Charlestown is a Georgian port and village in Cornwall, with pebble beaches and links into a wealth of history. The harbour has memorable sites of historical Tall Ships of ‘Square Riggers’, time it right and take a tour of one of these amazing ships that have appeared in many films. Artists and photographers will refuse to move once they gaze upon these seafaring wonders. The cliffs have coastal walks where the ever changing views won’t fail to please, or The Charlestown Shipwreck & Heritage Centre has an interesting story to tell, covering Nelson, shipwrecks, treasures, and even a disused Tunnel once used to move China Clay to the waiting ships. A visit to Cornish Market World will lighten any purse, as it’s the largest Indoor Market in the UK, or perhaps the intriguing story of St Austell Brewery is more for you, with guided tours, Museum and best of all perhaps, the tasting…. For lovers of nature, the Eden Project has a million plants from different climate zones around the globe, housed in the impressive Biomes. Or the World Of Model Railways with 40 model trains is an interesting interlude, or climb aboard and sample the elegant era of steam at Bodmin & Wenford Railway, where Locomotives journey through beautiful Cornish countryside
