Take a Break From the Beach

If you’ve had enough sand between your toes, why not come and enjoy our free 10,000ft exhibition and learn all about Cornwall’s rich milling history? You will also get to see ingenious machinery, dress up as a tin miller or Bal Maiden and discover stories and historical artefacts.

Bring the Dog!

The Tolgus Trail can start (or end) at Cornwall Gold and is a 2.2-mile flat, off-road walk that will take you along farmland down to the beautiful village of Portreath. Perfect for a sunny day.

You can park for free at Cornwall Gold, enjoy the walk there and back and end your time with a cream tea in the Cornish Pantry! It’s certainly one way to tire out the kids!
