But with so much on offer, how will you decide what to see first?

A brilliant spot

The town is surrounded by sandy beaches in the picturesque setting of St Austell Bay. It’s a brilliant spot from which to explore the coastline or go paddling in the sea.

A visit to the popular botanical phenomenon of the Lost Gardens of Heligan should be on your to do list, as should a tour of the St Austell Brewery with the obligatory tasting session and a trip to the brewery shop.

The town itself boasts a pretty stretch of woodland that is perfect for an evening stroll or a summer picnic, then a film at the White River Cinema.

The Clay Trails provide great opportunities for cycling, walking and horse riding. These lunar-type landscapes are surreal, but beautifully dramatic, especially when the disused pits flood. For a great day out go to Caerhays Castle or the nearby Eden Project.
