SW England

Jump to last reply

My sister and I will be visiting England in late April next year. We will fly into London, stay overnight and then take the train to Bath where we'll stay one night. We were thinking of taking the train from Bath to Penzance and staying three days before training it back to London for the flight home. I've heard that getting to Penzance from Bath on the train will mean changing trains more than once and maybe using local trains. Does anyone know how difficult it will be to take this route?

We're open to suggestions as to where to base ourselves for our three days. We want to go up and down the west coast (St Michael's Mount, Tintagle, and and other interesting places along the way.) Is Penzance just too far south to make it a realistic base for us?

We've never been to this part of England so any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
