What's on in Cornwall for Children during the Christmas Holiday

If you are thinking about staying in Cornwall with the family for a few days over the Christmas Holidays you will be spoilt for choice for festive events to visit with kids of all ages, from meeting Father Christmas and his elves in magical grottos to ice skating at Eden!

Here are some of our favourite activities, for the family to enjoy in Cornwall during the holiday season:

Christmas at Newquay Zoo 15th and 16th December

This event is bound to be a winner with all the family and located just down the A30 it is within easy reach of Badgers' Sett.

The kids will love meeting Santa and the cute little elves in his magical grotto while everyone gets to enjoy the antics of the naughty monkeys and merecats unwrapping their early christmas presents along with their other animal friends at this ever popular zoo!

There is also a festive candy cane trail for the the little ones to follow, plus a chance to boogie on down with the elves at the zoo's silent disco.
