Cornwall over the Easter weekend

Take to the high-seas, hunt for easter surprises and explore coastal towns - it’s time to hang up the work clothes, pack the suitcase and embrace all that Cornwall offers over the bank holiday weekend. Here’s our top 10 things to do this Easter.

Do a Treasure Trail of Truro

One of the best ways to explore a new area is with a Treasure Trail. They take you via well trodden paths, and off the beaten track too, on the search for clues so you really do get to the see the very best of each place you visit. In Cornwall there are 61 trails to choose from, including one for Truro.


Eat a pasty

A trip to Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without tucking into a pasty or two. Pick up a traditional steak from one of the many brilliant bakers and enjoy.


Indulge in Easter Sunday Lunch

Three courses of delicious double AA Rosette food, beautiful surroundings, and exceptional service - what could be better for a sunday lunch together. And if it’s warm, have dessert or after dinner coffee on the terrace overlooking the gardens.


Go Easter Egg Hunting at Eden Project

Fill your Easter bonnet with chocolate eggs at the Eden Project. There’s also other eggcellent (sorry!) themed games and quests for all the family.


Try Surfing

Whether you’ve never set foot in the cool Cornish waters or you’ve been paddling a few times, having a surf lesson is a bracing way to to spend a little time. Most places will offer equipment hire so all you have to worry about is being able to stand up.


Explore Restormel Castle

Enjoy incredible 360-degree views of the breathtaking countryside, explore the 13th century keep and find a spot to stay awhile for a picnic.


Cycle the Camel trail

The camel trail is just over 17 miles of cycle path running from Wenford Bridge to Padstow. The most popular route is from Wadebridge (where you can hire bikes) to Padstow. Leave your bike at one of the many racks and explore the little fishing town, stopping for fish and chips.


It’s Cocktail o’Clock

The Alverton has an extensive cocktail menu including nine delicious signature cocktails created by our talented bar team. Not sure which to have? The team are on hand to make recommendations based on your favourite flavours.


Discover Poldark Country

Set in Cornwall, Winston Graham’s Poldark draws on Cornwall’s incredible mining heritage, and the BBC’s adaptation has well and truly put the county’s many beauty spots on the map. Use the Easter break to visit as many of the filming locations as possible.


Visit Tate St Ives

After being closed for 18 months to extend the gallery, Tate St Ives opens the first of its revamped spaces this April. The new exhibition The Studio and the Sea runs until the beginning of September.


The Alverton is perfectly located for Cornwall’s major destinations and attractions with the city of Truro on its doorstep, making it the perfect base for a holiday to Cornwall. Find out more about Easter offers in Cornwall at The Alverton.
