Helston is a delightful small yet bustling market town in the south of Cornwall. Midway between Falmouth and Penzance and awash with Inns and traditional shops it makes for an excellent base when touring the county. Its main street is steep and charming with a stream often running down one side
In the Domesday Book, the town is, referred to as Henliston and King John granted its charter in 1201.
Helston has always been associated with mining - the river was once a very rich tin stream. The town became a coinage town during thr reign of Edward I and more than 100 tin and copper mines, have been worked in the district over a long period of time
These days of courses the mines have long since closed and the areas main industry now is tourism ensuring a plethora of local accommodation for you to choose from.
