Porthcurno Telegraph Museum (Cornwall)

The Telegraph Museum tells the story of how submarine cables from Porthcurno beach connected all corners of the world.

The Telegraph Museum along with a large collection also includes the only complete working telegraph station left in the world.

Visitors can explore:

  • Eastern House, home to the World’s biggest telegraph station from the turn of the 20th Century.
  • Grade II listed Cable House where the global network of cables came ashore.
  • Secret World War Two tunnels, built to protect this critical communications hub from attack.


The museum is open daily from Easter until the end of October and at various other times throughout the winter.

Our weather forecast for Penwith Peninsula in Cornwall is split into two widgets. The first shows a timeline containing temperature, wind, sunrise/sunset and chance of rain, whilst the second shows the forecast for the week ahead including severe weather alerts when available.
