Seal off the coast of Cornwall, attractions to see this spring

Now it is officially spring in Cornwall, storms are passing and weather is getting warmer, we have put together some of the best reason to visit Cornwall in the spring, from flowers and wildlife to food.


March 10 to 28 is the time of the Falmouth Spring Festival, and offers an explosion of colour as the town is painted yellow. An energetic two weeks of family fun is on offer plus a weekend of folk and cider.

Then there is the Cornwall Spring Flower Festival on April 2 and 3. There will be over 100 trade stands boasting brilliant coloured flowers, hosted on the grounds of Boconnoc House and is the start of the Cornish garden mania.

Flowers on the roadside

As you drive into Cornwall and travel along the gorgeous country roads you will get the chance to see the roadside ablaze with colour. Daffodils have been blooming since before Christmas and as the weather gets warmer, more colourful flowers will be seen, including a chance to see some bluebells.

Best time to see seals

The cold winter and storms have brought some troublesome times for the seals. Thankfully the Cornish Sea Sanctuary has been on hand to pick them up along the Cornish coast. Go along to the Sanctuary now to see these beautiful creatures as they get some rehabilitation before being released back to the sea.

Lambing season

Visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan to see the new born fluffy lambs. As they pop up all across Cornwall, you could get the chance to see a birth.

Spring walks

There are many coastal walks in Cornwall and around the Fowey area, with stunning views of beaches, the sea and glimpses of the local wildlife.

Food events

Cornwall is famous for its food and the World Pasty Championships on March 5 starts of Cornwall's food events of the spring. There is the Cornish Arms Beer and Mussel Festival on March 18 - 20 and the Oyster Gathering and Cornish Produce Festival on March 25 - 27. If you want to indulge in some delicious gourmet dishes look no further than one of the best Fowey restaurants at The Cormorant Hotel.
