Easter is a time for family, friends and fun. If you’re looking for something to do in Cornwall this year, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the best Easter activities in Cornwall for 2023.
1. Visit Newquay Zoo
A guaranteed fun-filled day for all the family! You can always rely on Newquay Zoo for an exciting Easter, perfect for animal lovers of all ages.

They often put on some eggstra activities for the little ones to enjoy over Easter, so this is a great choice to make lasting family memories.
2. The Bluebell walk at Enys Gardens
The gardens at Enys are a perfect place for a peaceful walk. The bluebells are in full bloom and the paths are scattered with their petals – a great spot for a whimsical photo op! The gardens are vast and there are so many different paths to choose from, so it’s easy to find a quiet spot to yourself. Last year, the garden hosted its own Easter egg hunt, so look out for what’s on during your visit! Just a 38 minute drive South from Newquay.
3. Take the kids for a surf lesson!
Surfing is a great way to spend time with your family, and what better time to do it than Easter? The waves will be up and the weather is usually great this time of year.
There are a lot of surf schools in the area, so finding one won’t be a problem. Escape Surf School has 2 ex-pros on the team, so well worth a call! Kids never forget that time they went surfing in Cornwall, and they’re sure to brag all about it to their friends! So why not take the plunge and sign them up for a lesson this Easter? You might very well inspire a life-long passion.
