Top 10 Things To Do On A Rainy Day in Cornwall
Don't let the weather forecast get you down! There's absolutely loads of activities to do at Flambards - rain or shine! But if it's going to be wet then here's our top ten things to do!
1. Victorian Village - With its evocative atmosphere of bustling streets and alleyways, hidden nooks and crannies, the Victorian Village is an incredible all round sensory experience with authentic sights, smells and sounds - thanks to the real cobblestones! Wander through the life-size village; home to 50 sets and scenes. Gaze through shop windows, step inside the local pub, visit the greengrocer’s, ironmonger’s, butcher’s, shoemaker’s and even the apothecary – everything from a schoolroom and blacksmith’s to the fire station are authentically recreated with thousands of genuine artefacts. PLUS, don't forget to explore the Village with the new mystery trail! Go on the hunt for clues in the sets and scenes to uncover who solved the crime!
2. Britain in the Blitz - The Britain in the Blitz display is a life-size re-creation of daily life during WWII. Hear the air raid sirens and feel the floor shake as another bomb hits its target. Peep into a wartime kitchen, the local pub and an evocative railway platform scene showing children being evacuated.
3. Chemist Time Capsule - Discover the world of William White, a pharmacist who lived and worked in Somerset. When he died in 1909, the shop was boarded up by his son who wasn’t qualified to dispense drugs, the shop remained untouched for more than 80 years. The walls are lined with medicine bottles, apothecary jars, quartz carboys, demijohns, pill dispensers and mortars and pestles. This whole shop was carefully installed to Flambards as it was – lock, stock and cobweb!
