Things to see and do in Cornwall

Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden
Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden

Visiting the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden is a unique experience, offering a remarkable insight into the work and outlook of one of Britain's most important twentieth century artists. Sculptures in bronze, stone and wood are on display in the Museum and Garden, along with paintings, drawings and archive material. Barbara Hepworth first came to live in Cornwall with her husband Ben Nicholson and their young family at the outbreak of war in 1939. She lived and worked in Trewyn studios, now the Hepworth Museum, from 1949 until her death in 1975. Following her wish to establish her home and studio as a museum of her work, Trewyn Studio and much of the artist's work remaining there was given to the nation and placed in the care of the Tate Gallery in 1980.

Lanhydrock
Lanhydrock

Lanhydrock is the perfect country house and estate, with the feel of a wealthy but unpretentious family home. Follow in the footsteps of generations of the Robartes family, walking in the 17th-century Long Gallery among the rare book collection under the remarkable plasterwork ceiling. After a devastating fire in 1881 the house was refurbished in the high-Victorian style, with the latest mod cons. Boasting the best in country-house design and planning, the kitchens, nurseries and servants' quarters offer a thrilling glimpse into life 'below stairs', while the spacious dining room and bedrooms are truly and deeply elegant.


Launceston Steam Railway

The L.S.R. runs from the historic Cornish town of Launceston through several miles of countryside to the hamlet of Newmills. Trains run throughout the summer, hauled by steam locomotives built to a famous design by the Hunslet Engineering Company in the late 1800's. On site at Launceston station are a café, museum, workshop, well stocked shop and bookshop, and adjacent to the railway at Newmills is a popular farm park (separate charge). Tickets allow you unlimited travel on the day of your visit, so you can ride up and down as many times as you wish, or break your journey for a riverside picnic or to explore the local footpaths. There are also remains of an Augustinian Priory which you can view at Launceston station.

This historic spot is rich in flora and fauna and provides a breeding ground for sea birds, lizards and butterflies. Tintagel Castle is Cornwall’s most iconic site. A strong hold of the Earls of Cornwall, the castle was built in the 13th century. Now in ruins, it still has the power to inspire.
