There is always plenty of things to do in West Cornwall. Whether the sun is shining or the clouds are conspiring there are many activities and attractions. We have Flambards, Cornwalls premiere theme park as well as Treasure Park with its great selection of shops and fun activities for the family.
We are in a prime position on the South West Coastal Footpath which promises awe inspiring vistas of the rugged coast line of the north coast and the mighty Atlantic.
In times past Cornwall was an industrial powerhouse. Remnants of our mining heritage can still be seen throughout the area in the shape of the old wheel houses and chimney stacks that dot the landscape. Some mines were so extensive that they stretched several miles out beneath the sea bed. Examples of this heritage can be seen at Geevor Tin Mine and at the new Heartlands experience.
Of course, the sea has been a central part of life for the people of Cornwall for thousands of years. Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre has many fascinating exhibits covering Cornwalls relationship with the sea.
West Cornwall is also ideal if you are a wildlife fan. In Hayle itself we have Paradise Park which has a wide range of birds and other animals. Further up the coast is Newquay Zoo and the Bluereef Aquarium. If you would prefer to stay on site, there's always the chance of spotting porpoises and basking sharks in the bay.
