St Austell was originally just a village centred around its church, but when tin mining grew up in the area during the 18th century the village turned into a town and eventually became one of the ten most important commercial centres in Cornwall at that time.
Tourism is very important here now as in most of Cornwall and St Austell has a small museum, a Brewery Museum and Visitor Centre and a good selection of public houses and places to eat.
Its proximity to other main attractions in the Cornwall area also makes St Austell a very popular tourist resort.
