With the Easter holidays just around the corner, there is an abundance of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Whether it’s an activity on the beach or a visit to one of Cornwall’s attractions, here are our favourite things to see and do during your stay this Easter.
Walk the South West Coast Path
Walk onto any beach in Cornwall and you’ll spot part of the South West Coast Path to your left or right. Whether you choose to explore the rugged north coast and its hidden coves or the tropical south coast, you’ll find something different and exciting each turn you take.
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.
Head to many beaches in Cornwall at low tide and visitors will be pleasantly surprised with hundreds of rockpools just waiting to be explored. You’ll be treated to a natural display of fascinating and tough creatures, including the Cornish Sucker fish, Worm Pipefish and the Common Shore Crab.
The Great Eden Egg Hunt
Every bit as good as the hype, the Eden Project is on Cornwall’s essential tick list. Outstanding on a sunny day and a good choice when it rains, Eden is an inspired blend of indoor and outdoor fun. Dubbed the eighth wonder of the world by some, this dramatic global garden is housed in tropical biomes the size of 30 football pitches.
Make the most of the Spring sunshine and get out and about with a forage that will take you deep into Cornwall’s woodlands, hedgerows and on the coast. From Cornish mussels and rose chips to wild herbs and edible plants, you’ll find plenty of wild foods great for cooking.
