Cornwall's rich historic, cultural and environmental heritage together with its own language, Kernewek, sets it apart from English counties as one of Britain's Celtic nations. 

At Association for Cornish Heritage we are passionate about Cornwall. We aim to raise interest and encourage growth in knowledge and education amongst a wide range of people about Cornwall's diverse historic, cultural, and environmental heritage.

There is a huge range of organisations and people, many of them voluntary working within Cornwall's heritage sector. We work to promote and support their work and activities, encouraging others to take an interest in and supporting them, perhaps by actively volunteering or sharing information about their aims and goals.

Please come and visit us at Newquay Heritage Archive & Museum, run by Newquay Old Cornwall Society and Association for Cornish Heritage

Our entrance is opposite the bottom of the St Georges Road car park and adjacent to Newquay Bus Station and the Piazza.

We are open Wednesday to Friday 10.30am to 3.30pm and Saturday morning 10.00 to 12.00 noon.

Please contact us via Email

COVID-19: During the period of the COVID-19 Coronaviris crisis our office and research room at Newquay Heritage Archive & Museum will be closed. We will be working from home, extending our website information, adding and sharing Cornish information to our social media pages, please follow us.
