Take control of your very own Segway exclusively with us in Cornwall in two locations; GOONHILLY SATELLITE STATION near Helston, plus NEWQUAY at Hendra Holiday Park. We have one of the largest fleets of Segways in Europe, with the i2 on-road machine, the x2 all terrain off-roader. Experience this unique form of transport, likened to gliding on a magic carpet. Riding a Segway is really easy and accessible to most ages and abilities (subject to weight restrictions, see terms and conditions on the tours page) and most importantly GREAT FUN for everyone. As seen on television and film, from Dr Who to the Gadget Show to Hollywood blockbusters.

Went to the Goonhilly site with my friend, I had done segway before but my friend was a novice - its very easy to learn as my friend beat me in all the races! It was great fun and Paul, our instructor, was very patient and looked after us really well. We'd definitely recommend this activity.

my wife gave me the gift of a Segway experience at Goonhilly in Cornwall. The site is in the shadow of "Arthur" one of the biggest satellite dishes at the Goonhilly Downs satellite communications centre. I had ninety minutes of learning and play both on the basic Segway but for the most part on the off road Segway. Steve my... More

We have been looking at Segway tours, as an activity to do while on holiday abroad. We wanted to do a trial run before booking anything, so we booked a lesson at Cornish Segway, Goonhilly. Brilliant!! our instructor, Paul, took us through he operation of the machine and explained in detail what to expect. After a lesson with the machine... More

We took our daughter for a birthday treat and we're so glad we gave it a try. The price means that it isn't something you could do every week but as a treat we loved it. At the end of the session I was grumbling to my wife that it felt like we were finishing earlier than the 90 minutes... More

Exhilarating challenge. We were given a thorough training before being given a freer reign and taking part in challenges. The kids loved it.

I missed this on my last visit to Cornwall due to the weather and couldn't wait to have my first go on a Segway. Totally enjoyable! Tony was our instructor and he was excellent. Very clear information all the way round and plenty of patience which is what you need with these 'sporty' things (and non-sporty people like me). It... More

We decided to book ourselves onto one of the Segway courses for a family birthday and I am pleased to say it was money well spent. Not only did we learn how to fully use and manovere the Segway, we had a full tour of the resouvoir on the way round. It was a truley pleasurable experience. The initial training... More

spent a couple of hours at Goonhilly riding Segways. A little expensive for a family but great fun. Good tuition to start and then it gets a bit competitive. All in all would certainly recommend it and I'm sure I'll be back for more.

Our party of twelve all agreed that Cornwall Segway does a first class job at their site at Hendra in Newquay. The whole afternoon was very well organised and great fun and at £30 for two hours was also fantastic value. Highly recommended

Had a great morning at the Newquay Segway, very welcoming and fun staff, no waiting around, went straight into riding around on the segway's. Drove off steep mounds, weaved in and out of trees, across the obstacle course which included steps, bumps, and gravel. Very worth the visit and money.
