What’s on this October half term in Cornwall

Wrap up and head out onto the coast path, exploring the rugged cliff tops. From Perranporth head south to St Agnes and take in the breath-taking seascapes, invigorating sea air, and the burnt amber and deep greens of the changing flora underfoot. Best of all you’ll find a warm welcome at the Driftwood Spars, the local village inn, where hearty Cornish food is on the menu and local ales on tap.

Head south to Holywell Bay, where you’ll find far-reaching views of turquoise seas, sweeping expanses of sandy beach and miles of magnificent, grass tufted and unspoilt sand dunes. See more of our favourite coastal walks here.

Get your wellies ready at low tide and walk the three miles of Perranporth’s sandy beach, discovering craggy coves, mermaid pools and the magnificent dunes. Make sure you check the tide times before you go. Stop off at the Watering Hole, the UK’s only pub on the beach, for tea and cake, or a refreshing Cornish cyder!

Halloween at Eden Project

Celebrate Halloweden at The Eden Project

See a show at the incredible Minack Theatre
With the ocean as your backdrop, it’s a theatre like no other! This October half term see the legends of the Tudors come to life with Horrible Histories, Terrible Tudors or singalong with Moana Jr, as the adventures of the Disney favourite and her village come to life! Top tip, wrap up warm and take a blanket or two.

See spectacular fireworks at Lappa Valley
There’s so much to see and do at Lappa Valley; ride the steam train around the woodland railway,  play a round of crazy golf, jump on the trampolines, hop on a pedalo swan and bob about the boating lake, and go crazy in the outdoor adventure play and indoor soft play. Fuel up after all that in the Engine Shed, their family friendly café serving hot food and drinks. If that’s not enough, marvel at the dazzling display of fireworks this half term! Check your dates and book early. Link
