Now that the clocks have gone back, and with Christmas fast approaching, we’re looking forward to enjoying our favourite Cornish Christmas lights displays.


Located near Hayle in West Cornwall, Angarrack has had a Christmas lights display since 1986. There are a variety of lights – many of which are animated – and a sequence of the Twelve Days of Christmas. The main lights are designed and made in the village and are unique to Angarrack. Don’t miss the switch on at 7pm on Saturday 3 December.



Mousehole Harbour’s Christmas lights display is one of the most popular and well known in the county. The display began in 1963, by a Mousehole-based artist. A string of coloured bulbs was put along both quays to illuminate the village for Christmas. This year the lights will be switched on at 7pm on 17 December and will be on each evening between 5pm and 11pm until 7 January 2017.


Eden Project

Promising to light up Christmas with a stunning sound and vision spectacular is the Eden Festival of Light and Sound – running from 25 November to 30 December. Step out on to the viewing platform and see the lasers pierce through the darkness – creating a canopy of light, whilst painting the biomes and plant displays with festive colours.



A beautiful display of lights will be switched on in Padstow on the first Sunday in advent (Sunday 27 November) at 6pm. To make sure everyone gets in the Christmas spirit there will also be a carol service. The lights are set to be a real Christmas treat, with lights in and around the harbour.
