What to do in Newquay when it rains

Hi there

I'm going to Newquay 3rd - 10th August in a group of 9 between the ages of 18 and 21. Were a bit worried about what to do if it rains, as the weather has hardly been great recently. Could anyone tell us any good places to visit?

Hi Bethboo

Ideas.....YES surf - you won't get any wetter!!! The Zoo is a good idea as is the aquarium in the centre of the town.

Newquay does have an indoor pool too near the zoo or there is Hendra Holiday park just outside Newquay which again has a pool and is open to non residents.

You could bowl at the Hotel California or watch the weather from the Brasserie at the Headland Hotel or Fistral Blue whilst having a coffee or a drink, hopefully with the rain holding off long enough for you to walk along the beach first.

Or you could take the bus into Perranporth do the same on that beach then visit the Watering Hole, if you do that on Sunday you may get some live music in the afternoon, though the bus times are different.

You could take the bus into Truro and go to the cinema - there are regular services between Truro and Newquay. Some are shorter than others, but you get to see a bit of Cornwall and stay dry!

....or take a trip out to The Eden Project at Bodelva near St Austell- it's a wonderful day out and totally not just for plant and garden fanatics.

Don't worry - we have just been for a week and it was red hot despite the floods in the rest otf the Contry!

Although if it does rain I would recommend a visit to St. Austell Brewery!
