Heartlands is a FREE visitor attraction and World Heritage Site Gateway in Cornwall. Nestled just off the A30 in Pool, near Camborne in the former mining heart of west Cornwall, there are 19 acres of eclectic fun to explore.


State-of-the-art exhibitions, climb-on sculptures, gardens of real diversity, a giant adventure playscape for kids, art and craft studios and a unique café in the old carpenter’s workshop.


With swathes of green outdoor space for warm, sunny days and ever-curious indoor space when it’s wet, Heartlands is all-year round, all-weather entertainment for anyone and everyone. Go see, go play, go explore.


Set in the shadow of an iconic Cornish engine house, Heartlands has brought the former derelict mining landscape at Robinson’s Shaft back to life through a £35 million project, thanks to a mammoth amount of hard work, the support and imagination of the local community and some generous funding from the Big Lottery Living Landmark programme (£22.3 million), European Union, Cornwall Council and the Homes and Community agency.


Whether its breathing in the peace and serenity found in the Diaspora Botanical Gardens, shouting with glee after escaping the Giant's Trap in the Adventure Playground, or being taken back to another time through an immersion scape in the World Heritage Exhibitions, there's something to suit every age and interest.


Open almost every day of the year with a diverse menu of events, Heartlands has something for everyone, so why not visit today and see what’s going on.
