Our local bus services are operated by ‘Transport for Cornwall’ who operate Route 8 and Route 18 and also First Bus – ‘Cornwall by Kernow’ who operate a scenic circular route on the Land’s End Coaster and the more direct route to our World Heritage Mining sites via the Tin Coaster.
If you’d like all your travel planning done for you The Traveline South West Journey Planner is the best way to plan your trip using both buses and trains from anywhere in the UK.
With routine train services arriving into Penzance from as far afield as Glasgow and London and more locally from Plymouth and Truro you can reach the Tin Coast from Penzance by bus, taxi or even bike. After all, it's all part of the adventure.
On the Tin Coast our roads are narrow and windy. Take care, slow down, give cyclists, walkers and horse riders ample space and always expect the unexpected around every turn and bend. Better still plan for car free travel wherever possible.
By Ferry or Fly
The Tin Coast is the perfect place to stay before hopping onto a plane or boat and retreating into island life on the Isles of Scilly. And, with UK and International visitors touching down at Newquay Airport here is how to find your way to our warm West Cornwall welcome.
