Explore - Things to Do in Cornwall

For how to get around by public transport and other useful links please visit our Transport Page.

Cornwall has been a popular choice for the British holiday maker since the advent of the railway. The mild climate, wealth of beautiful beaches and the sheer diversity of landscape from fishing villages nestling around their harbours to the deserted mine buildings on the moors and cliff tops. Today these are still the things that make Cornwall special but much progress has been made with increasing the range of attractions and with undercover activities for the occasional day when the sun is not shining. For 101 ideas of what to do in Cornwall in the rain, follow our link 'if it rains...' You can look forward to a wonderful time, whatever the weather.

On this page you will find a selection of what the county has to offer. Click the buttons below to go to each page. Because our two carriage sites are at either end of the county we’ve made this page a fairly general overview of what Cornwall has to offer. However we recommend that you look at our local pages to plan your holiday excursions - there’s lots to do locally at both Hayle and St Germans.

For fully accessible places to eat and visit, please follow this link to our Days Out In A Wheelchair Page.
