We're down to Cornwall this weekend for our last weeks holiday of the year.

I know alot of places will be closed , a friend has just got back and said he was amased that Padstow , whilst still having plenty of people milling around was almost closed , about 1 in 4 places were open and alot of the eateries were not serving during the day.

We're staying near Truro , and I'm looking for any help with places that might be open. We dont mind travelling.

I need a couple of attractions where we can take number 1 son. I think the Sealife centre at Newquay and the Seal Sanctury are open but does any one have any other places I could look at.

Things like Swimming pools , pubs will ball parks i.e Wacky Warehouse , donkey sancturies etc etc anything will do.

Hi Roger,

If they`re open, the Screech Owl Snctuary is a good trip out, also, the National Birds of Prey Sanctuary. If you`re planning on doing a fair bit of driving, why not go down to Marazion and go over to St.Michael`s Mount?

Possibly a bit out of your way, but there is a Monkey sanctuary near Looe. Went there about 25 years ago and at that time they climber all over you - the monkeys that is. May be different now with all H&S stuff. They have website - type in monkey sanctuary looe, and will give you more info. Don't even know if its open.

You could go on train ride up to Plymouth, where they have a Marine Aquarium. The ride is picturesque or go in car and use Park and Ride. Hope that helps.

thanks for the extra ideas

sadly the monkey sanctury closes the end of september. We really wanted to go there as we missed out earlier in the year due to illness.

We live in Devon, and it never ceases to amaze us that caravan parks down here close up for the winter. People are touring all year round, and business could be so good for them. I think basically, it's just too much effort for a lot of them. They are lazy.

We hear all the time, how bad the 'season' was. It doesn't have to be either quiet, or seasonal if they just got off their backsides and offered even limited facilities.

WAKE UP you South West Caravan parks!!!

OK, the attractions might not be open, and the luvvies won't be on the beaches, but, take it from us, out of season is when the area is at it's quietest and most enjoyable. You can keep it in the summer when hordes of 'grockles' invade and ruin it. Try Riverside in Plymouth if you want an all year round one with lots to do for miles around.
