This was a fantastic experience and highly recommended. I learned a lot about Pirates and Pirate life during the tour. This is highly recommended to anyone visiting Newquay who is interested in the way of the pirate.

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

Visited here with my wife and 3 children on 30th March, whilst on holiday in Newquay. If you have children this place is a must as mine absolutely loved it. The pirates who took us on the tour were superb!

my 8 year old disabled son ( neuro disability) visited here with his two carers and said it was " awesome." He has been telling everyone about it and cannot wait to go again. The staff could not have been more helpful and the tour guide was amazing and kept him entertained all through. We were a bit wary of... More

Visited this attraction with our nearly-four year old as he's very into pirates. He was over the moon with meeting an actual pirate! And thoroughly absorbed by all the stories and sights. He got a little scared by Davy Jones Locker, but bravely carried on, and by the end was having conversations with our pirate friend about his toy pirate... More
