Charlestown Harbour is set on the rugged, stunning, South Cornish Coastline. Charlestown is the last open 18th Century Georgian harbour in the UK and is proud to be a UNESCO world heritage site. When you enter Charlestown Harbour you are transported back in time. The Harbour has a unique history and geography and remains a vibrant working port, with classic Tallships, beautiful beaches and great places to eat and drink whilst enjoying the breath-taking views.
In the light of recent developments surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, Charlestown Harbour will remain closed to the public until further notice. The safety of the public and our staff are paramount and it is for that reason that we are also closing the beaches. We urge people to stay at home during this time and practice social distancing. It is crucial that we all take responsibility for our actions and consider other people at all times. Charlestown Harbour would also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all NHS and other frontline staff for their hard work and dedication during this difficult time. We look forward to the time when we can share our beautiful harbour with you again, until then, stay strong, stay positive and stay safe. The Team at Charlestown Harbour
