Visit The Discovery Centre to soak up the history of Cotehele Quay, meet George the shipping officer, find out if you’re a land lubber or an old sea dog, learn about the renewable energy project at Cotehele Mill, understand limekilns, ketch and smack-rigged barges and the importance of copper, tin and arsenic in the Tamar Valley.
A gateway to the wider estate
The quay is a great starting point for exploring the 1,300-acre Cotehele estate. Pack your rucksack with snacks, or buy some from our kiosk, and get ready for peaceful walks with river views and secret woods. If walking's not your thing, why not jump on our shuttle bus and head to Cotehele Mill or Cotehele House.
