Top Tips

Plan your day: It’s best to plan how long you think you’ll spend in each location, so you can match up with the train times. Save or print a timetable (handy in case mobile signal is patchy). It’s best to call pubs in advance to check details haven’t changed, and to let them know if you’re with a large group. Large parties should also fill in GWR’s group travel form.

Buying your ticket: Get an Off-Peak Day Return ticket between Penzance and St Ives (£4.00). This lets you hop on and off (as long as you continue in the same direction of travel). There’s no need to buy early (it’s the same price on the day). In a group? Ask for the GroupSave discount on GWR trains to get a third off.

Lelant is a request stop
Please note that Lelant station is a request stop. To alight here, please ask the conductor. To get back on, signal to the driver as the train approaches.

Get your sheet stamped: Before you set off, print a stamp sheet for each member of your party. Get it stamped at each participating pub. With 8 stamps send off for your free T-shirt.

Take it easy: Each trail is intended to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace and not all in one day. Please drink responsibly and respect your fellow pub goers and pub staff.
