Morwellham let's you step back to a time gone by when mining was a large part of Cornwall and Devon's daily life. See how the miners worked and lived with a tour around a typical working cottage and a trip through one of the mines...More

We enjoyed Morwhellham very much in the past and had visited several times. This was our first visit in many years and we were very impressed by the range of interesting activities that were now on offer for the visitor. Good value for money.

Not sure how Morwhellham has crept into the Plymouth Things to Do listings. This slightly run down venue, seen better days but, still interesting practical day out. It is nowhere near Plymouth but a long way up the Tamar valley and much closer to Tavistock...More
