One has to assume that First Bus (or is it Cornwall Council) see no value in encouraging bus travel to Lamorna Cove; just let more amd more cars clog up the lane.
Nevertheless, they were able to enjoy the luxurious terminal facilities provided by the dynamic partnership of First Bus, Cornwall Council and the owners of the Lands End "attractions".
But the views from the cliff top are gorgeous ...
If only they had planned the day more carefully. If only they had understood the timetable.
A day rover ticket, even at the high price of £10 each would have saved them money. Their unplanned fares for the day were (EACH!):-
SINGLE Penzance to Lamorna Wink £4 adult
SINGLE Lamorna Turn to Land End £5 adult
SINGLE Land End to Penzance £5 adult
GRAND TOTAL £14
But, has fbb's light hearted description of Eric and Mavis Smails' unhappy experience be an exaggeration? Would real people set off on a day trip with such a display of misplaced innocence? The answer, from several years' experience trying to run an open top bus from Ryde sea front ...
Above all, holiday makers and occasional visitors struggle with complicated timetables.
So what IS wrong with the 1, 1A, 1B and 1C?
**To be pedantic, there are two buses a day from Lamorna to Lands End. They are diverted 1As at 1533 and 1810. There is no return working via Lamorna, however, after the 1244 back to Penzance.
