You don’t need a car to have a coastal adventure in Penzance. This gentle 2.7-mile walk from Penzance to Marazion follows the recently upgraded coast path and enjoys views across Mount’s Bay to St Michael’s Mount (see route here).
While you’re gazing out at the water, it might surprise you to learn that below the waves lies the remains of an ancient forest. To bring this secret landscape to life, local artist Emma Smith has created a site-specific artwork, ‘Gwelen’. You will find her wooden ‘seeing sticks’ dotted along the coast path. The installation is accompanied by a podcast, which will introduce you to Emma Smith and her work.
