November events in Cornwall

From ice skating to antique fairs, there's more to November in Cornwall than fireworks and Christmas markets. Here is my round up of my favourite events to attend this month.

From fireworks to Christmas markets, November in Cornwall brings a whole host of festive activities to keep you warm this winter. I love the excitement of fireworks and the build up to Christmas, especially after all the fun of Halloween too. There's something so special about this time of year. 


Whilst on holiday in Cornwall, find a pub with a fire to cosy up with a loved one while watching the rain or brave the outdoors and go storm watching for a completely new experience of the county's coasts. Of course, there are plenty of walks along the coast path or down to the beaches to enjoy come rain or shine. You just need a good coat and some sturdy boots. Cornwall really is a great place to make the most of the outdoors at any time of the year.


These are some of my favourite November events to visit instead of (or as well as) fireworks in Cornwall:

Throughout November:

Ice skating at Eden Project

Captain  Bligh: Myth, Man, Mutiny exhibition at the National Maritime Museum


11th November: Launceston Market in the Square

13th to 19th November: Looe Literary Festival

18th November: Cornish Winter Fair in Wadebridge

22nd November: Truro City of Lights

24th to 26th November: Fowey Christmas Market
