Top things to do in January

30 December 2017

Start the year as you mean to go on with our guide to the best things to do in Fal River this month.

Shake off those January blues, and venture out this season with our list of the best events and happenings across Cornwall this month.

Visit the Museum!

With traffic-free roads, and an abundance of car parking spaces January is a great time to enjoy our award winning local attractions without the queues, and the crowd-dodging.

We love spending the day at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, learning all about the rich maritime heritage of the Fal River! With 15 galleries, over five floors the multi-award winning museum is packed full of fascinating interactive exhibits, there's so much to explore and discover!

Be sure to check out the major exhibitions Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed and Captain Bligh: Myth, Man and Mutiny before they close on 7 Jan to make way for Titanic Stories

Ice Skating at Eden

Until 17 February

If you didn't go for a spin around the Eden Project's glittering ice rink over the festive period, then don't worry - it's open until mid February.

Everyone is welcome, from complete novices to figure skating pros. If spectating is more your thing, you can snuggle up rink-side with a delicious hot chocolate or a tasty burger while you cheer on your family and friends.

  Wintery Walks

January is a wonderful time for walking in this part of Cornwall.

With ancient woodlands, dramatic clifftops and secluded beaches you're spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a place to leave your frosty footsteps around the Fal River.

We all love a crisp winter walk especially when there's a cosy spot with a Sunday Roast en route! Check out our Top Winter Walks and Sunday Lunch Combos and choose a stroll near you.
