Top five things to do in Cornwall this Easter

Back to blog

Cornwall is full of buzz and activity during Easter. Here is a list of our top five things to do this Easter break…

Easter Egg Hunts

Tintagel Castle – English Heritage

Can you crack the clues and complete their Easter trail? From 29th March to 14th April English Heritage properties all over the country will be hosting Easter trails. Tintagel Castle is the nearest to Watergate Bay and they will be hosting a fun-filled Easter event suitable for the whole family.

Lanhydrock House and Trerice House – National Trust

Cadbury are supporting the National Trust again this year to bring the magic back to Easter with traditional fun and games for all the family in beautiful surroundings at over 250 locations across the UK. These include our local National Trust properties Lanhydrock House, near Bodmin and Trerice House, near Newquay.


St Endellion Easter Music Festival

From the 29th March – 7th April, St Endellion Easter Festival will be returning. Throughout the festival, a mix of amateur and professional musicians will be performing, as well as chamber, orchestral and choral concerts.


Trereife Easter Food and Craft Fair

Trereife House is pleased to be hosting its fourth Easter bank holiday Food and Craft Fair. A full line-up of entertainment is on offer set within the spectacular grounds of Queen Anne Manor House, including cookery and craft demonstrations for the adults and an eggs-treamly popular Easter egg hunt for the children. The children can also get involved in the Funky Food workshop, listen to enchanting story tellers or be amazed by magic shows.

Freaky Nature at the Eden Project

Eden’s Freaky Nature returns this Easter bank holiday but with a new twist! This year Eden is exploring the world of freaky food; where it comes from and how plants play a vital part in food production. They are also uncovering the secrets of plant survival; how they eat and more importantly, how they avoid being eaten themselves. For an additional £2.50 you too can experience the benefits of being sticky, put on a velcro suit and stick yourself to the Sundew Velcro Wall.


Take the dog for walk on Watergate Bay

We love dogs at Watergate Bay and we happen to know they love playing on our beach! Why not bring the pooch for a walk along the shore and leave us an Easter message in the sand? You can tweet us images @watergatebay or connect with us on Instagram using #watergatebay. After a long stroll on the beach pop into The Beach Hut for an Extreme Hot Chocolate, again dogs are more than welcome!

From all of us at Watergate Bay, we hope you have a lovely Easter! Let us know what you get up to.
