Interested in running a café at King Edward Mine Museum?

Would you like to run a brand new café on the site of the oldest, most complete tin mine within the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site?

King Edward Mine Museum and heritage site is benefitting from substantial funding which has already seen two former derelict buildings brought back into use as workspaces for local businesses and, by next summer, will see a new café created in the former Assay Office.

Serving visitors to the museum, occupants and visitors to the new workspaces and users of the Great Flat Lode mineral tramway multi-use trail, the café is being offered as a concession from next summer.

Note to editors

Funding for the refurbishment of the Assay Office building has come from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Architectural Heritage Fund’s ‘Buildings At Risk’ Challenge Fund and Cornwall Council.
