Following recent advice from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, and avoiding non-essential travel specifically to holiday parks, we have decided NOT TO OPEN AT EASTER. The park will remain closed until further notice. If you have booked a holiday with us we will contact you direct. We believe it is the only responsible option to take in order to safeguard our guests, staff, suppliers and the wider local community. All holidays and all monies paid are transferable to other dates this season or in 2021. For cancellations please refer to booking conditions at here . If you wish to contact us regarding your booking please email enquiries@stivesbay.co.uk. Please quote your booking reference. We wish all our customers and their families well at this very difficult time. We urge everyone to comply with government guidelines. Best wishes from all at St Ives bay.

St Austell Brewing Experience

Find out about the history and heritage of the Brewery with our interactive tour, including digital and physical displays and Walter’s Walk; explore the Small Batch Brewery and sample some of our delicious beers with our Brewing Ambassadors.

Entry to the Brewing Experience costs just £12, including tutored beer sampling plus a pint of St Austell beer to enjoy at the Hicks bar or a bottle to take home* (*over 18s only). Children under 14 enter for free accompanied by adults, 14-17 year olds get a free soft drink on entry for just £5 and other concessions are available including for OAPs and CAMRA members.
The Brewing Experience is disability friendly and virtual tours allow wheelchair users and others who could not previously book onto the traditional brewery tour to see the inner workings of the St Austell brewhouse for the first time. Guided tour elements generally start on the hour. Some aspects of the guided tour elements are not suitable for those with restricted mobility.
Tickets allow visitors to stay as long as they choose on the day and a visit to the new Brewing Experience is just the start of the overall St Austell Brewery offering, with the free-to-enter Hicks Bar open from 9am for breakfasts until last food orders at 4pm. The Experience itself will be open 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday with last ticket sales at 4.00pm each day. Please visit our Facebook page or call 01726 66022 for any alterations to opening times.
