A Cornish Christmas – Nadelik Lowen

It’s Christmaaassss! At Helsbury, we love Christmas, and in Cornwall, where we say “Nadelik Lowen” there are so many fun things to do at this time of year. Visit Cornwall released a list of ways to spend your Cornish Christmas; here’s a summary.

Christmas Markets

Christmas markets are a great way to get you in the Christmas spirit. From mulled wine to handcrafted gifts, it will make you feel like the festive season has truly begun. In Truro you will find many a Christmas market all the way up to Christmas Eve, so if you feel as though you have missed the markets, you may still be in luck!

Christmas Lights

Christmas lights never fail to make me feel joyful. Whether it’s a street who has illuminated it’s houses for the holiday or a show in the Eden Project’s Rainforest Biome, the lights always bring a smile to my face. If you want a light show you will never forget, visit the Mousehole or Angarrack lights in West Cornwall. We are off to the night garden at Heligan, which is a wonderful walk through the woods lit up with magical sculptures.

Festive Shows and Pantos

What is Christmas without a trip to see a show! In Cornwall we take this to another level. In St. Ives and Falmouth, you may be able to catch the Miracle Theatre’s production of Sleeping Beauty or Treasure Island at the newly refurbished Hall for Cornwall. Or visit Bodmin Jail for a tour of the old building and its gruesome Christmas links. Maybe you could visit Penzance and see The Montol festival on the 21st of December. Whatever you chose to visit, you will have an amazing day!

Whatever you chose to do, we hope you have a great day and wish you a merry Cornish Christmas or Nadelik Lowen!

See you in 2023!
