With Easter coming up fast, there is no time like the present to start planning some family time or perhaps even plotting a special escape in Cornwall. It is a great time to visit Newquay and the region as a whole, as so many of the attractions host their own Easter events for kids in the holidays, while the coast and countryside are always there for fresh air and escapism too. Here is a quick guide to what's on in Newquay this April, along with some great value Easter and spring hotel offers to tempt you to the coast.

There is an Easter Egg Hunt with a different, for starters, as you can test your spotting skills by trying to locate various eggs actually hidden within the watery worlds on show! Fish also lay eggs after all, and there are usually a few shark and ray eggs on show, also known as "Mermaids' Purses". You might even see a few empties on local beaches, in which case the aquarium would love to hear from you as they are currently looking out for these as part of a national study.
