And it’s not just the flowers.
Spring arrives in Cornwall much earlier than the rest of England say the scientists, eventually arriving in the North of Scotland around eight weeks later. So why not head to the warmest spot in the country as early as possible for a relaxing break.
Here’s our pick of the bunch in Cornwall throughout Easter:
Cornwall Spring Flower Show
Exuberant displays with camellias, daffodils, rhododendrons and magnolias celebrating the arrival of spring at the Boconnoc Estate.
From bare branches to the fresh leaves, first blooms, birdsong. The National Trust’s various properties and gardens come into their own in spring, with many places putting on Easter egg hunts for children through their grounds.
St Endellion Easter Music Festival
With chamber, orchestral and choral performances by some of the country’s leading musicians colliding with the intensity of the church’s intimate setting, this is a musical experience not to be missed.
The Great Eden Egg Hunt
Roll up for the Eden Project’s Easter Eggstravaganza. Take on the Egg Hunt challenge, compete in the assault course, and get stuck in to egg-themed games. There’ll be something to suit all ages – including adults.
We’ll see you at Easter, don’t forget your eggs!
