Local Information Points

Local Information Points

There are 10 Local Information Points in the area where you are very welcome to drop in and ask a friendly face for advice on the area. This ground-breaking scheme is run by local business owners, whose hints and tips can make a stay extra special and offer a taste of Cornish life and culture. Many of the LIP’s have internet access so you can get online if you need to. In addition, the Miners & Mechanics Institute in St. Agnes is the place to go for leaflets on local attractions and transport timetables.
