Top 5 things to do in Cornwall
For fun activities and things to do in Cornwall, check our recommendations below.
- Head to One2Eleven for the Best Play of the Week…
For perfect indoor play for energetic toddlers and children, look no further than One2Eleven in Helston. Little ones can engage in fun play activities in a creative setting, whilst parents can watch and enjoy a hot drink from the surrounding comfortable seating.
- … or Flambards for the Best Day of the Week!
Cornwall’s leading family attraction, Flambards in Helston, has plenty to offer come rain or shine. Smaller children can uncover fossils in the Dino Dig and enjoy the rides in Ferdi’s Funland or, if you’re feeling brave, get a thrill in the Big Ride Zone. Don’t forget, for more things to do, visit the award-winning and unique exhibitions, including the Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz.
- Hit the beach
Cornwall’s beaches are rated among the best in the world so, if the sun is shining, grab your bucket and spade and head to the coast. Why not have a sandcastle building competition; don’t forget to decorate your creation with shells, rocks and seaweed! The Cornish coastline is also abundant in marine life and children will certainly enjoy exploring the many rock pools at low tide. We love Gunwalloe beach, near Helston.
- Eat a Cornish pasty
Your visit to Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without sampling a local delicacy; the Cornish pasty. If a traditional steak pasty doesn’t appeal, there are usually other flavours to choose from. If you’re at Flambards or One2Eleven, you can grab a pasty from the on-site cafés. Other popular Cornish pasty purveyors include Philps, Ann’s Pasties and Rowe’s Bakery; proper job!
- Go for a walk
The South West Coast Path stretches along 630 miles of superb coastline, with many different trails offering stunning views of Cornwall. Whether you’re searching for a unique challenge or a picturesque afternoon stroll, there’s something for the whole family.
