When the weather turns and the heavens open, don’t despair - there are still plenty of things to do around Cornwall come rain or shine.

Hit the surf

When you’re enjoying the sea, what does a little drizzle matter? Head out to the coast and hit the surf where you can make the most of the great waves that come with this time of year. With surf schools available around the county it’s an activity that everyone should try.

Head to the woods

Whether you pull your wellies and waterproofs on and head out on one of the walking trails, or get muddy on your mountain bike, Cardinham Woods is a great place to explore whatever the weather.

Visit the Eden Project

When the rain’s pouring down outside, why not visit the rainforest or the Mediterranean? A fantastic family day out, from discovering all that the gardens have to offer, to the many children’s activities available - you’ll find plenty to keep everyone entertained at the Eden Project.

Splash about at Water World

If warmer water and indoor heating sounds more appealing than the sea then head to Water World in Newquay. The indoor pool boasts two water flumes, water canons and even an erupting volcano, ensuring there’s plenty for the kids to enjoy.

Learn to climb

Bringing the outdoors inside, why not give climbing a go? There are a variety of indoor climbing centres to visit around the county, allowing everyone to try their hand at this fun and challenging activity.

Explore the local landmarks

Whether you head to a castle, one of the many beautiful National Trust properties, the Royal Cornwall Museum or National Maritime Museum, you’ll find fascinating history around every corner in Cornwall.
