From fun zoos to stimulating theme parks to unique projects, Cornwall has multiple options to keep the little ones enthralled. Here are the top recommendations for family-friendly Cornwall attractions.

Pirates Quest

Want a slice of Cornwall’s fascinating pirate past? Enjoy a swashbuckling experience at Pirate’s Quest. The hour-long immersive walk adventure begins with a real pirate rescuing you from a shipwreck.

Later, you will be led into a labyrinth of mysterious caves, cobbled streets, and an old tavern. Be prepared to go on a Buccaneer ship sail once you reach Captain’s Ship. An exciting and adventure-packed experience for the entire family!

Paradise Park

This award-winning wildlife sanctuary features, among other kid-friendly attractions, a large indoor play place, bird shows, penguin photocalls and parrot feeding sessions.

Watch more than 150 bird species (rare parrots, flamingos, and Cornish choughs) in addition to farm animals (at the Fun Farm) such as tiny donkeys, rabbits, pygmy goats and guinea pigs. A fun day out for the entire family in the midst of thriving nature and intriguing creatures!

Lappa Valley Steam Railway

Pull the little ones aboard this quaint steam engine as you explore the exquisitely beautiful Cornish countryside. The unforgettable journey culminates at a nature park, which features a few other trains to explore (including an exciting Thomas the Tank adventure).

Along with child-friendly activity zones, there’s mini golf, lake paddling, and canoeing. Don’t forget the utterly pleasant woodland walk. From playing driver on the pretend play trains to dabbling in table football, there’s never a dull moment here. Stop at The Whistle Stop Cafe, where your famished tots can tuck into a delectable kids menu, along with a host of other local and global treats.
