Situated in the heart of a World Heritage Site, Redruth was once little more than a small market town but saw a massive boom in the demand for copper during the 18th and 19th centuries; the evidence of which can be seen in the many opulent commercial buildings and landmarks that line its streets.

Things to do in Redruth

Both pretty and intriguing, Redruth holidays offer visitors an eclectic mix of ancient architecture, interesting landmarks, coastal proximity and specialist shops. Decadent buildings like those of the old Victorian theatre and the Mining Exchange where copper and tin were traded can be seen lining the town’s streets and historic features such as the iconic Cornish Miner statue reminisce of a bygone era and a fascinating past.

Within 30 minutes of the River Fal and just a short 10 minutes of the beautiful coastal village of Portreath, Redruth makes a great base from which to explore the North Cornwall coast. Popular with sunseekers and water sports lovers, the sandy beach at Portreath makes for a great day out, and as well as being spacious and family-friendly, its also famous for the ‘vortex’ that’s generated at high tide when large swells off the harbour wall make for a unique surfing experience.
