The Harbour

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.

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.
