Discover Heartlands: Where Cornish Culture Comes to Life

Welcome to Heartlands, a 19-acre Cornish Mining World Heritage Site that’s more than just a place – it’s an experience. Nestled in the heart of Cornwall’s mining legacy, just off the A30 in Pool, Redruth.

At Heartlands, we’re all about community, culture, and having a fantastic time. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, a nature lover, or a family looking for a fun day out, we’ve got something for everyone. Let us take you on a journey through the heart of Cornwall’s rich heritage.

Immerse Yourself in History: Explore our captivating mining exhibitions, and discover the stories of those who shaped Cornwall’s legacy.

Embrace Nature: Wander through our diaspora (meaning ‘dispersion’) gardens. The exquisite planting tells the poignant story of the Cornish people and their influence on the lands to which they travelled.

Adventure Awaits: Kids, get ready to embark on an epic journey of imagination with our colossal adventure playscape.

All the above is Free: We believe in making culture accessible to all, which is why these incredible attractions are entirely free for everyone to enjoy.

But here’s the deal: Heartlands is more than a visitor attraction; we’re a Charitable Trust. By donating some change…a little or a lot, and visiting our Cafe, or enjoying our indoor soft play area, you’re supporting the Charity and helping us make a difference in the community we love.

Rain or shine, we’ve got you covered. Our lush outdoor spaces are perfect for sunny days, while our indoor activities keep the fun going even when the weather doesn’t cooperate. It’s all-year-round, all-weather entertainment for everyone.

Our dedicated team are excited to make your visit memorable and fun. Come be a part of Heartlands, where we celebrate the past and inspire the future. Your adventure begins here.
