Indoor Activities Within Walking Distance

Its important to have a few options for indoor activities within walking distance of the apartment. This is Britain and weather can be changeable but you don’t have to let it spoil your holiday. We are fortunate enough to have lots of options for when the surf has lost some of its attraction.

Heron Tennis Club is also in Trenance – you may have noticed the big white tents of the covered courts as you drove past.
We have put this in the indoor section but there are outside courts as well. Although it is a club, you don’t need to be a member to use the facilities. Not brought your racket with you? No problem, they hire out rackets and balls.
Not quite up to all the running about? That’s fine,  table tennis is available as well. 
Worn out after a hard set? They have it covered, go sit down with a refreshing brew in the café.

Blue Reef Aquarium

Aquarium on Towan Beach

We know that “indoor activities within walking distance” can mean different things to different people. We think  The Blue Reef Aquarium is definitely  in the  indoor activities within walking distance category. It’s  fairly easy to find – walk out the front door and look down – it’s hard to miss, its blue surprisingly. The Aquarium is an interesting place  for adults and children with many examples of marine life, from sharks and octopuses, to hermit crabs and starfish, and they have a tank with a walk through tunnel so the fish can swim all around you.

I think you can find this one with out a post code.

Pirate`s Quest

indoor activities within walking distance

Pirate’s Quest Newquay, is a theatrical guided museum tour, exploring the history of Cornish piracy The story line for 2020 is reproduced below.

“Batten down the hatches, because you’ll begin your adventure on board the doomed Royal Anne – a real Pirate Hunter’s vessel that wrecked off the coast of Cornwall in 1721. Fortunately for you, one of Calico Jack’s crew-mates will be at hand to rescue you from the sinking ship, lead you through a secret passage, and into the coves of Lizard Point, where Plymothian Pirate, Henry Every, is rumoured to have hidden his bountiful booty in the early 1700s.

As you navigate your way through the mystical caves and murky streets of Eighteenth Century Cornwall, your live pirate guide will tell tales of the rowdy rogues that ruled the waves, giving all ages the chance to learn something new about the real pirates that sailed the Caribbean.

Once you’ve arrived at the docks of Towan Blystra, swagger into Blackbeard’s Tavern; a scene originally introduced to Pirate’s Quest to mark the 300th Anniversary of the famous Captain’s death in 2018.”

Just in case you are worried about younger children Pirate’s Quest have an easy detour around the scary section.
