Gift Shop

The gift shop is in the main entrance to Wheal Martyn and your first point of contact for your visit. We stock a range of souvenirs for those visiting the museum and also a large selection of individual gift ideas for those one off presents. You can drop in and look for that unusual gift without entering the Clay Works.

Wheal Martyn visitor guidebook – The perfect souvenir, containing a wealth of information about Wheal Martyn and the Cornwall’s china clay industry.  Designed and printed in St. Austell using paper containing Cornish china clay

The range of gifts available vary from season to season and we also hold craft fairs and events at Wheal Martyn.
