Now its December and I cannot contain my excitement any longer I have to tell you about the Christmas lights spectacular of Cornwall. Down in Mousehole, near Penzance the harbour is lit up with some pretty radical Christmas lights, about 7,000 in fact and the small village attracts over 30,000 visitors over the festive season. Mousehole is called Mousehole for a reason and its best to park in the car park on the approach to the village rather than driving into the centre of the village to be met by wondering pedestrians looking at the lights and wondering how to turn their cameras on (We’ve all been there!). Whilst you are in Mousehole you may want to check out the Ship Inn for a pint and some food or just have a browse around the quaint streets, galleries and gift shops. Don’t forget to take some change to give to the nice men and women in their high-vis jackets shaking a bucket, if it wasn’t for them there wouldn’t be any lights to look at!
