Visit Morwellham & Mine Train Adventure

Village Explorer

Morwellham Quay is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage site, an historic copper ore port, village, copper mine & railway just four miles west of Tavistock and bordering the beautiful River Tamar. If you are looking for a stimulating and entertaining day out, Morwellham Quay is the place to visit where you can escape the hustle and bustle of 21st century life as you wander through this enchanting village.

You can make your own way around the village taking in the Victorian miners' cottages, cooperage, the blacksmiths and assayer's work places, quayside and village centre. Why not dress up in one of our ladies, gents or children's Victorian costumes to feel even more part of this era. There are other activities on site including our chocolate experience where you can make your own chocolate lolly, rock breaking where you can discover hidden gems and experience a lesson in our Victorian school. Our village shop is also open and stocked with a wide range of gifts including ironwork and pottery made on site.

Village Explorer & Mine Train Adventure

In addition to your Village Explorer experience why not include a Mine Train Adventure.

This includes a 20 minute cinematic presentation followed by a train ride through the George & Charlotte Copper Mine.

The train ride takes approximately 35 minutes and provides an insight as to how the George and Charlotte mine operated in the 18th and 19th centuries. This begins with a trip along the upper banks of the River Tamar before entering the mine where visitors are taken deep underground on the train and the story of hard rock mining is told by your Victorian copper miner amidst an historical and authentic backdrop.

Children 12 years and under also have free entry to our indoor Miners Adventure Play and outdoor play area.

The village is open for you to explore from 10am.  We recommend you arrive early and allow a minimum of 4 hours to experience to most from your visit.
