Fancy a Visit to a Rainforest - without the brolly?
The Eden Project is an educational charity and social enterprise that focuses on connecting people with the living world. It’s a unique experience that deserves a day of undivided attention as visitors walk through tropical rainforests, steamy jungles, and lush outdoor gardens.
If you prefer to take in Eden Project from above, those aged 8 & over may shoot across the site on England’s longest zip line. In conjunction with Hang Loose Adventure, visitors may also drop from a cliff’s edge in a giant swing, perform a base jump or take on a high ropes adventure course with swinging logs, wobbly bridges, and a mini zip line at the end.

Sun, Sand and Surf in the Southwest
With about 350 beaches to choose from, Devon and Cornwall are an easy choice when choosing a holiday in the sun. Cornish beaches are known throughout the country as the highlight of staycations and long weekends because of the fair weather, white sands, clear waters, and local attractions.
With so many places to catch the waves, it’s difficult to say which are ‘the best’; some may prefer a quiet place to sunbathe and read while another may want to swim and jet ski through sunset. Whichever your predilection, beaches in Southwest England are sure to fit your lifestyle.

Pendennis Castle: From the 1500's to the present
All year round, sites such as Pendennis Castle, offer tours for those of all ages to learn about it’s history as an artillery fort constructed by Henry VIII in the 1500’s. Exceptionally friendly tour guides will tell tales of the World Wars with such congeniality, even the smallest children will be enraptured.
After the end of the Civil War, about 1,000 men endured a three-month siege at Pendennis and agreed to surrender only after food supplies ran out. No risk of that happening here – the café on site provides a selection of light meals, soups, sandwiches and ploughmans’ lunches. There will also be no shortage of cakes, tea, cider and pastries so drop in before you leave for a friendly chat and a bite to eat.
