Get ready to embark on a swashbucklin’ voyage through Cornwall’s pirating past at Pirate’s Quest, Newquay – Come face to face with smugglers, mermaids, and real LIVE buccaneers! A brand new storyline for 2016 will see visitors transported back over 300 years to the Golden Age of Piracy and the dawn of The Republic of Pirates.

A notorious band of buccaneers known as ‘The Flying Gang’ have been sent to Cornwall by their illustrious leader, Captain Blackbeard, in hopes of finding new recruits to join The Republic of Pirates.

A real LIVE pirate from the infamous ‘Flying Gang’ will help you escape a shipwreck then lead you through the mystical caves and murky streets of eighteenth century Cornwall to the crew’s recruitment base; Blackbeard’s Tavern.

Eventually you’ll arrive at the Captain’s Ship, ready to set sail to an exotic Caribbean island and The Republic of Pirates.

Really great for the kids, but with the knowledge on pirates narrated by the pirates I learnt a lot. The Pirate actors really get involved and put there hearts into It. Our 4 year old was transfixed by them and the scary part was great fun.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to PirateQuest, the Pirated made it educational and fun. Our 4 year old was engrossed and it was good that it could appeal to all ages.

Fun for all the family, would definitely recommend. Very imformative in a very light hearted way, that had children and adults laughing along. And the atmosphere is really great, all the pirates stay in character the entire time - not a single slip up! My daughter (4) and my mum (60something) both loved it and came out with equally big...

Don't be put off if you're two adults without children - it's just as much fun this way! Initially we both thought this would be on an actual boat and were disappointed when we realised it's in a warehouse of sorts. However, once inside you forget. Great acting, great atmosphere and loads of fun! Would recommend.

We visited Pirate's Quest last week and loved it! The original plan was to go to their adult-only themed Halloween event, but being a massive wuss, I obviously convinced the boyf to take me to the family friendly version instead... And I'm so glad we did! It was definitely more my level! The actors were great and we loved learning... More

We Went here in half term with a 4yr old and baby in a carrier We weren't really sure what to expect and really hoped it would be good as a bad version of pirate actor led tours could have been dire Really pleased with the experience, we thought the sets were really good too. Reminded me of similar experiences... More

We visited back in September, and had an awesome time. My children (aged 5 and 10) were entertained from start to finish. All down to, the friendly and comical staff. Even my wife and I were entertained throughout, learning about the history of Newquay. I would 100% recommend a visit, and you have to take the 'scare' route at the... More

I visited on Monday 20th September with my Son Dexter. I visited reception to book onto the tour and was met by a young lady who was very helpful and cheerful.We returned a few hours later to find that we were the only ones on the tour. (probably not surprising as the summer season is now winding down) You find... More

Thank you for visiting Pirate's Quest and for taking the time to post such a lovely review.

It is much quieter during term time - but that does mean that there is more chance of an... More

We visited today, having not been for about 15 years. They've refreshed the whole experience, with a pirate taking you on a tour of the exhibits, and talking you through the history of piracy. It's was great fun, very funny and the scary bit must be very scary when you haven't got little ones with you. We really enjoyed it.... More
