Cornwall Gold - Tolgus Mill, Redruth TR16 4HN

Tolgus Mill

Built on the site of an old Tin Mine and set amidst breath-taking gardens, Cornwall Gold is a major must-see family attraction in Cornwall and is completely free to enter. Children will enjoy the jewellery workshops, the creative pottery and painting activities and even get the chance to build their own cuddly bear! Pan for gold at the Wild West ranch using authentic methods – and keep what you find!

The outdoor children’s entertainment outlets are waiting to be discovered along the winding footpaths and over the tranquil streams and water wheels. Also, keep your eyes peeled for the incredible unique displays, including Ancient Egypt and the Cornish Crown Jewels.

Explore the Tin Mine itself, in the mill you will find dipper wheels, shaking tables, pulverisors and more. The mine was used to extract tin particles from the river which flows through the Park, and the stamps at the mill are driven by Europe’s only remaining 16’ water TresureParkwheel.
