At EKO we like to escape at the weekend and spend time doing things we love and exploring new places.
We have compiled a list of fun weekend ideas to do with friends and family.
There is nothing better than a riding through the breeze on a warm sunny day. Our favourite bike ride in Cornwall is from Penzance to Marazion along the cycle trail. Its always great to find a trail that involves a lovely cafe stop for an ice cream and somewhere that takes in the great views.

We take inspiration from nature for our collections, and a great place to find colour inspiration is from gardens. Trebah is a lovely gardens in Cornwall just outside Falmouth on the South coast. Trebah comes alive with a colourful array of 100-year-old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias; in summer, the giant gunnera is a must see too.

Celebrate long light evenings with a feel good picnic with family and friends. We like to take a picnic down to our favourite beach Cot Valley in the evening after a long day in the studio.

Find your nearest lido or sheltered cove, to enjoy a wild swim. Our favourite space in Cornwall for outdoor swimming is the new refurbished Lido in the iconic town of Penzance. We also like to visit the London Lido in Brockwell Park, Brixton, to create calm after meetings in Central London.
