What’s on: Easter

We’re counting down the days until Easter, not only because we get to eat an abundance of chocolate, but because several of our favourite Cornish attractions are hosting seasonal events for all the family.

Our glorious gardens will also be bursting with colour as we welcome the new season, and we can all enjoy a picnic in the sunshine on one of Cornwall’s many beaches.

See below for our top picks of things to get up to in Cornwall this Easter and see our what’s on pages for even more ideas.

Easter at Eden

When exploring the famous Eden Project biomes this Easter, you can expect a jam-packed programme of games, crafts and activities.

Putt your way around the allotment-style adventure golf course, get your thinking caps on for a giant game of Guess What, and learn more about the ingredients used to make bread as you scoot your way around the Bread Maze.

Other games include a giant slingshot that helps tell the story of Pollen, a game of hoopla, a scavenger hunt to find the wildlife workforce, and cork-a-cow, which introduces the narrative of how food choices relate to our carbon footprints.

There will also be the chance to get creative with daily craft workshops, as well as relaxed sessions for those who will benefit from a more relaxed environment at a smaller capacity.
