A cold, crisp night. A mug of hot chocolate. The twinkle of festive lights. What could be more merry at Christmas?

Pack a flask of hot chocolate or mulled wine and you've got the perfect evening.
We all know and love the famous Mousehole Lights, but our team have rounded up their best places in Cornwall to see Christmas lights to give you some new ideas...
Stroll through the walled garden and orchard under the warm glow of strings of fairy lights. Along the route there will be illuminated structures created by local schools and artists. The cafe will be serving hot snacks and drinks and the lovely gift shop will be open for your Christmas shopping.
Head to Charlestown to not only spot the Poldark filming locations, but also for the magical Tunnel of Lights! Over 220 metres of historic underground tunnels are covered in nearly 5 miles of twinkling lights - an amazing sight! This year there is also a giant snow globe to discover.
Less busy than some of the more famous lights in Cornwall, but one not to be missed! The pretty harbour village is lit up and you'll even discover some of the boats decked out in lights!
This is a great spot if you'd like to see a similar display to Mousehole with floating lights in the harbour, but without the crazy crowds that the Mousehole Lights gather! Tick off your Christmas list as you wander through the lovely shops and wait for the lights to come on.
Since 1986 the small village of Angarrack near Hayle have been putting on a spectacular display. They have all been lovingly designed and installed by the villagers and represent the 12 days of Christmas. Follow the circular walk around the village and you'll see them in the right order.
