The centre of Marazion town is five minutes walk along the main road, beach or seafront. Here in Cornwall’s oldest charter town, there are several pubs, restaurants, shops and art galleries.
At low tide, you can walk over the beach and along the causeway to the off-shore island of St. Michael’s Mount or go by ferryboat.
Penzance is less than three miles away (a pleasant walk along the sands) offering many attractions to visitors; its tropical gardens are a delight.
Visitors can make day trips to the Isles of Scilly from Penzance by boat. The view of the cliffs on the Land’s End peninsula from the deck of the Scillonian III is a sight to be remembered.
St Ives, with its many beaches and the famous Tate Gallery, is just 8 miles away.
The granite cliffs of Lands’ End lie only 13 miles away, with countless coves and standing stones to be seen along the way, as well as the open air Minack Theatre and the picturesque harbour of Mousehole.
WALKS: There are many lovely walks, especially along the cliffs on the Cornish Coastal Path to Perranuthnoe, Prussia Cove, Praa Sands and Porthleven.
CYCLING: The Cornish Way cycle route runs alongside the park, providing an easy, flat ride into Penzance and further afield.
BIRDWATCHING: Birdwatchers will find much to interest them on the neighbouring RSPB Marazion Marsh reserve and on the foreshore.
