“small mining town with lots to offer.”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

We popped down to redruth town whilst staying at a local b & b , we found the shops varied and although the market cafe was closed for a refurb, we still enjoyed the character of this small mining town, with plenty of remnants pointing towards its mining past.i shall look forwad to our return and watch a film at the towns regal cinema another of redruths best.

“A former mining town dead on its feet!”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Sadly, Redruth town centre is like so many former industrial towns where the main industry has been killed off and any subsequent replacement industry has also been adversely affected over the years.

The town centre is run down and lacking any shops that grab your attenton and warrant further investigation. Like many of its ilk up and down the country that have lost their industrial heartland it is in dire need of regeneration.

The only two reedeming features were a quirky and fun metal sculpture of dogs made in the form of wellington boots and a statue of a tin miner.
