Rainy Day Activities in Helston

1. Brave the Elements for fun at Flambards

Ah, good old Flambards. If you’ve read our previous blogs, you’ll have heard us mention it before. The premier amusement park in Cornwall, what it lacks in scale compared to more famous parks across the U. K, it more than makes up for in charm!

There are several indoor attractions at Flambards, including the well-known exhibits that take you back in time to the Victorian Era, and experiencing Britain in the Blitz. And to sweeten the deal even more, if it’s shaping up to be a particularly bad day of weather, the park offers a discounted ticket to go in for the indoors attractions only!

2. Pasty-Making Workshops

When in Cornwall, do as the Cornish do – indulge in some proper pasties! Seek out local bakeries or cooking schools that offer pasty-making workshops. Not only will you get to relish this traditional Cornish treat, but you'll also learn the art of crafting these savoury delights yourself. It's a hands-on, delicious way to spend a rainy day.

3. Museum Adventures

Helston is home to some charming and informative museums that can keep you entertained even on a rainy day. The Helston Museum, for instance, offers a glimpse into the town's history, showcasing artifacts that tell fascinating stories of Cornwall's past. It's a great opportunity to connect with the local heritage and culture.
