The Eden Project
A day out at the Eden Project really is an adventure around the world! Walk through the tropics of Southeast Asia, South America, and West Africa, stroll through the lemon trees and olive groves of the Mediterranean, and explore the largest indoor rainforest in the world! Stumble across rope bridges, waterfalls, and rare wildlife, and keep an eye out for the many talks and workshops that run throughout the week. Rain or shine, this is an excellent day out for all ages. Dogs can be brought along, but not inside the Biomes.
St Michael’s Mount
Stroll over the causeway or catch a boat (summer season) over to St Michael’s Mount; the world-famous tidal island with over a thousand years of myths and history waiting to be discovered! A fantastic day out for everyone, explore the island’s medieval church and castle, and take in the stunning views of the surrounding Cornish coastline. Stroll around the picturesque harbour, pop into craft shops, cafes, and gift shops, and learn more about the island’s intimate community. Check the St Michael’s Mount website for details on how to get there, as it is very dependent on the tide times!
Lost Gardens of Heligan
Discover a mysterious world of tropical plants, wildlife, and winding paths, as well as stunning scenery and a vast history at The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey. This once-forgotten paradise boasts over 200 acres of majestic trees, colourful and rare plants, rope bridges, bamboo tunnels, and so much more! You can even stop for a break at the Heligan Kitchen where you can taste the fresh fruits from the plants around you, as well as plenty of local food and drink.
Carved into the granite cliffs of the Cornish coast with an incredible story and plenty of breath taking views, the Minack Theatre is a must-see in Cornwall! Visit for a tour of the amphitheatre and learn all about how it was created almost single-handedly by Rowena Cade nearly a century ago. Or if you’re lucky enough, attend a live performance – it’s certainly a unique experience! The stunning Porthcurno beach is next to the Minack, with access to a breathtaking stretch of the South West Coastal Path.
