Create some essential childhood memories of crabbing and sea life, pirate adventures and Cornish cream teas.
Crabbing competitions are a must and great fun for all the family. Flushing quay is the perfect spot to go and we can almost guarantee bacon bait will land you a catch!
You could also head on a fishing trip from Falmouth or take a ferry to explore the estuary, stopping off at some of Cornwall’s beautiful gardens as you go. The Smugglers Inn is a great cream tea stop after a pirate trip up the river. (Fancy dress recommended but not essential!)
There are some fabulous gardens in Cornwall, Trebah and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are particularly special. There are also some fantastic attractions to visit, Eden Project, Paradise Park and Heartlands will keep you busy for a whole day. Or why not head to Trevaskis farm, pick your own fruit and visit the farm animals, there are plenty of pigs, and sometimes piglets, calves and lambs to see.
