“Cornwall Gold is perfect for a day out whatever the weather”
Take a tour of Tolgus Tin Streaming Mill, where the tin produced is used in the team’s own unique Tolgus Collection of jewellery. The tin streaming works here is the
last remaining tin mill in Europe and is absolutely stepped in history. The jewellery produced using its tin is beautiful too, making the perfect gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself!
Perfect in any weather, with free parking and free entry (including Tolgus Mill), head to Cornwall Gold this spring and make the most of the sunshine with a round of Krazy Golf or, if the weather’s inclement, pan for gold in Tolgus Stream. Kids will relish the opportunity to build their own cuddly toy in the Build a Bear workshop, and families can all get stuck into the Create and Paint pottery studios. Dogs are welcome across the entire site as well and they’re sure to love sniffing their way around the 18 acres that Cornwall Gold occupies.
To break up the day, we highly recommend popping into the Cornish Pantry. Serving Taste of the West Gold award-winning food, the talented team of chefs never fail to disappoint with their imaginative, seasonal menu. Whether it’s a full Cornish breakfast in the morning served on a traditional miner’s shovel, or the restaurant’s famous Pasty Platter, there’s never a bad time to visit the Cornish Pantry, even if it’s just for a sit down, a cream tea or a delicious cup of barista coffee. On Sundays, from 12pm, you can sit down for a superb Sunday carvery, offering up the finest locally sourced meats and produce for that ‘all the trimmings’ experience. The best part is, everything on the menu is sourced from within a 20-mile radius, so you know it’s fresh!
Cornwall Gold is perfect for a day out whatever the weather, with free parking and only ten minutes from the South West Coast Path and local beaches. Indeed, if your furry friend’s energy knows bounds, why not take them for a stroll along the South West Coast Path before or after your visit? The perfect way to start the morning and get the blood pumping, your hound will love sniffing their way along the path, and you’re sure to enjoy the dizzying Atlantic views. Nothing quite works up an appetite like the fresh sea air, either, and if you’re planning to head to Cornwall Gold for the afternoon, as we’ve already mentioned, you know you’ll be well catered for – literally!
So, whether the sun is shining, you’re looking for an all weather attraction to get out of the house, or seeking a way to break up an afternoon exploring the north coast and discover Cornwall’s fascinating industrial heritage, we highly recommend pencilling in a trip to Cornwall Gold this Easter!
