The British weather is unpredictable at the best of times but we’re barely into September and it already seems as though autumn is well and truly upon us; nights are getting colder, days are getting shorter and there’s a definite chill in the air. However, don’t let this stop you from getting out and about and enjoying what Cornwall has to offer.
There are a lot of rainy day activities in Cornwall; even if you’re not willing to brave the weather and head outside come rain or shine, you’ll find there’s still enjoyable things to do. From family days out at the Blue Reef Aquarium to exploring a National Trust property, the rain won’t stop you from enjoying your time in Cornwall.
