Half Term fun whatever the weather!

Bank Holiday is upon us again and typically it is raining here in Cornwall. After 3 days of glorious sunshine the heavens opened in style and greeted us with torrential rain and spectacular thunderstorms on Friday night, just in time for Half Term and the Bank Holiday weekend.

But, in true Cornish spirit the mizzle (for definition of mizzle click here!) shouldn’t spoil your fun and there are still plenty of things to do when the weather is a little damp – although good news is it’s set to clear up! For this weeks weather forecast in Cornwall click here.

Here is a little round up of some of the wonderful things to do come rain or shine!
