Bringing the past to life through recreation of Cornish stories and legends, with realistic life size figures and fantastic sound and lighting effects.
Tunnels Through Time in Newquay brings Cornwall's colourful history to life and is an attraction not to be missed. It offers a great indoor attraction for the family. The tunnels present a splendid mix of fact and fiction, offering a wonderful array of colourful characters from the county’s romantic and turbulent past. These include King Arthur and Merlin, as well as pirates, smugglers and cave dwellers. There is also the enchanting tale of Morvenna, a beautiful mermaid with the gift of granting wishes.
The realistic and well-crafted displays include dungeon scenes. These are separate from the main area so families with very young children can avoid them if they wish to do so. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome at quiet times and still photography is permitted.
Tunnels Through Time is situated on St Michael's Road in Newquay. It is open between Easter and October, but closed on Saturdays apart from during school holidays.
