Wake up to the beach on Christmas Day, take a bracing walk along the shoreline, cosy up by a log fire and indulge in some local, seasonal produce. You may even get to see the Cornish beaches covered in snow; a perfect Cornish Christmas picture.
In the run up to Christmas day head to one of the county’s festive highlights:
The Eden Project and ice rink
One of Cornwall’s most visited and iconic attractions, the Eden Project has a wonderful programme of events throughout the festive season from the extremely popular ice rink to lantern parades. Visiting the Eden Project at Christmas is a must.
Mousehole, a picturesque village in South West Cornwall, puts on what’s argued to be the best Christmas lights display anywhere in the country. For two weeks the fishing village is transformed into a winter wonderland with lights all around the harbour and in the hills above.
Take a dip
It’s traditional to take a Christmas Day dip in Cornwall, but we suggest taking a dip regardless of what day it is. Take a deep breath and jump in the cold winter water and then head home for a well-deserved hot chocolate.
Head to Truro Cathedral for their Christmas service, where real live stock feature in the best nativity you’ll ever see.
There are a host of Christmas markets to visit throughout Cornwall during the Christmas season all showcasing the delicious local produce Cornwall has to offer. Pick up some last minute gifts and indulge in some fine food and drink.
