Autumn Activities in CornwallPublished: 2021-09-08 / Author: Merchant House
Autumn is a great time to explore Cornwall, and Merchant House Hotel is within easy reach of some of the most popular towns, villages and beaches. Cornwall hosts several major events and this year Stage one of The Cycle Tour Of Britain went right past our front door (check out our facebook page to see the video).
Below are a few more ideas to inspire a visit - but don't wait too long, we are booking up quickly ... booking direct will always get you the best rates.
The Hall for Cornwall has undergone extensive refurbishment and the auditorium opens under its new name 'The Cornwall Playhouse' this autumn with Fisherman's Friends The Musical, running from 13th to 30th October. What better place to see this fabulous Cornish tale?
If you're planning a festive treat, Cinderella starts in December, and there are some big names coming to perform in Cornwall in 2022.

Our new planting has begun, and includes yuccas and grasses, which flourish in the Cornish micro-climate. We are lucky enough to be within easy reach of some of Cornwall's most stunning gardens including Trelissick, Trebah, and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Most gardens have plant centres, so why not take something home as a reminder of your visit?

National Maritime Museum
Situated on the harbour in nearby Falmouth, the maritime museum is well worth a visit. Its mission is to promote an understanding of boats and their place in people's lives, and over five floors (including one below sea level), it presents the story of the sea, boats and the maritime history of Cornwall.
