Adventure is around the corner: Fun days out in and around Launceston

The days are getting longer and (hopefully) a little warmer, the buds are emerging and with it, Cornwall begins to unfold, building to its busiest season.

Pubs, restaurants and cafés are starting to extend their opening hours, historic properties are opening their creaky doors and attractions are calling all visitors.

It is often said that you can forget to explore what is on your own doorstep. Luckily, there is such a wide variety of exciting things to do and explore in and around Launceston, that there is no need to travel too far for fun.

Here are just a few of our favourites!

Which type of adventurer are you?

  • The History FansLaunceston Castle is always a nice day out with interesting artifacts and a breath-taking view. Perhaps enjoy a picnic in the grounds then wander on to Lawrence House Museum. You could also keep your day on track with a visit to Launceston Steam Railway.

  • The Latte Lovers – For a simple self-care day, why not pop to The Byre shop and treat yourself to a book or a new journal? Then pop to Liberty Café, or Buddha’s Kitchen and Wellness Lounge to read or write with good food and coffee.

  • The Wanderers- For a stroll in nature and cafés with nice nibbles, then Roadford Lake is close by or bask in the beauty of the willow trees at Willow Tree Café and Woodland Walk.

  • The Family Fun Seekers– Dingles Fairground Museum is a great family fun day out with a nostalgic kick for all ages or exercise your mind and body at Hidden Valley Puzzle Park and explore their gardens and puzzles!
