Easter activities with the kids in Cornwall

There’s loads of great stuff happening over the Easter holidays in Cornwall. If you’re looking for ideas for family-friendly days out, take a look at our top recommendations:


1. Get crafty with Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum. Alongside their new ‘On Thin Ice’ polar exhibition, they’re running Pole to Pole – ‘make and take’ craft activities for children during the school holidays. Sessions run from 12pm-3.30pm each day from 9-21 April.

2. Get Easter egg hunting with the National Trust. Try an egg-citing trail around the gardens at Lanhydrock (plus lots of fun activities throughout the school holidays from circus skills to craft workshops) or head to Cotehele for an alternative Easter egg trail through the woodland (11-14 April).

3. Get active at Eden. A firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, Eden never fails to delight families with its holiday activities. This Easter, they’re running Shaun the Sheep: Championsheeps Live. Running between 9 April-2 May, there’s a host of activities that kids and parents can get stuck into – think sports day with a difference! From space hopper races to cabbage football keepie-uppie and the farmyard assault course, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.

4. Get historial at Pendennis Castle, Falmouth. Built by King Henry VIII, the castle’s helped to defend the country against invasion for centuries, and played a big part in WWII. There are some fantastic interactive exhibits hands-on things for children to explore. Over the Easter holidays, they’re also running an Easter Family Fun Trail to celebrate the launch of HOP, the latest animated film from Universal Studios.

5. Get adventurous with Active-8. There’s variety of family activities to choose from, including kayaking, horse riding, sailing and rock climbing. Their ‘Wet and Wild’ day is one of the most popular and takes place very close to Bosinver. Early booking is recommended.

Of course, there’s so much to do here at Bosinver that you might actually have trouble dragging the kids away from the delights of animal feeding, the play barn and den-building in the woods…
