Charlestown Harbour Heritage
The Charlestown Harbour heritage Centre commemorates achievement and heartbreak in a unique 18th century setting barely touched by time. The achievement belongs to one man, Charles Rashleigh, whose vision created a thriving port out of an obscure fishing village nr St Austell in Cornwall.
Charlestown harbour is still home to several local fishing boats. The harbour is home to a small fleet of tall ships and during the summer season they are often available to walk around. Many of the ships have been used in feature films.
