  • It is quite a simple place and easy to follow not high tech in its presentation, it give it to you how it is (or was) Some old exibits conserved and presented where they were left, a nice woodland walk in the grounds and easy under foot. The walk takes you up to a view point to look over the modern quarry and see how the clay is extracted.
  • Excellent place to visit. A majestic waterwheel and interesting museum. Plenty of outside places to explore.
  • Lots to see. Well thought out for a variety of ages. Well sign posted. Indoor & outdoor resources.
  • Loved this place a great place to visit and to bring your four legged family members too.
  • Useful informative good cafe and nice staff

Where to stay in St Austell

Unless you want to use St. Austell as a base for exploring the area, consider staying in the picturesque Charlestown or a nearby beach town that boasts better views. St. Austell doesn't offer much to visitors beyond its proximity to nearby attractions and day-trip destinations. If you choose to stay here, there are a few local accommodations, including independent apartment or room rentals. However, the best options are in the harbor area of Charlestown. If you would prefer to stay along the Cornish Riviera, head to Carlyon Bay, Duporth, or Porthpean.
