Heartlands is a new free visitor attraction and one of the gateway attractions to the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Nestled just off the A30 in Pool, near Redruth in the former mining heart of Cornwall, there are 19 acres of eclectic fun to explore.

State-of-the-art exhibitions, climb-on sculptures, gardens of epic diversity, a giant adventure playscape for kids, art and craft studios and a funky café in the old carpenter’s workshop. With swathes of green outdoor space for warm, sunny days and ever-curious indoor space when it’s wet, Heartlands is all-year round, all-weather entertainment for anyone and everyone. Go see, go play, go wow!

Covering 19 acres, there is so much to absorb, from the poetically landscaped botanical gardens to the interactive exhibitions that truly take you someplace else. This is a lightning bolt of fun in a forgotten part of Cornwall that was once the richest patch of land on earth. Open almost every day of the year with a diverse menu of events, Heartlands has something for everyone, so why not visit today and see what’s going on.

On top of the 19 acres of eclectic fun to explore, Heartlands fills up its year-round events programme (did we mention we’re open every day of the year apart from Christmas & Boxing day?) with an exciting mix of farmers markets, cultural festivals, dance shows, music events, art exhibitions and theatre. Take a look at our events pages to find out more or just pop in and see what’s on – it’ll cost you nothing and you can have a cup of tea or a chat with our friendly team while you decide what to do!
