A lot of rock concerts take place here during the summer months, and you can also enjoy ice-skating in winter.

St Michael’s Mount

St Michael’s Mount is a small tidal island located in Mount’s Bay. You can access the island from the town of Marazion on foot by a man-made causeway. This medieval monastery has been restored to show the ways of living on the Mount in the 17th century. You can visit the chapel to stare at its beautiful stained glass, or spend some relaxing time in the seaward gardens. The incredible vistas of the surrounding waters that you can experience from the top of the Mount is truly a breathtaking experience.

It is one of those places where you can just step back in time. This breathtaking place is just perfect if you want to spend some relaxing time in Cornwall away from the crowd. The unspoilt and pristine fishing village truly looks like an artist’s work. The cottages cling to the steep hillsides, giving way to some of the most incredible views of the surrounding land and the sea. You will also get to explore several art galleries in the village, selling works by local artists.
