“24 hour Tesco for your essential groceries. Take the LINK Road (first left) when you exit the A30 on your way down to Ta Mill and follow to end before turning right at mini roundabout. You will see TESCO on your right.”

Transportation
“The Launceston Steam Railway links the town of Launceston with the hamlet of Newmills. Trains are hauled by steam locomotives built at the end of the 19th century. Tickets are valid all day, so visitors can have as many rides as they wish. At Newmills, there is the riverside Farm Park whilst at Launceston Station there are a museum, caf', and shop. The car park is on the site of the former LSWR station.”

Landmark
“Set on a large natural mound, Launceston Castle dominates the surrounding landscape. Begun soon after the Norman Conquest, its focus is an unusual keep consisting of a 13th-century round tower built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, inside an earlier circular shell-keep. The tower top can be reached via an internal staircase but once reached, offers breathtaking views of the historic town and countryside. Once the administrative headquarters for the Earl of Cornwall, it was a significant location where control could be kept over the various estates in the area. The castle has a colourful history as a prison of which George Fox, founder of the Quakers, was the most famous prisoner.”

Establishment
“Set on a large natural mound, Launceston Castle dominates the surrounding landscape. Begun soon after the Norman Conquest, its focus is an unusual keep consisting of a 13th century round tower built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, inside an earlier circular shell-keep. The tower top is now reached via a dark internal staircase. The castle long remained a prison and George Fox, founder of the Quakers, suffered harsh confinement here in 1656. A display traces 1,000 years of history, with finds from site excavations. Don’t miss climbing to the battlements for impressive views.”

Museum
“Housed in a fine Georgian building dating from 1753, in a street John Betjeman described as “having the most perfect collection of 18th century townhouses in Cornwall”, Lawrence House Museum is a real find for visitors to Cornwall. It welcomes many school and other groups during the course of its season, which runs from April to October. Entry is free to all, though donations are always welcome. There is something for everyone at the museum. The collections are housed in themed rooms featuring local history, toys to play with as well as to admire, Launceston’s famous men including John Couch Adams the discoverer of the planet Neptune, a forerunner of the juke box: a working polyphon, powered by clockwork, a rare herbarium: six volumes of over 1,000 pressed plants gathered from the Launceston area between 1881 and the 1920s. and a meticulously crafted 3mm scale model of the Launceston Southern Railway Station. The former drawing room has stunning views over the lovely garden and is used by the town mayor from time to time as his ‘parlour’.”
