An award-winning, evocative museum and visitor centre based around the historic port and mine workings on the River Tamar. Here in the heart of the spectacular Tamar Valley, amidst towering cliffs and gently rolling farmland, a lost world lives again.

Costumed staff welcome visitors to the restored port and help to transport you back to the bustling 1860s when heaps of gleaming copper ore filled the quays and a forest of ships' masts lined the river. All human life is here as you explore the busy assay office, marvel at the
over-crowded miner's cottages and stroll through the delightful, walled gardens.

The Wharf Arts and Entertainment Centre in Tavistock is a remarkable, community based and volunteer led project that, since 1996 has been successfully at the heart of the artistic life of West Devon and East Cornwall.

Set in the centre of Tavistock’s prime recreational area, close to Meadowlands Swimming Pool, the Library and the town’s historic Meadows, the 19th Century Grade II listed warehouses known as The Wharf were converted from buildings used to store copper ore, tin and lead from numerous mines in the area.
