Ice skating adventures
Glide into January with the Eden Project’s glittering ice rink.
This annual tradition is one of our top things to do in January in Cornwall. Whether you’re a pro on the ice or a beginner, this is a fantastic activity to take the whole family along to. Just remember to wrap up warm in woolly hats, scarves and jumpers before pirouetting across the ice.
