Why move to Redruth?

Redruth is a small, attractive town that was once the centre of Cornwall’s wealthy tin mining industry and evidence of the town’s lavish prosperity can be seen in its grand public buildings. Redruth now celebrates its Cornishness in gentler style by offering the best of both worlds – easy access to glorious beaches and coastal paths on the north and south coasts, with the year-round close community of an inland town.

There are plenty of independent and bohemian shops in the four Redruth shopping areas, and lots of the usual high street banks and stores including Wilko, Iceland, Boots and Superdrug.

If you like to eat out, Redruth can offer plenty of pubs and coffee shops. Try Trickies on the A30 for great, affordable food; Rose Cottage Tavern is a lovely local gastro-pub, and Penventon Park Hotel is a luxury hotel with great reviews. The town also has a cinema and a leisure centre with a pool.

Redruth is proud home to the successful Redruth Rugby Club; rugby is a Cornish passion we take very seriously.

Mining boom town

Redruth was synonymous with the booming tin mining industry in the 18th and 19th centuries, and was once home to one of the richest square miles in the country. Evidence of this history survives today with numerous industrial sites in the surrounding countryside, now the centre of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Great local schools

Redruth has many good schools, including Redruth School which has a sixth form and is Ofsted-rated as ‘good’. ‘Good’ Ofsted-rated primary schools include Pennoweth Primary, Trewirgie School and Treloweth Community School, while Treleigh Community School has been rated ‘outstanding’.

Good transport links

The town sits on the A30 which provides great access to the rest of Cornwall, and is only a 20-minute drive to Truro.

The railway provides regular access to other Cornish towns as well as Plymouth, Reading and London Paddington and cross-country services to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.

Newquay Airport is just over half an hour away with routes to UK and Irish airports as well as European destinations.
