Culture in Cornwall

Heritage and Culture


Cornwall has literally thousands of years of history that has shaped our culture.

So much of this can still be seen around the landscape today – from prehistoric sites to the tin mines of the industrial age.

Fans of the hit TV show Poldark can even take a tour of the locations of the filming. Plus there are underground mines you can visit including Poldark Mine.

We have castles – including Pendennis Castle, traditional ancestral homes with rolling grounds – check out this list, World Heritage sites aplenty, along with many museums, including the National Maritime Museum Cornwall – a favourite for children and adults alike! And if you’re a fan of art, why not visit Tate St Ives.

Let us show you where to go to see and experience what goes into making this place so special.
