View the statue of Humpry Davy, a scientist and inventor of the Davy lamp which allowed miners to work in safety. Stroll into the Morrab gardens just off the town and explore the many features and variety of shrubs, trees, and plants. A must to investigate is the port and harbour, take in the scenic sea views and if its mid tide use the causeway of granite to visit St Michael’s Mount and explore the island or take the castle tour. If the causeway is not passable take the ferry boat.
