Poldark Tin Mine and Gardens, an open air museum in beautiful rural gardens

About The Mine
BBC filming new Poldark series June 2014

Our intention is to give an interesting, engaging and educational introduction to Cornwalls mining and social heritage. The museum and grounds are home to many unique exhibits, interpreting the fascinating story of the Cornish miners overseas and at home. The museum offers something of interest to people of all ages.

Described by UNESCO as the Jewel in the Crown of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site the mine tour gives a unique insight into working conditions in 18th and early 19th century tin mines and into Cornwalls geology. It is the only complete underground mine open to the public in Cornwall.

For an overview of the history of the grounds see the quick page links panel on the right.
