Amusements and Activities St Ives Cornwall

Amusements & Activities In St Ives & West Cornwall

Harbour Amusement Arcade

The Arcade in St Ives is a proper good old fashioned type of arcade, with 2p machines, a shooting gallery and loads of arcade game. It is a firm favourite with our children.

Drop them in there for an hour or so with a load of 2ps and sit with a coffee on one of the benches outside. A great way to spend the afternoon.

The arcade is on Wharf Road, right on the harbour next to The Balcony and Jus' Desserts ice cream shop.

Porthminster Mini Golf

On the green behind Porthminster Beach is an mini golf course. It has 18 holes and clubs and golf balls are provided. They have children’s clubs too.

Call 01736 795352 to book up.

St Ives Escape Rooms

There is an Escape Room in St Ives! You get 60 minutes on the clock so gather your team, find clues and solve the puzzles. Can you escape in time?

It isn't recommend for under 8 years old, but older kids and adults will love it!

Snooker, Pool & Billiards

There are several places to play pool and snooker in St Ives.

The Harbour Pool & Billiards club is on Wharf Road and has a good selection of full sized snooker and pool tables to play on. They also have darts and other games, plus sky sports. You can buy temporary membership for £5 a week, or yearly membership for £25 a year. I don't think under 18's are allowed in on the temporary membership, but I think they are for the yearly one - you would have to check!

The Queens Hotel on the High St, The Golden Lion and The Three Ferrets all have pool tables.

Coast 2 Coast Go Karting

There is a super outdoor go karting track right by the A30 flyover near Hayle and St Erth. You will have probably seen it driving to St Ives. Booking is essential and you need to be over 1.27m tall and over 8 years old. Wear full shoes as flip flops, crocs and sandals aren't allowed.

Paradise Park is actually in Hayle, but it is worth the 15 minute drive. It has a great wildlife park full of some really fascinating birds, red pandas, otters and farm animals. There are outdoor play parks, a little train, and a very good indoor soft play with a cafe.
