St Austell Hotels

Mini guide to St Austell


Located picturesque Cornwall, St Austell lies in the heart of clay mining country. Known as 'Clayopolis', St Austell played an important role in the clay industry, which is showcased in the Wheal Martyn China Clay Heritage Centre. St Austell is known as the capital of the 'Cornish Alps' and is a bustling town dominated by a 15th century Holy Trinity Church. It is a great base from which to explore the nearby coastal towns and villages, which all boast stunning scenery and beaches.

To experience maritime history, visit the Shipwreck and Heritage Centre, in nearby Charlestown, which boasts the UK's largest collection of artefacts and treasure recovered from shipwrecks. The coastal town of Charlestown itself is also a great day out, brimming with Georgian charm.

The area's newest attraction is the stunning Eden Project, made up of two geodesic domes containing two different biospheres - Humid Tropical Biome and Warm Temperature Biome. Showcasing the interaction of humans with plant life, these fascinating domes offer a fun day out for every member of the family.

Although, at first glance, Caerhays Castle looks like a Norman stronghold, it was built by architect John Nash in the 19th century. The castle boasts stunning gardens, which are known for their Camellias, Magnolias and Rhododendrons. For gardening buffs, the nearby Lost Gardens of Heligan is also worth a visit, boasting award-winning gardens.
