We enjoyed Morwhellham very much in the past and had visited several times. This was our first visit in many years and we were very impressed by the range of interesting activities that were now on offer for the visitor. Good value for money.

The reality of this atraction does not live upto promotion brochure. Does not quite deliver what it promises. But the mining train ride is excellent

It was a crisp, misty morning that made the place look wintery. It was a Christmas event at the Quay. We paid and went in and had a wander. I found a list of events that were happening and made sure I got to as...More

Go back in time and visit Morwellham Quay (or Morllam as the locals say it). You can ride the train with Rick into the Tin Mine and see what happened years ago mining tin. Rick will give you a running commentary as your trundle along...More

Not sure how Morwhellham has crept into the Plymouth Things to Do listings. This slightly run down venue, seen better days but, still interesting practical day out. It is nowhere near Plymouth but a long way up the Tamar valley and much closer to Tavistock...More
