Trains from Paddington to Penzance, the southernmost railway station in the UK, take about six hours, the last few minutes of the journey are along the shoreline of Mount’s Bay. The terminal station of the Great Western Railway, which in 1859 connected West Cornwall to the rest of the country and launched seaside tourism in this part of the country, boasts a marvelous specially commissioned installation of landscape paintings by Kurt Jackson.
