About Helston


Independent Chartered Surveyors Helston


While originally a market town, Helston is now more famous for its Flora Day and well known for its positioning at the beginning of The Lizard Peninsula, leading to locations such as The Lizard itself, St Keverne, Cadgwith, Helford and other towns. Helston is also on the main route towards Penzance where the villages of Breage, Ashton and Praa Sands are located.


Helston has seen considerable development over the last 15 years, there now being two major superstores together with in-town facilities, and the Flambards theme park is also located nearby.  There has been considerable residential development where demand has remained good, this in part being supported by the nearby Royal Naval Air Station at Culdrose, from which search and rescue facilities have also been based in the past.  Helston also has a main road running towards Redruth, off which Coverack Bridges is located, there also being a route running towards Leedstown and Hayle, off which villages such as Nacegollan and Praze can be found.
