St Austell - map

The curve of St Austell Bay with its sandy beaches is a haven for watersports and family holidays.  The white peaks of the China Clay industry overlook the market town of St Austell, Cornwall's largest town dating back to the 13th century. Situated about a mile from the coast and within easy access to the world-famous Eden Project and Heligan Gardens, walk along Fore Street and you reach the historic core of the town to discover the fine Holy Trinity Parish Church and opposite, the Italianate facade of the Market House. The new White River shopping centre in the town centre has a cinema, restaurants, cafes and a selection of retail outlets.

Nearby is the beautiful Georgian village of Charlestown a mile away and just five miles from the popular fishing village of Mevagissey.
