We can be found in the picturesque village of Porthleven, on the rugged Lizard peninsula overlooking Mounts Bay, for centuries the scene of many a shipwreck. The centre is located in a multi-level 17th century 'china clay' building on the harbour-side only feet from the busy waters of this working port.
