If you are travelling to the Tin Coast by car and starting your journey outside of West Cornwall, you’ll need to join the A30 westbound and follow it all the way down to Penzance. From here, join the A3071 to St Just. Alternatively if you are travelling to Pendeen or Morvah, from Penzance, join the A3071 to Newbridge then join the B3318 to Pendeen. Turn right on the B3306 and continue on to Morvah.
There are electric car charging points at Land’s End and multiple locations in Penzance.
Trewellard Garage between Pendeen and St Just is our local Petrol Station.
Both the National Trust and Geevor Tin Mine have parking for visitors (some locations carry parking charges). Botallack, Levant and Geevor are certainly best explored on foot, so park up, leave the car where it is and make a day of walking between to the three mining sites. The footpaths and trails are well maintained and relatively flat.
No overnight camping is permitted in car parks, roadsides or laybys anywhere on the Tin Coast, but we have plenty of campsites and low cost pop up sites in the summer that welcome vans, campers and mobile homes.
Catching the bus to the Tin Coast is one of the most sustainable ways of getting here and around. Basking in the coastal views aboard the open top Land's End Coaster is a day trip all of its own.
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.
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.
