Visiting Cornwall without a car?

Jump to last reply

We have about 4 days to ourselves after a business trip to London and think we'd love to see Cornwall, esp. Exeter and Penzance/St. Ives, but there's a lot in between we can't choose among. However, for reasons I don't want to go into, we will not be renting/driving a car.

So what would you recommend? Specifically: Should we stick to one place as base, or perhaps two (Exeter 1-2 nights, travel to Penzance or nearby for 2 nights) and then back to London to go home? Recommendations for lodging? -- obviously need to be handy to transport, however we do it. Are bus coach tours readily available and reasonably good way to do this - if you don't have the money for a private driver, which we don't?

Favorite/don't miss sights? We are ambulatory but hardly hikers - like scenic natural beauty, art, history, and science, so it's sort of all good.
