St Austell Brewery remains both a working Victorian brewery and one of the most popular family attractions in St Austell. The brewery opened in 1851 and is still one of the biggest employers in Cornwall. If you’ve always wondered what goes on behind the foreboding walls, there are regular tours from the visitor centre as well as a fascinating interactive museum.
Children must be 8 years or over to join the tour, due to the working machinery inside. Also, please note that there are many steps included on the tour too. The visitor centre is open all year round.
