If you’re looking for a more traditional half term activity to keep the family entertained or need a break from the February chill, there are plenty of indoor attractions to enjoy nearby.
The Tide is a climbing centre on the other side of the estuary in St Issey, offering different styles of wall climbing, as well as taster sessions for beginners and one-to-one coaching sessions to help build a skillset. They also have an onsite café serving fresh paninis and pizzas.
The Keep offers an immersive learning experience of Cornwall’s regimental past, set on the site of the former Victoria Barracks in Bodmin, steeped in history. In addition to the mindfully curated museum and regular guest installations, the experienced volunteers also run engaging and practical workshops and re-enactments. They are offering free tickets every day throughout half term, although these must be pre-booked. They are also dog-friendly.
The Eden Project almost needs no introduction, but it’s always worth checking out the latest exhibitions and installations. The current Invisible Worlds exhibition offers an insight into the biodiversity and lifeforms that we rely on without realising. For younger children, the half term Moomin exhibition is sure to entertain. Thrill-seekers may want to visit simply to try out the Hangloose zip wire and aerial assault course!
