A great day out at Charlestown Harbour
After a rather difficult start to the year, Charlestown Harbour is now in full flow. Not only is there the beautiful, unique UNESCO World Heritage site and beaches, we now even more for people to see, do, eat and drink!
On the water
We have some unique sailing experiences available on stunning classic ships Anny, Irene and Mascotte, including day sails and also longer residential voyages. Tickets are available either from the Harbour shop at the Round House or via our online shop.
This year, in addition to sailing, we are also thrilled to have Gylly Adventures with us, offering kayak and SUP tours and hire from our beautiful Georgian port. Gylly Adventures can be found on the Outer East Quay, just below the Round House or you can book online.
Food and drink
Charlestown has really become a real ‘foodie’ destination in the past few years, and in the Inner Harbour there is a wonderful range of food and drink pop-ups all with stunning quayside views. Charlestown Fish Co offers a delicious range of fresh fish dishes ranging from mussels to crispy lemon sole katsu curry to fish and chips. HarbourQ has yummy BBQ feasts and taco trays, not to mention cocktails and an ice cream desert menu. Cubs Coffee offers a wide range of hot and cold drinks, homemade cakes, snacks and crepes and The Rum Sailor is a unique bar experience, with not only over 200 rums and 100 gins but also beers and wine to sip in the Cornish sunshine.
The Harbour also boasts a number of local independent shops offering a range of gifts, arts and crafts. Gifts, postcards, local produce, beach goods and day sail tickets can be found in the Harbour shop in the Round House. Cornish Cream offers a fantastic range of local liqueurs, rum, fudge and other yummy treats. Surfbox Cornwall has a brilliant range of t-shirts, caps, sunglasses as well as lots of other Cornish goodies. Within the village there’s also some wonderful art, craft and jewellery shops to browse.
