St Buryan is a small village in the far west of Cornwall. The population is around 500, however the gene pool is small and most people are related!

Get in[edit]

The nearest station is Penzance, from where there are buses (operated by First Bus Cornwall) going on their way to Lands' End. There are also occasional buses from St Just in Penwith.

Get around[edit]

Easy parking everywhere, then just walk and stroll around.
