Parking in the NT Penrose car park, walk downhill along the path. It's not an extra 5 minutes if you go right (as the signpost suggests) and is much safer for the buggy as the other path (straight on) that we went down ended in a short flight of steps. You'll need an all-terrain/sturdy buggy, as after the cafe the road loses tarmac. It's still a good road though.
The walk was a bit far for a 3 year old who hadn't had his nap, but he enjoyed looking at the green gym things along the route, and a few piggy backs - this would be good if you had older children and bikes going from Helston.
There are works on the Bar at the moment, not sure what's happening. We didn't walk down to it, but admired the views from the top. We enjoyed a tea break at the Stables on the way back.
The walk from Penrose does always seem a little bit samey after a while, but worth the wait at the end. A great afternoon for all ages.
