FAQ's HelstonView all
Helston is no longer served by a railway, at least not one connected to the mainline. The branch-line into Helston closed in the early 1960s.
A short stretch of the line has recently reopened to the north of the town as a heritage railway, travelling along one mile of track.
The nearest beach to Helston is Loe Bar, about two miles away through the Penrose Estate. It's mentioned in the main section. This is not a beach you can swim from and there's no nearby parking.
The nearest beach that you can park close to is at Porthleven (4 miles), but like Loe Bar this is not recommended for swimming due to strong currents.
Helston is perhaps most famous for the 'Furry' or Floral Dance held on the 8th May, unless this falls on a Sunday or Monday when it takes place on the preceding Saturday.
