Nearby, Helston was originally a thriving port, however as the river silted up over the years, this ceased to be. Where the river joins the sea, is now Cornwall's largest freshwater lake. The market town has a mixture of Georgian & Victorian architecture. On Coinagehall Street is the Blue Anchor, originally a rest house for monks, which became a tavern in the 15th century. This is possibly the oldest brewery in the country selling the strong local brew, Spingo.

Porthleven is approximate 3.5 miles southwest of Helston. This charming fishing harbour also has world class surf break.

A little further along the coast, towards Penzance is Praa Sands, which has a mile of sandy beach. Helston is the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula and to the Helford River, which has some beautiful villages, namely St Anthony in Meneage & Helford Village. North Helford covers the area from Maenporth to Helston and includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Flambards, Poldark Mine, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn. With easy access to Falmouth, attractions such as The National Maritime Museum Falmouth, Rick Steins Fish and Chips on Discovery Quay, Pendennis Castle and even St Mawes Castle via a 20 minute foot ferry, are all within reach.

Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens run by the National Trust hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing most popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay boast spectacular views, well worth a visit.

Redruth and Camborne, to the north, are at the centre of Cornwall's traditional industrial heritage. To celebrate this, a new free visitor attraction called "Heartlands Cornwall" has been recently completed just off the A30 in Pool (between Redruth and Camborne). This is the UK's first cultural playground and includes a huge adventure playground made out of timber, including the custom-made "giants trap" which lives up to the legend of Bolster, a local giant, who fell head over heels for a St Agnes maid. Art studios and galleries regularly display pieces by local and national artists. There are wild botanical gardens, world heritage site exhibitions, a visitor centre and regular markets with local produce.
