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.

Armed Forces Day, the national event hosted by Cornwall

Armed Forces Day is one of the UK’s most important annual events. It’s a day to celebrate and thank the military community for everything that they do to keep us safe. This year this national event will be hosted in Cornwall.

Falmouth will be the centrepiece for the country’s celebrations (June 24 & June 25), with more Armed Forces Day events taking place around the world.

Spring has Sprung

It’s official… Spring has arrived in Cornwall.


We are often spoiled with breathtaking scenery and gorgeous golden-sand beaches, but we are also treated to an extended Spring season following its early arrival in Cornwall.


And here’s why…


The arrival of Spring is announced by Cornwall’s Spring Story once each Magnolia tree in six of the Great Gardens of Cornwall has at least 50 blooms, which this year occurred on Monday 27th February.


Heligan Night Garden

Something lovely to get you in the festive spirit.

At this time of the year, it is difficult to get excited about a night out. With the cost-of-living crisis looming over us all and world affairs which are sometimes too scary to contemplate.

If, like me, things have been a little overwhelming recently, then let me share a little secret.

I recently visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan for an evening of what can only be described as a little slice of heaven. The light displays for their current event, Heligan Night Garden are truly something to behold.

All about Autumn in Cornwall

As the countryside mellows into the colours of autumn, Cornwall takes on a golden glow and eases itself out of summer to pick up a much more sedate pace...

National Marine Week 2022

There are wonders to be found – buried in sparkling sand, under the green, pink and brown seaweeds in the rockpools, and beneath the shining ripples of our coastal waters. During the Wildlife Trusts’ summer celebration of all things coastal – National Marine Week – Cornwall Wildlife Trust are offering people of all ages the chance to join experts and volunteers as they seek out marine treasures. There’s so much to discover, from shells on the beach to dolphins and whales swimming by.

Pasties & picnics

The summer holidays are here, and 2022 brings its own challenges for us all.
