Welcome to Newlyn Harbour,

As a designated port of refuge, Newlyn Harbour is open and staffed 24/7. Approaching vessels are asked to call us on VHF Ch 12.

Newlyn is one of the largest fishing ports in the UK. With our strategic geographic location, we are proud to offer round-the-clock refuge to those vessels that fish the Southwest Approaches.

Lying adjacent to some of the richest fishing grounds in the Northern Hemisphere, our iconic harbour is the fulcrum of Cornwall’s fishing industry and we aspire for it to become the UK’s leading port – recognised as a centre of excellence and for its pioneering approach.

That is why we are transforming Newlyn Harbour to provide fit-for-purpose facilities, services and expertise that support the development and sustainability of the fishing industry, as well as the livelihoods of our hardworking fishermen and all those who make Newlyn their home.

In addition to a rigorous maintenance programme that ensures the longevity and stability of our historic quays, we are currently in the process of revitalising Newlyn Fish Market.

This £1.3M refurbishment project, part-funded by the European Maritime Fisheries Fund, will deliver the spectrum of modern services, including a fully refrigerated and competitive selling platform.

As vital as this is, it is only part of our story. We have worked hard to achieve our Maritime Coastguard Agency-audited Port Marine Safety Code compliance in order to provide a safe haven for our customers.

We collaborate with innovative business start-ups to boost employment opportunities and actively seek funding so that we may maximise our assets for the benefit of harbour users and local residents alike.
