Attractions in Cornwall

Follow in the footsteps of giants to St Michael’s Mount, step onto a Viking ship or stand atop the canopies of a lush rainforest: the range of visitor attractions in Cornwall will take you on all sorts of adventures. While Flambards and Crealy offer the sort of theme park fun that families thrive on, kids will also be thrilled by the explosive exhibitions at Wheal Martyn China Clay Park or by standing atop the lighthouse on Britain’s most southerly point. Chug overland on a steam train or tunnel underwater and come face-to-face with reef sharks – Cornwall boasts all-weather attractions where everyone will be entertained.

Come on holiday to St Ives and you won’t be short of local attractions for the whole family to enjoy. As well as the Tate St Ives and the Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Gardens in town, you can also hop aboard the coastal railway to St Erth for a round of pitch and putt or a blast on the go-karting track.

In a destination so rich in wildlife it comes as no surprise that there are so many attractions in Cornwall where you can encounter animals, birds and sea creatures. Paradise Park is home to an abundance of exotic birdlife and its free-flying bird shows, farm animals and soft play barn are huge crowd pullers. You can also meet farm animals nearby at Trevaskis Farm and pick your own fruit or fuel up in the family restaurant while you’re there. To taste lip-smacking ice cream on an organic dairy farm head to Roskilly’s, or for a farm filled with family attractions make a beeline for Dairyland. To encounter Cornwall’s sea life without getting your hair wet visit the National Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, or get up-close to the giant octopus, turtles, sharks and other local and tropical marine species at Newquay Aquarium.

For rainy days there’s nowhere more inspiring than the iconic biomes of the Eden Project and the interactive exhibits of the National Maritime Museum – where you can board a Viking ship, find out what it’s like to live in a lighthouse and dive into Cornwall’s seafaring heritage. At Porthcurno Telegraph Museum you can step back into a time when Cornwall was at the forefront of world communications, or, if you want to play lighthouse keeper for real, climb the tower of the Lizard Lighthouse and track ships, sound a foghorn and learn Morse code.

For thrill seekers there’s much more than Crealy and Flambards for some white-knuckle fun. Soar across a quarry on a zip wire at Adrenalin Quarry, hit The Track at Portreath for some serious BMX racing and ramp riding on your bike, or practise your skateboarding skills at Newquay’s Wooden Waves.
