Event Details


Join our classic mark I excursion for the Pathfinder Railtour’s annual visit to the Mazey Day celebrations in Penzance, with other off-train options to choose from as well.

The Cornish celebration of Midsummer, known locally as Golowan, dates back to 1754, but was only re-established in 1991.

We head off for the festivities on an absorbing journey close to the longest day of the year, with much of the journey in daylight almost from start to finish. Fast running west of Bristol, through the counties of Somerset and Devon, takes us to Plymouth and the crossing of the River Tamar into Cornwall across Brunel’s iconic bridge.

Choose from:

Option A – TRURO (1225/1645): Cornwall’s only Cathedral city with a branchline to Falmouth^

Option B – ST ERTH (1255/1615): for the scenic branchline to picturesque St Ives^

Option C – PENZANCE (1305/1605): for Mazey Day celebrations and festivities, or perhaps a visit to nearby Marazion (for St Michael’s Mount), Mousehole, Newlyn or Land’s End on the local buses.

^ Pay local rail fare on the day.
