Easter Weekend in St.Ives
16th April 2019
With a six week heatwave forecast, starting at Easter (YAY!), we couldn’t think of a better time to be visiting us here in St.Ives, Cornwall. As always, there is plenty to see and do for all the family so here’s a round-up of ideas to get you started from the Polmanter team…
Lelant Easter Egg Hunt
Challenge the children to a local Easter egg hunt in Anne’s Wood, organised by the Badger Pub in Lelant. Bring your own bucket as you hunt around the small woodland area for the hidden chocolate.
£2.50 per child, with all money raised going to Children’s Hospice South West.
Consols Pond Sailing Boats
Join the local tradition of gathering at Consols Pond on Good Friday from 10am-12noon as families launch their sailing boats across the water. Many of these boats have been handed down through generations since the start of the tradition in the 1900s.
Originally sailors and their children would head to the harbour to sail model boats to acknowledge the miniature boats their ancestors would launch to ensure safe passage at sea.
Take the 9.45am site bus towards town and ask to be dropped off at Consols pool to save problems parking. Its less than a mile downhill from there to walk into St Ives afterwards.
‘Cats’ at KidzRUs
Due to popular demand, the Kidz have put on an extra date for their latest show – Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats – on Friday 19th April at 7.30pm – Check out kidzrus.net to book tickets
Paradise Park, Hayle
Paradise Park in Hayle is home to a variety of multi coloured birds, farm animals and even penguins! As well as the animals, there’s the JungleBarn indoor play area and a special Golden Egg Easter Challenge.
Wild Spring Hare, Rogue Theatre
The Rogue Theatre have created a real name for themselves as the must-see immersive theatre company that hold their performances in the woods. This Easter they showcase the tale of the Wild Spring Hare. Go and lose yourselves in the wild wood and find yourselves in even wilder tales, collect the clues and follow the Hare to the Woodland King.
£8.50 per person | Children 3 years and under FREE
St.Michael’s Mount, Marazion
Get involved with an Easter Trail Extraordinaire at St.Michael’s Mount, a fun way to learn more about the history of this magnificent place.
The Stable Bar & Restaurant, Polmanter
