As titled, my daughter of six loved it. The pirate host who took us around was the highlight of the attraction and interacted with the group all the way through and I found him to be very informative. For some reason I was chosen for to sit in the stocks which Maddie thought was hilarious! The whole experience took just... More

Great rainy day attraction. My 3 boys aged 7-10 years loved it. My husband and I enjoyed it too. We all learned lots about Cornish and Pirate history. We are seriously considering holding our son's birthday party here next year.

We went as it was a rainy day but it was a quite period so just me and my partner went in but we received the whole experience. The pirates kept in character and it was very entertaining and informative. The lady on the front desk was also friendly and even offered to charge my partners phone. Although we went... More

We were given a booklet on our caravan site where pirate quest was advertised. I was initially worried it may be scary for young children, however, there are opportunities to avoid the only 'scary' area - but I have to say my 4 year old loved it all! (I hid behind him!). The tour guide never slipt from character, he... More

Thank you for your review and recommendation about Pirate's Quest. As all our tour groups are quite small - a maximum of 12 and led by a Pirate guide - it does mean that we can pitch the story to suit the group visiting so pleased to hear your 4 year old enjoyed the experience. Best wishes, Nikki Smith More

We found this attraction completely by accident as we parked opposite following the signs for the aquarium. The exterior does not prepare you for the excellent experience within so do not let that put you off. You are whisked into a world of piracy and cornish legend with your guides delivering a tour which succeeds in finding a balance of... More

Came across Pirate's Quest by accident whilst parking in the car park opposite. We weren't sure what to expect from the exterior but we were really pleasantly surprised inside with the great welcome from the staff! Reasonably priced, and the pirate tour guides were friendly, child-focused, and had great sense of humour. The tour combines pirate tales with other aspects... More
