Cornwall over the Easter weekend

Take to the high-seas, immerse yourself in Cornish culture and explore coastal towns - it’s time to put the out of office on, pack the suitcase and embrace all that Cornwall offers over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Here’s our top 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 whilst uncovering fascinating facts, history and architecture of each place you visit. In Cornwall there are 63 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 worthy 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 al fresco on the terrace overlooking the gardens. Take a peek at the Easter Sunday Lunch menu.


Try Surfing

Whether you’ve never set foot in the cool Cornish waters before or you’ve been paddling a few times, having a surf lesson is a bracing way to to spend a little time. Our friends as Eskinzo offer lessons with everything you'll need so all you have to do is worry about standing up.


Go Castle Hopping

Enjoy incredible 360-degree views of the breathtaking countryside from Restormal Castle, learn about maritime history at Pendennis Castle and wade across the causeway and discover the enchanting St Michael's Mount.


Cycle Coast to Coast 

Start at Bike Chain Bissoe to hire bikes and join the Mineral Tramway to Portreath on the North Coast. The remnants of the area's mining history is still evident as you pass through heathland and woodlands. At Portreath stop for fish and chips on the beach before heading back to Devoran on the South Coast. Here there's lovely estuary views and a wonderful village pub for a quick pint.


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 fascinating 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

The strong artistic heritage in St Ives makes the small coastal town a natural home for the Tate - a spectacular building found on the beach front. Showcasing leading exhibitions from world renowned artists as well as distinguished local makers, and with uninterrupted views of Porthmeor beach, it combines all that makes St Ives so unique.


Unearth Cornwall's Gardens

Cornwall has a plethora of glorious gardens, many just moments from The Alverton, and some don't need a car - walk to Bosvigo, travel by boat to Trelissick and take the train to Lanhydrock. Here's a selection of our favourite gardens to visit in Cornwall.


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