Travel Tips for Helston

Let's Get Walking

by hayward68

A small daypack is good to bring for all the long walks you'll want to take, great for carrying food and water. Sturdy walking or hiking shoes, wet weather gear because you just never know. A waterproof jacket and umbrella. You can pretty much buy it all here. A wide angle lens for your camera to take in some gorgeous scenery. There are plenty of camping places so camping equipment is a good idea. If you scuba dive, bring it along, there are many places offering scuba. Bring your towel or beach chair for relaxing on the beach. Bring your horse and introduce it to Geoff_Wright's ;-)

Poldark Mine

by hayward68

This is an early 18th century tin mine incorporating a heritage display with a museum. You can actually take a tour through the mine shafts. There are several different routes depending on how deep you are prepared to go. I took what I referred to as the chicken route, the shallowest one.
And you have to wear a hardhat, that isn't a fashion statement I'm making!
In the past few years evidence of tin workings from between 2000 BC and 1200 AD were discovered after some heavy rains in the area. Before 1493 this site was a tin stamping mill and was the first in Cornwall.
Once you've done the mine tour hit the craft shops on site and shop for books, antiques, candles, pottery and woodwork.
Admission for adults is £5.95 and for children it's £3.75. You can get a family pass which would be 2 adults + 2 children for the cost of £16.45

Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station

by hayward68

This place shows you how news and events visuals are beamed around the world. As someone who works in the TV industry, I found it fascinating.
It's a bit of a visual distraction as you drive down the B3293 because these huge satellite dishes loom over Goonhilly Downs, I'm still trying to get a good picture of them! There's more than 60 dishes which deal with your emails, phone calls and television signals.
The Visitor's Centre has some interactive displays which will amuse both children and adults alike. You're also taken on a tour of the site which includes a bus ride around the dishes.
The cost of admission is £5.00 for adults and £3.50 for children 5 to 16. Children under 5 get in for free.
I've scanned the front cover of the pamplet I received there as I don't have a good picture.
The Earth station is located 7 miles from Helston on the B3293 St. Keverne Rd, Cornwall

Glendurgan Gardens

by hayward68

This garden, first planted in the 1820's, is noted as one of the great sub-tropical gardens of the Southwest. Try to make your way through the laurel maze which I'm sure is higher than it was when I toured the site. It was only thigh high then as it was being restored from it's 19th century origins.
This has been a National Trust property since 1962.
Admission is £4.00 for adults and 6-16yrs pay £2.00 Those 5 and under are free.
