Helston is a natural choice for holidaymakers who fancy a scenic escape with medieval buildings, scenic walks by the sea and top-quality food.

Where to Go in Helston

Undoubtedly, one of the best things to do in Helston is take a trip to the beach. Easy to access from the town, you can catch a bus to take you to seaside villages such as Porthleven that make perfect spots for surfing and swimming while also enjoying nearby facilities where you can grab some grub and a drink.

Established back in 1619, the Lizard Lighthouse Heritage Centre marks the most southerly point of mainland Britain Offers, making it the perfect spot for a photo opportunity for you to remember your trip. Whether you opt for a self-directed or guided tour, the marvellous 19-metre high lighthouse tower is guaranteed to provide incredible views across the coastline that you are sure to enjoy.

Nearby at Lizard Point is Kynance Cove, a stunning tidal beach renowned for its flawless white sand, turquoise waters and dramatic cliff edges. There are also plenty of cliff-top walks with incredible views over the coastline but be sure to arrive early in order to avoid any disappointment, as Kynance is a very popular place to visit that can get incredibly busy during the summer months.

What to Do in Helston

A 10-minute car ride from the town centre will take you to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, where you can hear about incredible rescue stories and even meet some of the seal and sea lion residents. Being the only working Seal Hospital in Cornwall, a visit to the centre offers a unique opportunity to gain insight into the experiences of marine animals and experts as well as get to know the lovable patients.

Catch an adrenaline rush at Helston’s very own theme park, Flambards, where there are plenty of exciting rides for all of the family to enjoy. Along with thrilling options such as Hornet’s Rollercoaster and the Skyraker, the park is also home to immersive attractions that will take you back in time to the cobbled streets of the Victoria era.

Based three miles north of Helston and set to reopen in Spring 2022 is the Helston Railway. You will get the exciting opportunity to embark on a 25-minute traditional steam train journey along a restored railway line as well as grab a bite to eat along the way in the buffet carriage.

Best Time to Visit Helston

Considering the stunning coastline near the town, it is definitely worth visiting Helston when the weather is likely to be at its best. Usually getting its highest temperatures around late July to early September, it would be best to consider visiting during these summer months.
