About St Just

An unspoilt town in the far west of the county, once a thriving mining area as can be seen by the many disused engine houses that dot the landscape.

The town offers:

  • A good selection of small shops, restaurants, tea rooms and pubs.
  • The Plain-an-Gwarry theatre, used for miracle plays in medieval times.
  • A 15th century church forming part of a building built in 1336.

The whole area is steeped in history of farming, mining and fishing in ancient times, numerous monuments scattered across isolated moorlands bear testament to this past.


  • Pendeen  -  featuring the Geevor tin mine museum and the lighthouse
  • Sancreed  -  A picturesque little village on the road to Penzance
  • Cape Cornwall  -  The cape rise 229 feet above the sea with a 270 degree view over the Western approaches, it is the only cape in England where two oceans meet.
  • Cape Cornwall also features an 138 year old chimney stack once used in the mining industry.
  • An excellent golf course overlooking the sea.

As is usual with Cornwall, good beaches are not too far away.
