A little gem National Trust garden located just outside Penzance.
Owned by the Bolitho family, this small garden is at it’s prettiest in April and May.
Great for children with it’s recreation area and a hidden cove!
We particularly love the sub-tropical jungle.
Another National Trust delight, with fantastic woodland walk.
As the name suggests, more of a project than a garden, but no trip to Cornwall is complete without a visit to it.
A great attraction whatever the weather as there is also an excellent indoor play area. Daily bird shows at 3pm are recommended.
A fun day out for the family with an indoor play area if the weather isn’t being kind!
Popular with children of all ages for an exciting day. Also, has a very informative World War II exhibition.
Preserved tin mine with excellent underground tours.
The National Maritime Museum is fun and interactive and whilst you’re there why not take an Orca Tour
… to go dolphin spotting!
A small friendly zoo that you could combine with the aquarium
for a whole day out.
Fancy running on a treadmill with views across St Ives bay? Or go for a family swim in one of two pools.
