Sample a proper Cornish Pasty

Redruth, Cornwall

There may be a plethora of pasty shops in the country but there's only one place where you can get the authentic pasty experience; Cornwall.

There's nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a locally-made Cornish pasty bursting with a humble yet tasty filling of meat, potato, swede plus a few other secret ingredients. The Cornish pasty was invented in Redruth; the former heart of the tin mining industry; as an all-in-one meal for the miners.

The town is now part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape Unesco World Heritage site, which you can explore on a bike trail. Even better, time your trip to coincide with the Mining and Pasty Festival in September.
