Go West – Penzance and beyond with Apollo Cornwall

Penzance is Britains most westerly major town, sitting in the shelter of Mounts Bay, it is perfectly situated to explore the wilds of West Cornwall.

Less than an hour by taxi from Newquay Airport, pre-booking is advised, Penzance is a bustling port, home to the famous Scillonian ferry taking both foot passengers and cargo to the Scillies.

Once you have explored the town, home to unique architecture and the beautiful Jubilee Pool, an Art-Deco saltwater lido and geothermal pool, take a private hire taxi to Marazion, where at low tide you walk the causeway to St. Michael’s Mount or be ferried across to the island on a small boat. After enjoying a drink and a meal while basking in breath-taking views of Mounts Bay, the balcony of The Godolphin is the perfect place at sunset, a taxi from Apollo Cornwall will return you quickly and hassle free to your accommodation.

Speaking of sunsets, why not visit The Minack Theatre, a spectacular open-air theatre cut into the cliffs overlooking Porthcurno Bay. The perfect setting to enjoy a performance while the sun sinks into the azure blue waters of the bay. Travel to the theatre in style with an executive private hire, enjoy a picnic and perhaps a bottle of fizz and avoid the hassle of navigating the narrow lanes bounded by Cornish hedges.

A taxi can be booked (parking here is very limited) for daytime visit to both the theatre, where you can take a tour or explore by yourself and Porthcurno village, home to Britains first submarine telegraph station now the award-winning Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. A short walk down to the beach is a must-do, considered one of the UK’s most beautiful beaches, it is also home to Seals and Basking Sharks have been spotted here.

A private tour with Apollo will take you into the beautiful countryside where you can explore Cornwalls pre-history, including mysterious stone circles and Chysauster Ancient Village, an Iron age settlement overlooking the sea. Plan a trip to Land`s End, taking a taxi to Britain’s most Westerly point, enjoying the views of the wild Atlantic and the awe-inspiring Longships Lighthouse. Walk the rugged cliffs, take binoculars and spot the wide array of wildlife, including the Cornish Chough, once extinct but now making a comeback in the area. Seals, Dolphins and Basking sharks can be seen in the waters below.
