First Great Western operates trains from London Paddington to Penzance (note there is an overnight sleeper service which runs Monday to Friday between Paddington and Penzance and on Sunday nights - this is not bookable online but you can find information on the website and book it by phone - prices are reasonable if you can get an apex fare), Cross Country Trains operate from the north of England and Scotland to Penzance. A taxi from the station costs approximately £20 and takes 20 minutes - the bus station is adjacent to the train station at Penzance but please be aware that in the winter the last bus out to Land's End/Porthcurno does leave quite early - see www.travelinesw.com for more details.
This is available adjacent to Penzance station through Europcar. Hertz is also nearby and they will pick up from Penzance station free of charge. You could also consider hiring a Classic Car.

In Porthcurno there is a bus stop directly opposite the Cable Station pub which is adjacent to Zodiac House where Stargazey, Pisces, Top Deck, Shellseekers, Beachcomber, Capricorn and Aquarius are situated.
There is another bus stop by the postbox in the valley which is a few hundred yards from Sundowner and Surfers Paradise.
The bus stop in Sennen Cove is approximately 100 yards from Carn Base.
If you are coming here to be peaceful, walk the coastal path and go to the local beach then it's fine to have no car. However, if you want to explore further afield I would recommend hiring a car because the bus timetables can severely restrict your movements, particularly in the evenings.
