The Easter holidays are an eagerly awaited time in Cornwall as we welcome the spring season and it generally means that the days are longer, the weather is warmer, the spring flowers are in bloom so the wonderful Great Gardens of Cornwall are looking spectacular and it's a great time to visit.
There are many eggscellent easter egg hunts to enjoy too!

The dates for the Easter weekend are different each year because Easter Day is always the first Sunday after the first Full Moon on or after March 21st (this date being the Spring equinox, ie equal amounts of daytime and night-time). Easter can be as early as March 22nd and as late as April 25th.
