34 Egg-citing Things To Do This Easter In West Cornwall - Easter 2019

Are you going to be down here in West Cornwall for the Easter school holidays? We are and we have lots of family visiting too. I've been trying to plan out what we are going to do with 7 children staying with us (eek!).

Lots of the big attractions are putting on special Easter events (some might say with FAR too much chocolate on offer). There are lots to choose from, so hopefully my little snapshot of things to do will help you decide what you will do.
