Things to Try

Adrenalin Quarry

For some heart racing, hair raising thrills you can’t beat a visit to Adrenalin Quarry. Defy gravity on the giant swing as you plummet in freefall off a cliff before swinging skywards or perhaps travel a mere 40mph along a zip wire 50m from the ground. 

Retallack Aqua Park

Try the big Wipeout-style aqua obstacle course on the Retallack Resort. Sessions cost £15 per person and include your wetsuit and buoyancy aids. The course can take up to 100 people so remember to bring all your friends and family!

Charlestown Harbour

Visit Charlestown and experience an incredible snapshot of the past at the unspoiled Georgian working port. Due to its old world look and feel Charlestown has been a popular location for TV and film crews, you may recognise it from episodes of Poldark, Mansfield Park and more. 

Porfell Wildlife Park
