Seaside discovery at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth
Sit in a real RNLI lifeboat, hear stories from survivors of ship wrecks, and race your own mini sailing boat across the water.
The Maritime Museum is a hit with families of all ages, with its fascinating exhibits, historical artefacts and entertaining demonstrations.
Explore nature at the Lost Gardens of Heligan, near Mevagissey
Covering a vast area of countryside on the south Cornish coast, these historic gardens are a treasure trove of secret tunnels, rope bridges, pretty lakes and adventure playgrounds.

Meet the seal pups and otters, at the Gweek Seal Sanctuary near Helston
Meet the sea lions, feed the penguins and watch the otters at play before peering into the rockpools in search of sea anemones, crabs and shrimps.
During half-term, the team of wildlife experts are on hand to train up their next crew of forest rangers. Are you ready to become an animal detective, take the creature quest and get creative with nature's crafts? Complete the missions and earn your Forest Ranger's Badge.
Train the troops at Pendennis Castle in Falmouth
Travel back in time to World War Two at this 16th Century castle on the shores of the Fal Estuary. Fall in line as you undertake soldier training, shape up and ship out in commando camp before facing the Drill Sergeant and tackling the obstacle course.
The castle is a treasure trove of secret tunnels, surprising stories, historic artefacts and vantage points to spy the enemy. It was built by Henry VIII in 1539 in response to the threat of Spanish invasion, and remains an impressive landmark today.
