Uncover the real Camborne

Welcome one and all, to Camborne. We’re a lively town, with a proud heritage of discovery, skill and good, honest hard work.

Cornwall’s deepest mine is here, and Richard Trevithick’s steam carriage – the forerunner of trains and motor cars – was built and tested on our streets. In fact, skills and machinery from Camborne have touched every continent on earth. And we still have plenty for you to discover today. Like a town centre packed with character, unique traders, local culture… and the time-honoured, Cornish welcome.
