The Seal Sanctuary, Gweek
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is a charity that rescues and rehabilitates grey seal pups from around our Cornish coastline. Over 70 seal pups are taken in by the sanctuary each season for various reasons - The sanctuary then releases them back into their natural environment once they have fully recovered and are ready to get back out there! Get up close to these amazing creatures in one of the three underwater viewing areas. The sanctuary is also dog friendly, so all members of the family can visit!

The Eden Project, St Austell
The Eden project is an educational charity and easily one of the most popular attractions in Cornwall. Two huge biomes built in a disused China clay pit house the world's largest indoor rainforest, along with amazing plants within the Mediterranean climate section including a few of our very own Cornish plants! Alongside the indoor biomes, you can enjoy walking around the generous outdoor gardens, and there’s even an indoor ice skating rink in the winter season! Suitable for all ages and a great family day out with onsite restaurant facilities. In peak season be sure to pre-book your tickets online!
