Five things to try with the family this Easter

Easter holidays, for many, mark the start of Spring. Warm early Spring sunshine brightens up Cornwall’s beaches and longer days mark the end of Winter. There is a chance of an April shower or possibly time to get the suncream out!

Whatever the weather, there are plenty of activities for families spending time in Cornwall over Easter. Here are our five to try:

1. St Michael’s Mount

The folks at the National Trust invite you and your children to join them in celebrating Spring. 

Great Scott! Adventures are back at St Michael’s Mount this Easter with fabulous outdoor activities.

  • Join the them on a rockpool adventure to discover what lives on the shore line – 6th April, 10am-12pm & 8th April, 11am-1pm
  • Make your own willow bird feeder, enjoy the feather trail challenged and plant a sunflower on 10, 12th and 13th April in the castle grounds.

2. Falmouth Spring Festival

A festival to celebrate Falmouth’s beautiful open and green spaces. With guided walks and talks, Easter Egg hunts, garden spring clean events, a Spring Flower Show and Paint the Town Yellow Day! Don’t miss Poldark’s Falmouth walking tour on 28th March.

A full programme of events around Falmouth from 19th – 29th March. Find out more: 

3. Paradise Park Easter Egg Hunt

See your favourite animals and winged friends, and go on an Egg Hunt. Don’t miss the Eagles of Paradise Display. Then head to the JungleBarn for indoor soft play. A great day out!

4. Trebah gardens

Enjoy Spring at Trebah Gardens. Spring blooms will abound in this beautiful valley garden. Walk to down to the private beach for an ice-cream and head back for an afternoon of Easter Workshops.

5. Poldhu Cove

Take buckets and spades and something warm to wear and head to Poldhu Cove near Mullion. This sheltered, sandy beach is the perfect place to relax in the Spring sunshine. There are walks on the cliffs and the lovely Poldhu Beach Cafe serving light lunch and warming drinks. You could also visit the facinating Marconi Centre on the cliff tops to find out about the first radio wave transmissions ever made.
