A picture postcard Cornish village steeped in tin mining history, but what does St Agnes offer today’s visitor? We visited to find the contrast between sleepy village and beach.
Up in the village itself, narrow streets are home to cafés convenience stores, a bank, chemist, village pubs, cafes and restaurants.
Plus an appealing mix of local shops.
Then we followed the signs for the walk down to the beach.
After a round 10 minutes you can hear the sound of the waves.
The tide was in, but the beach is an attractive hang-out with take aways, a café and a pub and local artists.
And is the gateway to some stunning coastal walks for the more energetic.
You are never far from reminders of St. Agnes’ mining heritage.
The walk back up to the village is uphill, but fortunately there are opportunities to refresh on the way.
