From the north of England, i stayed over in Plymouth Devon, for one night, then one night Truro Cornwall. Arriving at St. Ives rail station on the branch line from St. Erith,i found my guest house, across the road on a raised walkway. The Rookery is run by a lovely couple and i stayed 3 nights.
St. Ives is a seaside resort, and claims to be the jewel in Cornwall Crown, it is not far from Lands End. It is a great little place, with narrow streets, Lifeboat, Surfers, Ice Cream, Fish and Chips and is Arty with Tate St. Ives, Barbara Hepworth Gallery and Leach Pottery. The main street is called Fore street. Tate St. Ives is a regional part of Tate Britain in London.--- Being on my own i ate modest.,so i enjoyed Fish and Chips, Bread and Butter, also pot of tea at the Balancing Ell Cafe.==.== Cornwall is a penninsula by the English Channel and Atlantic Ocean., so you are never far from the Sea. ------
Another seaside resort i visited was Looe, on the South East coast of Cornwall. It is a lovely town on both sides of the river Looe. ,it has Lovely Beaches, Glass Bottom Boats, loads of walks, Fishing on sea and river, Tourist Office, Museum ,and prehistoric remains. I arrived by train.,and stayed at the Rivercroft Hotel ,LOOE CORNWALL
