday along the South West Coast Path with Contours from mid September 2016 for myself, husband and 14yo daughter. We are walking from St Ives to Falmouth over 10 walking days with an average walking day of about 16km. My previous experience with a self guided walk was undertaking one in the Cotswolds last November with Costwold Walks. Great enjoyable walk, but not the best time of year with most attractions closed and short days. I also wasn't...More

Weather could be almost anything bar snow and ice, and probably will be over the period of the holiday, and don't forget that that will include fog and wind. Atlantic gales could present particular hazards when following a coastal path, people do get blown into the sea from time to time in that area - and rarely survive. If you swim in the sea, be particularly careful and never ignore warning signs, many of the beaches can have significant and very dangerous undercurrents. Be careful about...More

We will be arriving at Heathrow on June 10, bus to Reading and take the train to St. Ives, arriving about 19:30, or maybe earlier depending on whether we take an earlier flight. June 11 will be looking around St. Ives and the Tate. I just want to walk around St. Ives and take a quick look at the Tate. I don't know much about art, just know what I like and modern art is a quick look for me. Late afternoon/evening we will take an Oats Travel tour to see "Tartuffe" at the Minack Theatre. ...More

Hi It sounds like a very interesting itinerary, it is shame you wont have longer down here, but it sounds like a working visit. June 11th sounds fine lets hope for good weather for your evening at the Minack, but it is wonderful even if the weather is not so great. Do wrap up warm as even in early June the temperature can drop quite cool after dark. June 12th The Bus Ride to Lands End is one of the most scenic in the country - it is often described as the Most Romantic road trip! You...More
