Out and about at Botallack
Explore Botallack's wild coast. Visit the iconic chimneys and Crowns before taking a break in the Count House Workshop Cafe.
Blow away the cobwebs
Stretch your legs and explore the Tin Coast. Part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage site, walk through history as you wander between pumping and engine houses of Wheal Owles and Wheal Edwards, past chimney stacks and the winding labyrinth of the arsenic tunnels along the coast path.
Find out more
Open year round, Botallack Count House Workshop has information about the history of Botallack's mining, local walking guides, as well as a cafe serving hot drinks, cakes and pasties. Open 10am – 5pm during the summer and 11am - 3pm from the end of October. You can always pop in to reserve a pasty before your walk to pick up later.
Binoculars at the ready
There’s plenty of wildlife to spot, gannets plunging into the sea, fulmars nesting near the Crowns cliffs and choughs calling to their mates as they swoop.
Waves crashing agains the cliffs just below where the two Crown's engine houses perch. Or the silhouette of the chimneys as the sun goes down over the sea. Botallack has so many opportunities to get some fantastic photos.
