Cornwall’s Family Attractions

Those chocolate box destinations and idyllic fishing villages may grab all the headlines, but Cornwall is also famed for its rather long list of top family attractions

Because, when the weather isn’t being so kind – and a day at the beach simply isn’t an option – we all need something to help us keep the kids entertained…

Fortunately, there’s so many fantastic attractions in Cornwall that you will be spoilt for choice. Here we pick out just a handful of our favourites – all of which are not too far from our luxury holiday resort

Flambards Theme Park

If you like your entertainment to be of the adrenaline-fuelled and white-knuckle variety then head over to Helston and visit Cornwall’s largest theme park, Flambards. There’s something here for all the family (and your little ones probably won’t want to leave!)

Flambards Firework Spectaculars will return in August on the 5th 10th 12th 17th 19th 24th and 26th with rides open late and family entertainment from an array of tribute acts, followed by the fireworks, all included in the price of general admission.
