Places to eat & drink in St. Austell.

This popular resort was literally built on clay. In fact, local deposits of china clay were so crucial they ousted tin and copper as the area's most important minerals and created huge wealth in the 19th and early 20th centuries, making St Austell one of Cornwall's most vibrant commercial centres.

Today, tourism forms a major part of the local economy thanks to glorious local beaches and St Austell's proximity to top attractions such as the Eden Project – created inside a former clay pit - and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The oldest modern structure here is a small granite bridge that has existed since the days of Henry VIII. Other buildings of note include the 13th century church and the Menacuddle Holy Well. These are all pre-dated by the prehistoric hillfort of Castle Dore. It is thought to have been the castle of King Mark of Cornwall and is associated with King Arthur and the legend of Tristram and Isolde.

The impressive St Austell brewery is housed in a building designed by the famous Cornish architect Silvanus Trevail.
