Easter Events near Falmouth 

Our Recommended Easter Events near Falmouth in 2024 are here! Easter this year falls on the 31st of March, and we’ve put together a list of Easter events near Falmouth and some others over Cornwall during the long weekend and Easter holidays. With a range of indoor, outdoor, family and dog-friendly happenings, we think there is something for everyone…

Easter Egg Hunts in Stunning Settings

The beautiful National Trust gardens at Trelissick (near Truro) are hosting an Easter Egg Hunt and nature-inspired activity trail between the 23rd March and 7th April. The expansive parkland at this site is dog-friendly, as are the cafe and the gift shop, but the gardens themselves (where the trail is held) are not. 

Other National Trust properties nearby include Glendurgan Gardens near Mawnan Smith and Godolphin Estate near Helston, they are all hosting similar events to Trelissick, throughout the school holidays. 

Pendennis Castle in Falmouth is holding their Easter Adventure Quest throughout the school holidays, an opportunity for children to hunt for clues in the historic castle grounds, before claiming a tasty treat! 

Springfest at the Eden Project is set to be a wonderful weekend, with a rainforest chocolate trail, pop-up market and interactive quiz show! This famous Cornwall destination is always a treat for both adults and children; even more so when they have special themed events happening. Eden does recommend pre-booking though, to guarantee your entry. 

On Friday 29 March and Monday 1 April, Eden also has ‘Clay Seed Bomb Making’ with local ceramic artist Anna Harris, which you can find out more about here.

Foodie Evenings

Late Night Shopping at Lynher Dairies is a one-off evening market on the 28th March, showcasing the best of local producers, including their award-winning ‘Cornish Yarg’ cheeses and fresh beef from the dairy herd. Cheese and Beetroot Toasties, as well as other samples, will be available throughout the night. Doors open from 6-8pm, with no need to book!

Meeting the Animals…

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is popular with visitors of all ages and this is the perfect time of year to see the rescued pups being rehabilitated. For Easter, they have craft activities and a ‘Golden Puffin Egg’ hunt for children, but we’d recommend a trip here for adults too! Feeding time and seal-rescue demonstrations are always fun to watch, and the site is also dog-friendly so furry friends can come and meet the marine life as well.

Throughout the Easter holidays, Healey’s Cyder Farm promises ‘apple and egg themed fun’, vintage tractor rides, and a cider-tasting challenge (for the adults only!) There will also be plenty of opportunities to meet any new arrivals on the farm, as well as saying hello to the Shire horses, Shetland ponies, chickens, rabbits, ferrets, pygmy goats, Cornish Black pigs, donkeys, peacocks and many more! Some tours need to be booked separately, so do check before you go.

Join The Circus?

For something a little different, why not dip into Swamp Circus’ Easter Camp at Chyan Cultural Centre near Penryn?! Day tickets are available for the weekend celebration which incorporates a big top, circus, dance and vocal workshops. There is also a Wellbeing Fair on Sunday 7th April, which is set to include workshops, food stalls, live music, massage and reflexology.

Visit The Cathedral

A more traditional marking of the Easter weekend, make it an occasion to visit the spectacular Truro Cathedral. There are services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, uplifting Choral Evensong, and a musical event with St Mary’s Orchestra and a star collection of soloists on the Friday evening.

An Easter Roast

There are a range of fabulous places to go for a roast lunch, just a stone’s throw from our cottages and further afield. Newly taken over, the Harbour House in Flushing is gaining a grand reputation, and of course, we love the classic waterside favourite, the Pandora Inn near Mylor and Restronguet

If you fancy combining your Sunday lunch with a garden visit, both The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah Gardens do a delicious roast (and the 31st of March is Trebah’s last one of the season!) These destinations are always popular with locals and visitors alike, whether you’re visiting as a young family or a couple of adults. This slightly quieter time of year can be one of the best moments to visit some of Cornwall’s busiest attractions before the main tourist season kicks off!
