St Michael’s Mount is a beautiful tidal island 500 metres off the mainland that can be accessed by rocky cobbled causeway or boat. First monastery, then a fort, this visitor attraction is now a Cornwall iconic castle. Call in and see the lovely gardens with brilliant agaves, aloe, lillies and more. Closed on Sunday. Caravan parking nearby.
Explore the remains of another of Cornwall’s most famous castles when visiting what is said to be the birthplace of King Aurthur, Tintagel Castle. Explore the gardens with plants, flowers, birds and wildlife or take a walk on the sandy beach below. Book tickets ahead here as there are only a limited number of walk-up tickets sold daily.
Quite unique is the Minack Theater where performances include concerts, musicals, drama, theater, opera and children’s storytelling. This quirky open air theatre was carved into a giant granite cliff by a young woman during the 1930’s and expanded upon in the subsequent years. You can visit when there are no other events occuring and walk around and look at the spectacular view. Park your caravan and then take a bus the short trip up the hill to the theater to avoid the narrow roads.
