This is a fun activity for the grown-ups looking to experience a taste of authentic Cornish cider. If you have children, they will enjoy seeing the farm animals and the tractor tour through the orchards and for the adults it’s all about the tasting! 

Pirates Quest

For a bit of fun, head to Pirates Quest, an immersive walk through experience with special effects and trained actors who recount the intriguing tales and legends of the local area. The scary section can be avoided if you are bringing young children.

Surf School

As a surfer’s mecca, it would be rude to visit without trying your hand at surfing! Novices are best opting for one of the many excellent schools to learn with as it can be dangerous without proper guidance. If you prefer to stay dry why not see if you can view one of the pro competitions?
