Rainy Days Activities in Newquay 2017

Rainy Days Activities Newquay CornwallBelow are some rainy days activities you might like to investigate if you’re in Newquay and it rains!

The roads will be busier as everybody else has the same idea of driving around looking for something to do and somewhere to go – knowing where you can go will save you the searching time!  These activities are mostly local to Newquay, to save you from spending your day sitting in the car!

Newquay Indoor Attractions

Indoor attractions in Newquay include:

  1. Blue Reef Aquarium, formerly called the SeaLife Centre, on Towan Beach – spend an hour or two looking around the aquarium and having a cup of coffee and a teacake in the cafe overlooking the beach, harbour entrance and the Island.
  2. Newquay Cinema is a multi-screen cinema right in the heart of town, with films and shows running throughout the day.
  3. Pirate’s Quest, on St Michael’s Road offers an hour-long voyage through Cornwall’s pirating past. Booking is required as the tours run at set times and are limited numbers.
  4. The National Trust has a manor house, Trerice, just two miles inland, offering a large historic manor house to be explored. There is also an on-site café/restaurant – Licensed restaurant in the barn.
  5. Newquay’s Heron Centre, next door to Newquay zoo, offers tennis courts for hire. There are a limited number of indoor tennis courts available. There is an adults tennis court and also a Kids Zone, mini tennis court. All equipment can be hired. Non-members are welcome to hire a tennis court.
  6. Indoor bowling is popular. Hotel California have bowling lanes, but a few miles out of Newquay, there’s also a new and large bowling centre just a few miles to the north of Newquay beyond Watergate Bay, called Atlantic Lanes, which can be found in the grounds of Trevarrian Holiday Park.
  7. Pick Your Own Fruit is often indoors these days, in polytunnels. Check out the PYO Farms Near Newquay – this is seasonal.
  8. Museums in Newquay: Museums in Newquay – by seeing and learning more about an area, or its people or history, you can squeeze an extra piece of enjoyment from your visit as you gain historical perspective and context.
  9. Swimming: There’s a public swimming pool near Newquay Zoo – and a fun pool with flumes at Hendra Holiday Park on the main road close to Morrisons supermarket.
