First of all, I do realize that this is a super busy tourist time in this area. I accept this and just keep making plans anyway since this is the time it fits into our schedules (University prof and high school teacher). I have read a few guide books and am very excited to explore an area that has a strong family connection since this is where my grandfather grew up. I do have a few questions for the forum.
- My sister and I generally prefer public transport only. I know many people feel that this a good area to rent a car, but that is not us. My impression is that Penzance is one location that would be a good base for public transport options. Is this correct? Is there another location that you would also suggest that be good for walking as well as public transport?
- Were there any locations that you particularly enjoyed or were pleasantly surprised at just how much you enjoyed visiting there?
Minnick Theatre, visiting a tin mine, walking part of the SW Coastal Path are already part of our plans.
- We also plan to visit Plymouth and Tyneham village on the way to Cornwall. These locations are also part of the family history. Any suggestions regarding public transport in those areas are also welcome.
