Summer fun at Tintagel Old Post Office

We've got the school holidays sorted at Tintagel Old Post Office. Our exciting summer events programme features a different children's activity every Wednesday. Family trails, garden games and dressing up (weather permitting) are available every day.

This summer, set up a snail race, hunt for bugs, make a home for a wild animal or create wild art all as part of 50 Things to do before you're 11 and 3/4. Don't forget, you can pick up your free 50 Things scrapbook here to start collecting stickers!
