Top tier Cornish attractions: as chosen by the Tregenna team
If anyone knows about the best things to see and do around these parts, it’s the team at Tregenna. So pull up a chair, grab yourself a brew, and start adding these top Cornish gems to your bucket list.
Walk the South West Coast Path to Godrevy Head
This short route along the coastline is a stroll for all seasons. You’ll find meadows filled with wildflowers in spring and magical sunsets throughout summer. Come autumn, you’ll also see huge flocks of migratory birds fly past on their journey south.
But one of the real highlights has to be the views across St Ives Bay and out to the lighthouse on Godrevy Island. Believe us you can’t beat them on a sunny day.
Get details of the full route on the South West Coast Path website.
Pay a visit to Paradise Park
This well-known wildlife sanctuary is a must for those with little ones in tow. As well as being able to get up close to countless species of weird and wonderful wildlife, kids can watch penguin feeding, pay a visit to the petting zoo, take a ride through the tropical gardens on the Jungle Express Train Zebedee, and blow off some steam in the indoor JungleBarn.
The park is open 7 days a week during the summer season and you can book tickets for both the park and JungleBarn in advance via the Paradise Park website.
Venture to Land’s End
It wouldn’t be a trip to Cornwall without venturing to the ends of the county. As well as that iconic signpost (that’s been around since the 1950s!) you’ll find a whole host of family-friendly experiences including Arthur’s Quest, Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience, and the 4D film, Jolly Roger.
Plus, there are plenty of places to shop, pick up a bite to eat, or simply sit back and enjoy the view.
Discover more on the official Land’s End website.
See a show at the Minack Theatre
One place that was high on plenty of the Tregenna team’s lists is the Minack Theatre. This stunning open-air theatre can be found just off the coast near Porthcurno and plays host to a wide variety of comedy, music, and theatre performances throughout the year.
Don’t fancy sticking around for a show? Stop by for a coffee in the cafe overlooking the cliffs or explore the subtropical gardens nearby.
Pre-booking for all performances is essential. For information about all the latest shows, visit the Minack Theatre website.
Get an ice cream at Roskilly’s
If there’s something we all scream for, it’s a trip to Roskilly’s. A real, working, Cornish dairy farm, a fantastic ice cream parlour, a farm shop and restaurant, and plenty of animals to say “hello” to. Need we say more?
Get the full scoop on Roskilly’s website.
