To celebrate the official opening of our fantastic new site Café - The Croust Hut, join us on Saturday 15th of April for our fun fueled Easter Egg Hunt. Explore the King Edward site, and find the hidden eggs to win a whole host of amazing prizes and lots of delicious treats to enjoy.


We will also be running a host of arts and crafts throughout the day where your little ones can make their own Easter bunnies and chicks or colour and create whatever they like.


Pop along to the The Croust Hut where you can enjoy some of the delicious cakes and home made food on offer, alongside a cup of something hot.


Come along and join us from 10am – 4pm on Saturday 15th April at King Edward Mine.


Croust (or Crowst) is a term in west Cornwall for a mid-morning break for a snack  (from the Cornish language croust).  see the new cafe website

Sunday 30th April 2017 is King Edward Mine Open Day from 10.00-16.00 in Troon, Cornwall, TR14 9DP.


This years event will be different in that another Exhibition Room, housed in the old boiler house, is to be formally opened by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall.


This follows a considerable amount of restoration work throughout the site aided by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. As is usual the historic tin processing machinery will be in action.


To mark the re-opening, a piece of music has been specially commissioned and will be heard for the first time.

There will be activities for children, static machinery on display and food will be available from the new cafe housed in the Assay Offices.
