Three of the most popular attractions around Penwith in West Cornwall have formed a new relationship with a bus service, leading to a move which could attract even more tourists to get out and explore the region during their Cornwall holidays this summer.
Sure to be a memorable day out for tourists, the 300 Cornwall Explorer is a special hop-on-hop-off open top bus service which stops directly outside many of the key sights of the area. Starting from Penzance and travelling a full loop around the coast, it gives passengers the chance to discover areas of outstanding natural beauty such a Land’s End, Sennen Cove, Marazion and the delightful St Ives.
As part of the deal, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, Geevor Tin Mine and Penlee House are now working alongside First Devon and Cornwall, the operators of the 300 Cornwall Explorer, to offer passengers discounted entry to the attractions. Passengers who buy an unlimited travel ticket are able to save 10% on entry to the aforementioned attractions, an initiative which is sure to be taken advantage of by many visitors on their cottage holidays throughout the coming months.
Tourism is a fantastic source of income for the local economy of Penwith, an area regarded as one of the most popular in Cornwall following the impressive haul of tourism awards it has received over the past year. The three attractions mentioned were among the big winners in this year’s Cornwall Tourism Awards, with Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, Geevor Tin Mine and Penlee House winning Gold, Silver and Bronze respectively.
