We only did a short section of the walk today from Mousehole to Penzance. It is mostly pavement, then cycle route, roads and sweeping promenade at Newlyn to Penzance. Varied and scenic walk, nice and flat, recommend.

Nice walk with the kids. Did the coast section as the return route. Kids found it interesting. Recommend taking a OS map with you. Just to make sure to don’t stray from footpaths

Have walked this many times over the years, in all weathers. It is always wild and beautiful. Wear good sturdy shoes and take rain gear.

Walked from St Ives to Penzance end July/early August 2017. The first stage to Zennor was very difficult. Climbing over bolders, finding your way through the bushes... but is was so beautiful that you forget your aching knees and feet. Second stage from Zennor to...More
