Charlestown Cornwall

Charlestown Cornwall is a very pretty place to visit and spend a few hours leisurely browsing in a couple of galleries, wandering around the harbour side viewing the historic tall sail ships (when they are there), enjoying a drink or bite to eat watching the harbour or sea and lazing on the small sandy beach.

Charlestown Cornwall was named after the local landowner Charles Rashleigh who developed the town and port between 1790 and 1810 for the export of copper and china. View photo gallery of Charlestown Cornwall.

Charlestown harbour is still used but predominantly by local fishermen returning with their catch. The town has maintained lots of character and has not been overdeveloped. Due to its picture book looks this once busy port is now a thriving tourist village. Charlestown is home to some magnificent old ships, it is often possible to see one resting magnificently in the dock and with prior booking even to take to the sea on one.

Charlestown Cornwall is a nice, although small place to walk around. The pub on the front has a garden with excellent views over the harbour and out to sea and is an excellent place to sit for a drink or food. Dogs are allowed in the garden. I have eaten here and the menu was varied, service was excellent and food good.

Charlestown Cornwall also has a small beach with access to the sea.

Charlestown Cornwall has limited facilities although does have plenty of places to get food and drink, a sweet shop, a couple of galleries and souvenir shops and a Ship Wreck museum. Charlestown is definately a nice place to visit for a morning, afternoon or evening.
