Area Overview

Situated north of Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula, Helston enjoys the title of Britain's most southerly town. The peninsula is renowned for its rocky coastline, historically nicknamed the "Graveyard of Ships", and its untouched areas of wild moorland, popular with birdwatchers and ramblers. Due to Helston's sought-after location on the south coast, the climate is very mild and average highs of 19°C can be expected during the summer months, perfect for Helston’s annual traditional festivals and dances. This quaint town is just a short drive from both Penzance and Falmouth, as well as the popular Flambards Experience theme park and the Poldark Mine.

Things To Do in Helston

  • Helston Folk Museum: Housed in Helston’s original market hall, this museum celebrates the town’s history, local art work and Cornish antiquities.
  • The Lizard Peninsula: Officially designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the peninsula is famed for its treacherous rocky shores, its abundance of wildlife and perfectly preserved geological formations.
  • Loe Pool: This natural freshwater lake is one of the largest of its kind in the country and is enshrined within Cornish folklore as the lake into which King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, was cast.
  • The Flambards Experience: Founded in 1976, this amusement park features rollercoasters, log flumes and a go-karting track.
  • Poldark Mine: A former Victorian tin mine which is now open to the public.
