What travellers are saying
- Took part in a meet the animals session with 16 year old animal loving daughter.
We were welcomed by Jo, who was absolutely brilliant.
There was a packed session which included meeting and feeding the goats, meeting and feeding the reindeer and then holding Stella the snake, along with slow worms,
a ferret, a hedgehog, stroking an
Iguana and then handling a barn owl. I thought perhaps we would get to meet a few of the animals and didn’t realise how much would get packed into the session.
Jo made sure everyone got a turn and answered everyone’s questions.
After the session, you are free to walk around the centre and see the other animals and we were there to watch Jo feeding the meerkats and porcupines so that was a bonus.
The session cost £30 for adults and £5 for spectators / entry to the centre which I think was a really good price for such a lovely experience.Written 28 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Great visit to historic mining site somewhat incongrously accessed from Morrison's car park. Fascinating industrial archaeology with guided tour explaining various functions of the metal mine which operated until early 1950s. Staff were absolutely excellent - helpful and supportive (I have mobility difficulties), explanations were very clear and helpful.
An interesting slice of our industrial history. Recommended for anyone interested in our industrial past or the history of Cornwall.Written 22 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- An enormous celtic cross atop a rocky outcrop near an old castle - what's not to like? Sadly the gate to the stairs uo the inside is locked and looks to have been so for a very long time. Dedicated to the memory of a nobleman from the area.
Particularly nice at sunset.Written 20 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Had a great couple of hours here this morning with our 4 year old Grandson. A local free attraction with such friendly staff. So many memories from my childhood. Highly recommendedWritten 27 August 2023
- I've not been here for 30+ years but as we walked through the gate and climbed to the rim, the atmosphere of the place once again took my breath away. One could easily imagine John Wesley in full flow here. It' a spiritual place yet immensely groundedWritten 30 October 2023
- A nice couple of hours here. Plenty to see and a few things to buy. Nice restaurant, jewellery sales, bear factory and can watch the jewellers making items.
There appears to be a 40% sale on all the time.
Free to park and wander around. The mining trail, exhibition is interesting too.Written 28 October 2022

- What a lovely day out - the kids loved it. A bit shrunken from the pictures here but rapidly grew following a brief rain shower.Written 21 September 2023
- This is not a pretty petting farm or a visitor attraction but a working farm. We visited with an open mind and were taken into the field with the loose horses. It was a rare treat to be able to touch the beautiful Suffolk Punches which were grazing happily and we were told to spend as much time as we liked with the horses. I spoke at length with the owner and we were very impressed with his life long efforts to save this wonderful rare breed. As far as I could see the condition of the horses was excellent, they certainly looked well fedWritten 7 May 2017
- My 5 year old niece visited today and loved it! Smashing little area within a lovely local park. Beautifully kept. I enjoyed the flower boarders but the kids area won out in the end. Brilliant testament to the well cared for public areas in Redruth.Written 23 July 2018

The races are adrenaline packed and full of excitement
Friendly and helpful staff
Lots of lovely spectatorsWritten 10 April 2023
- This country garden is well signposted, so easy to find and we were able to park very close to the garden gate. Very natural setting with a lovely variety of shrubs and plants in the walled area. This leads onto the wilderness walk a wooded area with many mature trees and the wooded Shade House. All the staff were friendly and there is a very pleasant tea room. A nice place to visit and there seems to be a few developments in progress.Written 20 August 2021
