Cornwall is connected

St Michael’s Mount

Two days ago on April 4th, the railway line re-opened allowing visitors to travel by train to Cornwall again.

There were widespread fears that Easter breaks in the county would be curtailed unless the railway opened because, although car journeys are possible, people see from the televisions that the train line is closed and wonder how many of the attractions of Cornwall might be open.

Malcolm Bell, Head of Visit Cornwall, urges us to spend Easter there as events and activities are taking place all over Cornwall and “we are ready to offer visitors a huge welcome” he says.

In addition to those attractions that most people know about – the sea, the beaches, the quaint villages, St Michael’s Mount, the Eden Project and more. Easter brings special events.   Those with a sweet tooth can pick from traditional egg hunts at the likes of Paradise Park, Newquay Zoo and Trebah Garden, while the Eden Project is hosting its very own Chocolate Festival designed to feed the mind as well as the tastebuds. There will be family-friendly adventures with both Pendennis Castle and Tintagel Castle offering fearsome tales, dastardly deeds and if-you-dare quests. Brand new toddler rides at Cornwall’s Crealy Great Adventure Park add to the excitement, as do the first performances of the year at the famous Minack Theatre.

The Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay is amongst the businesses that have been pulling out all the stops to recover in time for Easter. Steve Matchett, says: “Our beachside location means we have a close relationship with Mother Nature and during the storms this relationship was certainly tested. Massive waves were hitting our roof and we had flooding throughout the building. But we’ve recovered; all our tanks and exhibits are looking good – we’re open for business.”
