Visitor Information

Heartlands is Cornwall’s first free cultural playground on a grand scale.

Covering 19 acres, there is so much to absorb, from the poetically landscaped botanical gardens to the interactive exhibitions that truly take you someplace else. This is a lightning bolt of fun in a forgotten part of Cornwall that was once the richest patch of land on earth.

Robinson's Engine House

Set in the shadow of an iconic Cornish engine house, Heartlands has brought the former derelict mining landscape at Robinson’s Shaft back to life through a £35 million project, thanks to a mammoth amount of hard work, the support and imagination of the local community and some generous funding from the Big Lottery Living Landmark programme (£22.3 million), European Union, Cornwall Council and the Homes and Community agency.

Open almost every day of the year with a diverse menu of events, Heartlands has something for everyone, so why not visit today and see what’s going on.

Pedestrian access changes to Heartlands - Friday 15 September

Please be advised that pedestrian access from the Heartlands car park is going to be changed on Friday 15 September due to ongoing construction works.

Pedestrians will be routed into Heartlands from the car park via the wind turbine footpath entrance at the far end of the playground.

Signage will be provided to clearly identify the temporary route of access into Heartlands.


From homemade pasties to delicious sandwiches, the Red River Café offers fresh bistro-style food in the beautiful surroundings of the old carpenter's workshop.
