Cornwall GoldVisiting as a local
Set within the historic tin mining landscape that our beautiful county is famous for, Cornwall Gold offers a fun-filled day out for all. With the unique opportunity of discovering the largest collection of jewellery in Cornwall, as well as exploring Tolgus Tin Mill – the last remaining mill of its kind in the county, a visit to this attraction is a must.
A designated heritage site, Tolgus Tin Mill provides visitors with the chance to follow and learn about the process of tin streaming and the methods used to smelt the tin ore extracted on site, in order to create stunning pieces of Cornish jewellery. Still used to create some of the beautiful pieces available to purchase at Cornwall Gold, visitors can truly take home a piece of their home county’s heritage.
As the largest collection of jewellery in the county, whether you’re simply interested in seeing the beautiful pieces on display or are seeking a special gift for a loved one – a trip here is an experience in itself and there’s certainly something for everyone. The range covers Cornish pieces, as well as semi-precious and precious items. If you're looking for something that is truly unique to you, why not head to the goldsmith's workshop to discuss the creation of a beautiful, bespoke design?
Well worth a visit – expert staff are always on hand to talk you through the extensive range available, including a variety of freshwater, Akoya, Tahitian and South Sea pearls. As a wedding favourite you can also book a free consultation to find the perfect pieces to match your bridesmaid dresses or even decide on a bespoke piece especially for your big day.
With free admission, plenty of parking and 18 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding Cornwall Gold, the perfect family day out awaits. After exploring Tolgus Tin Mill, why not let the kids get stuck into some Krazy Golf, Create and Paint Pottery or some Stream Panning? If you’re looking for things to keep the kids occupied at the weekend, look no further.
Providing delicious dishes, inspired by traditional Cornish favourites, the extensive menu found at the Cornish Pantry Restaurant has something for everyone. We highly recommend the Full English Breakfast – totally delicious, this mammoth meal is served up on a giant miner’s shovel!
