More Ideas of What To Do and Where to Go: 

Check out Trerice Manor, the National Trust property closest to Newquay – Trerice Manor is open daily for house tours, the gardens and a tea room.  If you like your gardening, then there are a couple of Garden Centres near to Newquay.

Last chance to visit Kingsley Village at Fraddon – which closes down at the end of Saturday 29 April for redevelopment.

Newquay Cinema has a lot of screenings going on – great if the weather’s turned a little cooler, including: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 2D; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 3D; Their Finest; Fast & Furious 8; The Zookeeper’s Wife; Beauty & The Beast 2D; A Dog’s Purpose; The Boss Baby 2D; Smurfs The Lost Village 2D.

The English National Surf Championships are running over at Perranporth this year. Free to watch.

Weather & Tide Times

The weather forecast for Newquay over the early May Bank Holiday 2017 isn’t looking too great at the moment, but, as we know, things can change in a heartbeat! So pack for all weather events and just set your mind on kicking back for a few relaxing days!

High tides are early morning for the weekend, so if you’re taking a walk try to set out at High Tide so you don’t get cut off. Low tide is at 2.20pm on Saturday 29 April, then it starts coming in again. On Bank Holiday Monday High Tide is ~9.30am, so a good day to go beach walking as you’ve got the most hours with the tide out.
