Very funny and interesting to boot! Our young children were mesmerised by the pirates, the actors were great fun and the tour was full of interesting and funny pirate facts and Cornish legends. A must see for any trip to Newquay.

Simple, effective and well priced, this is a great way to spend some time for the kids (of all ages) as well as getting some "historical" knowledge of Cornwall and it's association with Piracy. You can spend an awful lot more elsewhere to be disappointed,...More

Booked for an hours visit whilst in the area, super themed idea, well presented and appeared to entertain everyone. Just make sure you don't end up in the gibbet or the stocks.

Absolutely brilliant I went with a 12, 11 and 4 year old and my partner, it’s almost a walk around guided tour with a pirate who tells a good story line with activities to do on the way

Unfortunately due to the nature of the building we are unable to move push chairs and wheel chairs through the attraction.

Hello. A 12 year old and 14 year old are perfect ages for the experience, but must be accompanied by an adult. Pirate's Quest is a family attraction so its suitable for all ages. Many thanks.
