Launceston Certificated Locations

Launceston, located to the west of the River Tamar, is a town steeped in history. Once Cornwall's capital, there are remnants of the town's significance still standing today, including the remains of the defensive wall that once protected it, and a gatehouse that dates back to the 14th century.

Whether it's exploring the town's Norman castle or taking a stroll along the narrow streets to browse independent shops, visitors will not be short of things to do.

Every Friday an indoor market is held at St Mary's Hall, while there are also monthly markets in the Town Square.

For the more adventurous types, Launceston is surrounded by picturesque countryside that's perfect for exploring.
