Cornwall is a fantastic
place to visit during the October Half Term. There are lots of things to do.
The weather is often crisp but not too cold with sunny days which make it
perfect for wrapping up and enjoying your time away from the everyday grind of
work and school runs.
Halloweden is back and at the centre of this spooky event
is such things as potion making, pumpkin carving and the monster’s ball is back
bigger than ever so, get your fancy dress on and get ready for a
spooky evening of fang-tastic fun for all the family in the
Also the much loved ice rink will be
open and is sure to chill you to the bone!
If you are brave enough, hit the surf for October half term. Cornwall is
pretty famous for its surf so we’d recommend you choose an organised lesson
with a lifeguard trained surf instructor. They will kit you out with surf boards,
warm wet suits and take you somewhere suitable for the conditions and your
level of ability. See some of our favourite surf spots. If you don’t
fancy surfing you could always wrap up warm and watch instead.
All kids love a trip to the cinema and with it being half term; you will
be spoilt for choice with some great new movies. Our recommendations have to be Hotel
Transylvania 2 or the highly anticipated Pan we can’t wait to see them both… In 3D of
several ways to get cheaper tickets. If you’re a Compare the Market customer
you can save money and get 2 for 1 cinema tickets with Meerkat
Movies available on
Tuesdays or Wednesdays at participating cinemas across the county.
There are lots of beautiful beaches in Cornwall there is no better way
to spend half term than relaxing on the beach.
Even if the weather is cold visiting a beach is still one of the great
things to do in Cornwall and the best thing it’s free! We love wrapping up warm,
getting the wellies on and exploring the rock pools, a spot of crabbing and
collecting things washed up by the sea and driftwood and turning them into
wonderful works of art. What’s also great is the summer dog ban has now been
lifted so all dogs are welcome on all our beaches.
