Newquay is ideally positioned in Cornwall to offer families great access to a large number of family friendly attractions that both you, and your kids will love.
All located within an hours drive - we thought we'd tell you a little bit more about some of our favourites!
Don't forget - if you want any more information about these places, or perhaps some more ideas, our concierge and front of house team are always happy to help!
The Eden Project
Perhaps Cornwall's most famous attraction, Eden is unique. Built on the former site of an old quarry near St Austell, Eden offers a varied and educational day out. Aside from the two biomes where you can explore both tropical and Mediterrannean climates, explore the outdoor gardens, or eco science areas. Often featuring exhibitions and also home to the famous Eden Sessions - this place truly is a must see!
Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium
Located just a 10-15 minute walk from The Headland - the Blue Reef Aquarium is an attraction that can be enjoyed by the family come rain or shine. Its most famous feature is the glass tunnel where you can walk surrounded by turtles, sharks and stingrays, but it also has much more to offer. Explore the differing marine habitats, follow the child friendly quiz questions, and perhaps even spot Nemo!
Journey into the park by one of the beautiful steam engines, once inside you will find a whole host of family friendly activities including crazy golf, play areas, a canoeing lake and two further railways to explore.
Plus learn about the ruins of the old engine houses which still stand there. Situated at St Newlyn East near Newquay.
There's lots to see and explore at Newquay's very own zoo!
Watch the penguins diving into their pool, take a look over the African savannah enclosure or visit the lions at feeding time. With a wide selection of animals plus the opportunity to learn about animal conservation this is a great option for kids and adults of all ages - all just a five minute car ride from the hotel.
Flambards Theme Park, Helston, is a great family fun day out with plenty of great things to do! Brave the sky-high thrill rides, or enjoy the undercover soft play area. Discover dinosaurs in the Jurassic Journey and uncover fossils in the Dino Dig. Step back in time in the life-size Victorian Village and experience Britain in the Blitz in the award-winning Indoor Attractions.
Located around a 55 minute drive from the hotel, Flambards is also close to some of South East Cornwall's best beauty spots.
