St.Just in Penwith

England’s most westerly town, stands in an area of outstanding natural beauty just 10 miles from Land’s End. Traditionally a mining town but now has shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants around it’s lively market Square, as well as Art Galleries and such like. It has a character all of it's own and many people return time and again.

Try the local butchers, bakers, and greengrocers for fresh Cornish produce, all highly recommended! Don't forget the Cornish Pasties and Cornish Saffron Cake (very appropriate!) You will also find a Co-op and Premier for most shopping needs as well as a newsagents.

There are many craft and bric-a-brac shops to browse around also several cafes, restaurants and pubs around the square. Not forgetting the fish & chip shop & Chinese takeaway for a quick meal.


The local crafts, artists and art galleries have their own website - Just Arts  They also produce a magazine/directory you can pick up in many local shops.


St Just even has it's own festival held every year on the third Saturday in July. The Lafrowda Festival . Big sculptures, banners, lanterns, music, floats, street performers, stalls, bouncy castles and lots more! ‘Its just great fun for everyone, old & young and inbetween’.


St Just has its own council website that gives you general information on the town- St Just


Visit the 'Plen-An-Gwary' the open air amphitheatre in the centre of St.Just; one of only two surviving in Cornwall, it has stood in the heart of the community for at least 600 years. Meaning 'place of the play', it has been in use since the middle ages and is still very much in use today for all variety of entertainment.
