Easter at National Maritime Museum Cornwall

Join the Cornish Caretakers for a hilarious and informative show, starring Ed Rowe (Kernow King), as they bring to life six Cornish men and women from history who changed the world. The Easter family fun continues with a range of activities including Cornwall-themed craft workshops and a museum trail that explores stories of the county’s heroes.

There’s plenty more to explore too. Uncover a wealth of history in 15 galleries over five floors, jump aboard boats, climb the 100-foot Lookout Tower, go underwater in the Tidal Zone, uncover ocean adventures and survival stories, and sail miniature boats on the Waterfront Boat Pool. Plus, young adventurers can let their imaginations run wild in the Skull Island Play Zone.

  • The gardens themselves recommend at least four hours to have a look around. Visit Cornwall suggest you could easily stay there all day! A lot depends how interested you are in gardens, plants, etc and what time of the year it is...

  • Yes, very much so. With a choice of beaches everybody should find something to do. From surfing to sandcastles, Bude has the perfect beach.

    Add to that a golf course, a canal to walk along or explore by kayak, the South West Coast Path and a nice range of places to eat and drink, we think Bude is the perfect family destination.

  • Land's End is the legendary Cornish destination that has inspired people since ancient Greek times when it was referred to as 'Belerion' – Place of the Sun. It's one of Britain's best loved landmarks, famous for its unique location and beautiful scenery and the finishing/starting point of many trips from/to John O Groats.

  • You can drive via either the M4 and M5 to Exeter and then take either the A30 or A38 depending on where in Cornwall you are heading.

    You can also use the M3 and A303 from west London.
