If the weather disappoints, there are plenty of things to do indoors. Cornwall has a wealth of historic stately homes and museums celebrating the county’s heritage, including tin mines, castles, and attractions including, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth. Being St Ives, there are no shortage of art galleries to visit, or for that traditional seaside town fun, let off some steam at the amusement arcades.
If the weather’s awful take your pick from various indoor leisure facilities, with heated swimming pools, spas, where massage treatments are available. Hit the gym and stay fit. Choose a dance, yoga or exercise class that suits you. Indoor bowling is always a blast, or further afield there are laser tag and climbing wall venues, aquariums, as well as an indoor skateboarding park. The latest films are always on show at cinemas in and around St Ives as well as local theatre and musical productions especially during the holidays. In a town famous for painting, there are several arts and crafts workshops to sign up for and covered markets to visit.
Inside the iconic biomes at the Eden Project every day is a tropical adventure of fun and education. Or if you like to just sit and watch the storm clouds, head to the world famous landmark at Land’s End for a front row seat.
