    5 Tips For Rainy Day Activities In Cornwall

    We think Cornwall is a fascinating place whatever the weather; come rain or shine there is always something to do and see here. On a sunny day, it’s easy to decide what to do, with over 400 beaches and 296 miles of coastline to explore being outside is the obvious choice. But for those of you, a bit stumped for  rainy day activities here are our top 5 insider tips.

    1. Eden Project

    The Eden Project is the place to be for family days out in the rain. After all, you can be in a warm, dry garden with all sorts of brilliant children’s activities on tap and learn about the weird and wonderful world of nature. Find out what activities they have on now.

    2. Maritime Museum, Falmouth

    More than just a Museum about boats. Explore the stories of the people who used these vessels and the adventures they had in them. Ascend the 100ft Look Out tower and see Falmouth’s famous harbour from the skies, then descend into the Tidal Zone to one of only three underwater galleries in the world. Climb aboard a Sea King helicopter, meet the crew and discover what it takes to bring people home safely.

    3. The Falmouth Hotel, Indoor Pool

    Come and enjoy our heated indoor pool and leisure facilities, including a sauna and hot tub. Why not relax in the pool and then treat yourself to an afternoon tea.

    4. Blue Reef Aquarium

    Newquay’s Blue Reef Aquarium. Meet sea cucumbers and spider crabs, watch the giant octopus at feeding time and see baby turtles. As well as informative talks about some of the sea creatures, the highlight is the underwater tunnel, where you can come face to face with stingrays, reef sharks and all sorts of colourful fish.

    5. Water World

    A trip to Newquay’s Water World and enjoy the indoor pool complete with two water flumes, cannons and tippers, tropical fun pool and the erupting volcano! This will be sure to entertain on a rainy day.
