What to see and do around Cornwall this Christmas

Cornwall is a great place to visit during the festive season. Packed full of things to do and see, from twinkling light displays to Christmas markets, there’s sure to be something for everyone to enjoy. Here are some of our favourites that we think you’ll love.

Festive light displays

Our favourite light display is of course the one you’ll find in Crantock village – just moments away from us. However, if you’re looking to make an evening of it, there are some fantastic ones a little further away.

Mousehole’s famous display, which lights up the streets, harbour walls and even the water is truly magical. The switch on takes place at 6.30pm on Saturday 14th December and the lights will be on every evening (except Thursday 19th) until the 5th January. We recommend also visiting Angarrack’s stunning display – which you’ll find on the way to (or back from) Mousehole. There you’ll find the twelve days of Christmas and even some sneaky crocodiles!

There are many other towns and villages which put a huge amount of effort into their Christmas lights. Just a few of the ones we’d suggest visiting include Carnon Downs, Truro, Falmouth and Leedstown.

Christmas markets

You won’t be short of choice when it comes to Christmas shopping in Cornwall.

Head to one of the many events taking place, including the Padstow Christmas Festival, Healeys Christmas Market, Country House Christmas at Trevince, Truro Christmas Market and many more. Bursting with amazing food, drink, gifts and more, there’s no better way to get into the festive spirit.

Festival of Christmas

Head to the Eden Project this Christmas and be entertained by a joyful chorus of some of Cornwall’s finest musicians. A cast of 21 will be playing festive songs in the Mediterranean Biome on the evenings that they’re open late. On your way there, walk through the spectacular Avenue of Lights to the Biomes, where giant willow lanterns, modelled on our planet’s most precious creatures, light up the night. Then take a spin on the ice rink or enjoy a glass of mulled wine.

Santa by steam

All aboard! Take a trip with the railway elves to visit Santa’s grotto. Arrive at Bodmin General Station for mince pies, festive drinks and carols on the platform, before enjoying an hour-long return journey on a steam train. There’s plenty of time to visit Santa, with gifts for each child.

Watch a Christmas panto

 You won’t want to miss Aladdin at the Lane Theatre in Newquay! The story may be familiar but expect a modern twist. Running between 12th – 14th December, early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
