First visit to West Cornwall

I am staying in Penzance from 28th September for 5 nights with a coach party. As part of the visit I will be taken to St Ives and Falmouth, but would like to visit Lands End and the Lizard also, can this be done using the bus service? Are there any other towns/places that I should see?

Am staying in Newquay next March so will visit St Austell, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden project then.

Thank you mcclaryanna for your reply, exactly the info I was after.

I have never posted a question before despite the many UK places I have visited and am amazed at all the responses, so many thanks to all. I will post a review on my return.

Reading this post has been a big help to me as I am beginning to plan at quick trip to West Cornwall for next June. We will only have 3-4 days before we have to be back in Bath to start our tour.

Any other advice from any of you so knowledgeable travelers? I am thinking of staying in either Penzance, St. Ives, or Mousehole, but would love any suggestions as to lodging, sights, food...as of right now we will be using public transportation.

Thanks for any help that comes my way.

If you're using public transport then Penzance has an advantage over the other two as there is more of it. It isn't as picturesque as the other two but there are still some lovely buildings and lots of places to eat and drink.

What sort of things do you want to do?
