Hotels in Redruth
A market town in Cornwall, Redruth is 12 miles east of St Ives, 11 minutes from the nearest beach and was once the urban centre of the Cornish mining industry. A pretty town with great independent shops and cafés, it's a great base to explore the area and the rest of Cornwall.
Those interested in industrial history should visit the East Pool Mine. This fine collection of preserved engine houses has two great beam engines at its heart, originally powered by high-pressure steam boilers. They serve now as a reminder of Cornwall's days as a world-famous centre of industry, engineering and innovation. The Heritage Discovery Centre shows films, displays and models and has knowledgeable guides to help. With a small shop and café for refreshments, you can make this a full or half-day's outing.
Step back even further in time at the huge ancient tin mine, Wheal Peevor, an impressive listed engine-house site that was first set up in the early 1700s. One of the most internationally significant mining sites that exists today, it was re-opened during WWI to extract a mineral called wolfram (or tungsten). All twelve mineshafts and three engine houses are open to explore, with interesting information and displays on view. A great trip for young and old alike.
Wildlife lovers should visit Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre, which offers a wealth of experiences, nature trails, falconry, night walks and rock pooling. Here you can take a breath-taking woodland safari or beach adventure, fly a magnificent falcon and stroke a pair of friendly foxes.
No trip to Cornwall is complete without a trip to the beach and the nearest to Redruth is just a ten-minute drive. The beautiful coastal village of Portreath has plenty of scenery, activities and history, and the large golden sandy beach has plenty of space for lively children, sun seekers and, of course, surfers.
Walkers can delight in the Mineral Tramways and Mining Trails which comprise a 38-mile network of pathways, a great environment for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. For a picnic to remember, explore the circular Great Flat Lode Trail and eat among the old buildings which look out over Godrevy Lighthouse.
