Penzance pirates on the prom 26th May

Ahoy me hearties – the pirates be back

Penzance set the world record for the biggest gathering of pirates with 8,000 eye-patch-wearing scallywags on the prom in 2011. Then last year, Hastings stole the crown with 14,000 mutinous pirates on its seafront. That’s a challenge can’t be ignored!

This year, Penzance is looking for 20,000 swashbuckling pirates to bring the title back where it belongs. If you want a spectacle that will stay with you forever, then come to Penzance for the Whitsun Bank Holiday where the party starts on the Saturday and on Sunday, May 26, a motley crew will gather so bring yourself and your crew, wearing at least 3 piratical items to get counted by the Guinness  World Record officials, then stay on to enjoy the rest of the party!

Easter Holiday Activities & Things to Do in Cornwall

When Spring begins, Cornwall is close to its best; with sunny days – punctuated by the occasional shower – Easter is always one of the most popular times to visit.

If you’re visiting as a couple, or travelling with a family there’s no shortage of things to do in Cornwall at any time of the year.

However, if you’re looking for something specific to Easter, there are dozens of great activities you can participate in all across Cornwall in the Easter Holidays.







The Lizard Stallions in Truro – April 5th

If you want to put a foot – or a hoof – in the past for an afternoon, then Truro is the place to be on April 5th this year.

Already a historic town, with cobbled streets and Victorian architecture, you’ll head the once-familiar clatter of horseshoes and iron-clad wheels on the streets for one day only as the Lizard Stallions entertain passengers for one afternoon only.

Drawing a carriage – specifically a two-storey Victorian Omnibus – guests can travel in true early-century style for £3 for adults and £2 for under-16s.

The Easter Trail at Lanhydrock, Bodmin – April 5th to April 21st.

One of Cornwall’s most beloved Victorian country homes with a glorious wood in its estate, Lanhydrock comes alive at Easter, inviting guests to its gardens for an Easter trail.

For £2.50, kids can take place in what must surely be one of the best Easter Egg hunts in the country; kids can feel lost in a storybook environment as they scour the gardens for chocolate eggs – yum!

Easter at the Zoo, Newquay Zoo  – April 5th to April 21st. 

Newquay Zoo is always popular with visitors, and Easter is no exception!

Included in days activities is a programme of Easter fun, including a egg hunt on the dragon trail, duck racing and even a tea party with the Easter Bunny himself! For more details on that, you’ll have to check out their website!

The Outlaw Craft Fair, Penzance – April 5th

Far from your average craft fair, the Outlaw Craft fair invites anyone with a desire to make, do or mend to head to the Porthcurno Building in Penzance to come on down and get busy.

With a range of demonstrations and workshops from over 50 artists and designers from across Cornwall, there’s something to have a go at for just about everyone. At £2 a head with Under-16s going free, the price is nothing to snip at, either.

Chocolate Tuesdays at St Kitts Herbery, Camelford, April 8th & April 15th

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, there really isn’t anywhere better to be than Chocolate Tuesdays at St Kitts Herbery!

For £4.50, anyone can get involved in an activity session run by a trained Chocolatier and make their own sweet treats from Belgian Chocolate.

Running on the Hour and Half Past the Hour from 11am to 3pm with no booking needed, we’d struggle to name a better way to spend a lunchtime.

History Detectives Egg Trail at Levant Mine, Pendeen – April 18th

Let your kids discover the way they might have lived had they been born 150 years earlier at Levant Mine, Pendeen this Easter!

For £2 a head, kids are let loose in the Victorian mine, following a trail of fun clues to learn the lives of youngsters earned their keep over a century ago, before being rewarded with a Cadbury Easter egg for taking up the challenge.

If learning that they could have been working down a mine at their age and getting a chocolate egg doesn’t make the kids grateful for the rest of your time in Cornwall – we don’t know what will!

Valentines day at The Bay 2014

There seems to be something to celebrate every month – February’s for Valentine’s day – and we love a reason to create a special menu using all the best ingredients and the most imaginative dishes to fit the occasion.

For all the romantics amongst you, we have created a menu especially for Valentine’s Day and in 2014 it’s served not only on Friday 14th, but Saturday 15th too, making each day, a day to celebrate.

Spacious and light, with views across Mounts Bay from our panoramic windows this is a place to relax with loved ones, and on a Winter’s evening what could be more delightful than sitting in one of our lounge enjoying a glass of something mellow before enjoying delicious food as you gaze at the twinkling lights across the bay to Newlyn and Mousehole.

Christmas in Cornwall – What’s on this December?

Christmas is once again upon us and many people from far and wide choose to spend the Festive season with us. After all, is there more appealing setting for your celebrations than a Cornish Christmas?

Many wonder what can be expected in if you choose to stay in Cornwall over the holiday period, with our charming region most known for it’s sub-tropical climate, scenery and beaches.

If you’re one of those people, you’ll love our guide on what to expect in Cornwall this Christmas; whether you’re just enjoying the festive menu in our fine dining restaurant, or you’re spending a little bit of Christmas in our luxurious Cornish hotel – here’s what will be at your doorstep.

Penzance Illuminations – December to January 

When you can’t walk the streets of Penzance in warm sunlight, the red and green glow of the Illuminations is a fine substitute indeed. No matter where you walk in the area, your evenings will be just that little bit brighter, with the High Street and surrounding areas a particular highlight.


Montol Festival – 1st – 21st December

A culture all of it’s own, come and experience the traditional side of a Cornish Christmas at the Penzance Montol festival. Based on the historic festivals of Midwinter and Nadelik native to Penzance, you’ll be able to see lantern parades, dancing, markets and the traditional ‘lighting of the Mock’ up until Montol Eve on the 21st of December.


Tom Bawcock’s Eve – 23rd December 

You might have to venture a little out of town for this one, but if you’re after a traditional celebration that you won’t find anywhere else beside Cornwall, the trip to Mousehole is a small trip to make.

Facing starvation after a rough winter, Mousehole was saved by local fisherman Tom Bawcock who braved the seas to bring back enough fish to feed the entire town. His catch was made into the Star Gazey Pie Mousehole is now famous for. Tom’s courage is well-remembered on Tom Bawcock’s Eve, where The Ship in replicates that pie and offers it up free to villagers and visitors alike who enjoy an evening of choirs, lantern processions and more.
