It's one of my favorite place in England. You can reach it by bus, train or car, the journey, if you are in Bristol or London, it will take a bit of your time, but it's worth, I promise you.
It's a small village near Penzance and Land's End, it has wonderful shores where you can have a nice picnic or a relaxing day on the beach. Lot's of people come around to surf or to windsurf.
There are few places where you can eat and I suggest you to try the Philips Bakery, it's one of the best place where you can try the Cornish Pasty.
The Godolphine, a pub in the center, it's the perfect place for a Sunday Roast or for a bear while you're watching the sunset.

This seaside market town is Cornwall's oldest town, and is most famous for being the base to visit St Michael's Mount, however, the town itself is also interesting to visit, as well as a great place for a spot of cream tea!
Unfortunately there is no longer an active market here, but there is a small market held every second Wednesday at the Marazion Community Centre.

Marazion is an ancient Cornish town, situated on the mainland where the causeway leads out to St Michael’s Mount. It’s a lovely town in its own right, with interesting little shops, teahouses, and a good sandy beach to enjoy. The town’s position in Mount’s Bay is a bonus, as you’ve always got the view out to the island. A perfect spot to just enjoy yourself and properly relax.

With St Michael's Mount Marazion with its long sandy beach is a great place to spend the day. Catch the boat at high tide to the Mount or walk the cobbled causeway at low tide and explore the gardens and castle. A bustling little village with a good selection of restaurants.
