Tunnel of Lights 2020


Due to the new tier Cornwall has been placed in, the Tunnel of Lights will be closed from 31st December 2020.

If you have booked tickets from this date onwards we will be issuing full refunds.

From Narnia to the North Pole, through a frozen forest and a neon wood, travel through magical realms in this illumination spectacular.

The Shipwreck Treasure Museum’s highly popular Tunnel of Lights Christmas event in Charlestown is returning in a socially-distanced format for 2020 from 3rd December

Building on the huge success of creating the UK’s longest underground tunnel of festive lights in 2019, this year promises to be even bigger, bolder and brighter.  More than five kilometres of cable and over 50,000 lights are being used to transform the subterranean passageways into a festive wonderland.

Want to see more photos and a sneak peek video of the Tunnel of Lights Christmas event in Charlestown? Head over to our Facebook page.

While the experience will be bigger than ever, visitor capacity is being significantly reduced. This is to ensure everyone can safely socially-distance.

The Tunnel of Lights – Key Information 2020

In line with Government guidance, unfortunately, Santa Claus will not be making an appearance in the Tunnels this year… however he has assured us he’ll still be delivering presents to houses on Christmas Eve!

To ensure Santa receives your letter this year, why not deliver it to his door directly?
Write your letter to Santa before you visit our Tunnel of Lights and leave it safely in his post box when you reach his door at the North Pole!
