Cornwall is full of neolithic sites.
Kernow is an amazing county in Great Britain and has more neolithic sites than any other county here. Ancient burial sites, unusual geological formations and truly Cornish phenomenon like ‘fogous’ are a serious ‘must’ when visiting. Some sturdy quoits or dolmens are available to view like Lanyon Quoit :
Nearby another set of neolithic stone with powers stand through the ages – Men-an-Tol :
Everywhere you go there are folklore, tales and legends to tell the ancient stories – just ask our drivers.
Ophiolite at The Lizard in Cornwall.
This wonder of nature only exists in a few places around the world that we are aware of. The Troodos mountains on Cyprus is one example. Another one is right here in Cornwall UK on the Lizard peninsula where ophiolite has formed. A recent visiting geologist from Argentina was so happy to see the formation on his tour with us. All our day trips are driver-guided and include pick up and drop back within Cornwall.
These are very special places and a lot have been destroyed. Some are on private property so not always available to visit. We do however have some that are exceptionally good to visit. A full day tour allows time to take in as much as possible but if all you want is to see a fogou this can be done on a half day day trip too. Sturdy walking shoes or boots and all-weather clothing is helpful when popping into these spaces that can be damp and slippery.
