Visit Helston

Often described as the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, as well as being the most southerly town in the United Kingdom, Helston is a traditional town with plenty of charm and character. As the second oldest town in Cornwall, following Marazion, you can be sure that there’s much history to discover. Once a thriving port in West Cornwall, a wealth of Georgian and Victorian architecture is found throughout the town.

A local’s guide to St Ives

St Ives in West Cornwall is a beautiful cultural hub that draws artists and families alike to its sandy shores. The famous Tate Gallery sits in the centre and is surrounded by cafes and eateries sit behind the beaches.

A traditional town

Helston has a great deal of impressive architecture, with one of the best examples “The Monument”. This impressive neo-gothic archway is dedicated to Humphry Millet Grylls, who kept open a local tin mine in the 19th Century, saving over 1,000 local jobs.

Make sure to visit the town’s restaurants and pubs, including The May Tree Inn, The Coinage Hall (a Wetherspoons pub) and The Blue Anchor Inn - a former rest house for monks which sells local ales famous for their strength and taste.

You’ll have an abundance of things to see and do in Helston, including its many shops, cinema and museum, and the Helston Railway, Britain's most southerly heritage railway. If you want to venture further afield, visit the jaw-droppingly beautiful Kynance Cove or Flambards - a theme park just south of the town.
