The far West of Cornwall is dotted with the remnants of the tin mining industry. Geevor tin mine at Pendeen is well worth a visit as is the restored beam engine at the Levant mine at Botallack which steams daily during the summer and is lovingly maintained by the National Trust. You'll also hear the tale of the terrible tragedy at the mine that shook Cornwall.
If you bring your dog, or if you are a rambler, you will find numerous byways and footpaths to explore. Also, there is the South West coast path which is easily accessible from St, Just. From there, the walk to Lands End is breathtaking. Alternatively, you could walk to St. Ives and pass Clodgey point, where many a ship was wrecked in fog and renowned locally as the inspiration for John Carpenter's "The Fog".
Of course, you couldn't come to Cornwall without sampling the miner's lunch .... the pasty. ;)
St. Just is often described as the last true Cornish town. It's welcoming to holidaymakers, but still retains its true Cornish character. It may also be called the last town in England, because of its proximity to Lands End. Beaches at Sennen Cove or St. Ives can be reached by car or open top bus (summer only). For those prepared to use their feet, the beach at Portheras Cove can be reached via the South West coast path in the direction of Pendeen. It's more than worth the walk!
