Discover the extraordinary landscape that makes up this world heritage site with places to walk, attractions to visit, take a little time to discover the amazing mining history of Cornwall.  Everywhere you look you can still see traces of it in the landscape and nothing quite beats walking, riding you bike or horse around the Mineral Tramways.

Stithians Lake 2

Stithians Lake

There’s so much to see and do at Stithians Lake just a mile from Little White Alice.  Get on the lake and learn a new watersport. (suitable for all ages) or take you dog and walk, ride, cycle run around the lake.  There are bird hides to visit and places to fish from. Have coffee and cake at Caffe Nova and let the kids loose on the playground and climbing wall.

Eden 18

No one can come to Cornwall and not visit The Eden Project.  One of the wonders of the world this old clay quarry has been transformed into a unique creative garden based experience.  With sculptures, an education centre, play areas, many places to eat and seasonal festivals there is always something new happening at Eden throughout the year.

St Michaels Mount

A castle that looks like it’s come out of a fairy book.  St Michaels Mount is magical.  You can either walk out at low tide across the cobbled causeway or take a small boat out and spend a day exploring the Mount and it’s gardens.  It’s a very special place.

Tremenheere Sculpture and Art in a garden?

Tremenheere is more than just a sculpture garden and has become one of our favourite places to hang out in with the fantastic cafe, a shop, garden centre and magical light sculptures and art installations in the garden and now a brand new oak framed art gallery. Film evenings and other themed events throughout the year.

With over 60 gardens to visit in Cornwall the county is a gardeners paradise especially in the Spring.

Truro

Shopping in Truro

If you cannot live without a bit of retail therapy then Truro has a good mix of national and independent shops and you can catch a train or a ferry there from Falmouth and travel the beautiful Fal River on the way or catch a train from Redruth. Truro Cathedral and Truro Museum are both well worth making the journey for.

Poldark Mine

Get historical at Poldark mine

Hard hats, steep climbs and narrow dark tunnels, think Indiana Jones not for the faint hearted. Poldark Mine has been taken on by new owners in the last few years and there has been a lot of new work going on to revive this iconic site.  The guided trips into the mine are well worth taking the time out to experience and some of the scenes from Poldark have been filmed in them.

National Maritime Museum Visitcornwall

Get Nautical at the Maritime Museum Falmouth

The award winning Maritime Museum is excellent for a wet day with hands on interactive displays to keep everyone entertained and children’s workshops throughout the year as well as themed exhibitions.

Minack02

Minack Theatre

Cornwall is well known for its tradition of experimental outdoor theatre in a huge variety of settings from beaches to gardens to cliffsides.  Ones we most enjoy are the astounding outdoor theatre in the historical cliff side Minack Theatre with a changing programme of visiting companies and the innovative Asylum theatre with the groundbreaking Kneehigh company who have both adult and children’s shows and workshops throughout the summer at Heligan Gardens.
