About the location
Portreath 4.5 miles; Hayle 7 miles.
Camborne lies in the heart of a former wealthy mining community and was well known for the “Queen of Cornish mines”, the Dolcoath copper and tin mine, the deepest in Cornwall. Today Camborne is home to Heartlands, a community space covering 19 acres and scattered with remnants of the mining industry, providing a free space for visitors to explore the heritage of Cornwall, browse art and craft spaces, stroll the gardens, have a picnic or enjoy lunch at the Red River café. In Camborne town centre there is an interesting town trail, museum and plenty of shops and pubs. A short ten minute drive from Camborne brings you to a wealth of sandy Cornish beaches including Portreath, Gwithian and Porthtowan. Camborne is ideal for exploring Land’s End, the Lizard Peninsula, Truro and the Eden Project, which are all less than an hour’s drive.
