We start this tour in the Old town of Helston. Famous for its 'Furry Dance' or Flora dance in May, where the Town Band leads most of the towns folk, young and old, dancing around the town to celebrate the end of winter. Thousands of people come to watch from all over the world. After a wander round Helston we head down past RNAS Culdrose Navy air station and head onto the Lizard Penninsula.
We pass the huge satallite dishes of 'Goonhilly Earth Station' and head to our first fishing harbour of Coverack, where you can get out for a wander, then we head down the coast taking in the sites with optional stops on route until we get to Cadgewith. This picturesque village is set in a steep valley with mainly thatched cottages heading down to a cobbled beach with a busy fishing fleet and a couple of shops, cafes and a pub. It is arguably the prettiest village in Cornwall and a must for Artists and photographers.
Next we head down to Lizard village, a mix of shops, pubs and cafes, the most Southerly tip of the UK. We will take a walk down to Lizard point and enjoy some of the most spectacular cliff and sea views in Cornwall, as well as the famous Lizard Lighthouse and the beautiful Kynance cove. You can also sample some of the best Pasties in cornwall and Ann's Pasty shop, you might even get to see her making the next batch and pick up a tip or two!!
After leaving Lizard we start heading back to your accommodation with a few photo stops at Mullion Cove and through the Mining district of Camborne and Redruth.
