Tunnels through time and Buccaneer Bay
This is an attraction not to be missed if you are into pirates and Cornish history. Situated at the top of a hill in St Michaels Road next to the church overlooking a car park park, is the museum and the Sunken Village of the Damned is their latest attraction. Groups are taken around by Pirate Captain Morgan who speaks in an authentic voice, sounds a bit like my uncle does.
You have to have nerves of steel if you want to do the Sunken Village of the Damned, but it can be avoided if so wished. Scary scenes, heart-chilling sounds, atmospheric lighting and theatrical effects will test you.
Opening times are:
Tuesday, July 6 - 10.30am to 4.30pm
Wednesday, July 7 - 10.30am to 4.30pm
Thursday, July 8 - 10.30am to 4.30pm
Friday, July 9 - 10.30am to 4.30pm
Saturday, July 10 - closed all day
Sunday July 11 - 11.30am to 4.30pm
Admission: Adults (16yrs+) £6.50 Children (5-15yrs) £3.25
Seniors £5.00 Full-time Students (with current ID) £5.00.
It's good to visit on fine days as if their is a group already going round, you can sit in comfortable chairs in their front garden.
Note: The comment deemed most humorous -
Simon & Ava, West Midlands: Excellent - Village of the Damned reminded us of Coventry.

"CLICK ON PICTURES TO ENLARGE"
The first night out proper was on the Sunday and in Newquay then everything closed at 10.30pm, so after a few beers we all decided to have a beach party at first we were the only people down on the beach but about an hour later the whole of Newquay seemed to be down there!! The whole beach was packed and we all got split up and managed to get home to the camp site in different taxis, I think one taxi made more than one journey picking up waffs and strays from our group and as most of us had been in the sea and were pretty wet his seats were getting more and more wet with every journey!!
For some strange reasons we thought it would be great to buy some funny hats and we even thought it would be a good idea to go to a night club in them! Russell was forced to enter a muscle man competition on that night but sadly he came 10th which was strange as there where only 5 contestants!
The best pubs in Newquay where the Central Inn and The sailors arms
sadly when returning to Newquay two years later the central inn had turned a bit grubby but the Sailors Arms was still buzzing and they had a massive club at the back.
The best night club at the time was Talltrees! We went there a couple of nights and danced away to Rick Astley, Stock Aitkin and Waterman, and Terence Trent D'arby among others, OOH!! Gary Davies DJ'd there on one of the nights and Claire won a dancing competition!
