Help us with congestion and the clogging of cars on our narrow roads by using your car (van, camper or motorhome) as little as possible.

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.

If you are staying overnight then we would encourage you to leave your car at your accommodation and explore on foot, by bike, taxi or bus.


Car Parking

Car Park's and spaces in St Just and Pendeen are limited. Please be considerate of our local residents who travel in from remote areas who rely on there being spaces available for doctor appointments, visiting the library, doing their weekly shopping and picking up essentials.

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.
