Free entry into this village reclaimed from decay. An insight into the industrial heritage of the Tamar Valley. You can take a ride in a carriage or go down a mine in a little train, dress up in 19th century costume, visit a working farm. The Ship Inn has recently been taken over by chef Peter Gorton and offers very good lunches. An evening visit to the restaurant is an eerie experience - Morwellham is utterly deserted except for visitors to the Inn.
Morwhellam Quay is a facsinating living museum tucked away in stunning countryside. The underground mine train trip is to be recommended - but it is cold underground, take a jumper! The shop offers the usual range of visitor gifts, and some lovely books and local products. Food in the restaurant is good, but it does get busy. In the summer a picnic overlooking the river is idyllic.
