There is something very special about Kynance Cove. With its white sand and beautiful scenic views, it is widely regarded as one of the best beaches in Britain. The water is as blue as the Caribbean and the cliffs are made up of red and green serpentine rocks. Truly stunning.
St Ives is one of the most picturesque seaside towns in the UK. It has been voted one of TripAdvisor’s top 10 European beaches. Take a leisurely stroll through the traditional cobbled streets and see the independent shops and fisherman’s cottages in the heart of town. Or take the chance to visit the Tate Gallery or the Hepworth Museum.

ROSEMUNDE PILCHER FILM LOCATIONS:
Much of the filming of the popular German television series of Rosamunde Pilcher‘s works took place in the beautiful county of Cornwall in England. If you are looking to visit some of these filming sites then you have come to the right place. Land’s End, Penzance, St Ives, Mounts Bay and the Lizard Peninsula have often featured in the series and Meneage Tours can cover them! We can even take you to Rosemunde Pilcher’s birthplace in Lelant.
The Minack is a unique theatre perched on the cliffs high above the Atlantic ocean. One of the world’s most famous outdoor theatres, it was lovingly carved into the rock by Rowena Cade and her gardener, Billy Rawlings, in 1931-1932 for local drama enthusiasts. Over the past 80 years, the theatre has evolved into today’s professionally-equipped venue which brings the very best amateur and professional theatre to the far west of Cornwall.
ST MICHAEL’S MOUNT:
A St Michael’s Mount visit is not to be forgotten. Walk over the causeway at low tide, or cross by boat. Explore the sub-tropical gardens and medieval pathways of the tiny harbour and village. Climb up to the castle (look out for the Giant’s heart!) for the most amazing views of Mounts Bay and immerse yourself in the tales of this legendary family home.
