You're trying to get into the Christmas spirit - but it's the same every year - the local late night shopping in town is the same as ever, with herds of people pushing and shoving through the high street, battling the driving winds and horizontal rain.
The parking costs almost as much as the Christmas shopping but what can you do?
GET AWAY FOR CHRISTMAS AND SAVE
What if instead you took a short break to Cornwall and filled your Christmas stockings with smiles, memories and happiness?

We've found some of the best events, festive markets and fun activities going on in Cornwall this Christmas that will give you the opportunity to make this Christmas the best ever.
Cooking demonstrations, mulled wine, spectacular fireworks, craft workshops, artisan gifts and more fresh festive food than you can shake a cinnamon stick at. And of course Santa's grotto. An absolute must see Christmas market.
(If you make it to the market, don't forget to book your table at Pucelli's Italian restaurant and tuck into classic warming dishes while enjoying views of the harbour and admiring your purchases).
One that the little ones will remember forever. Hop aboard the traditional steam engine at Bodmin and Wenford Railway for an hour-long ride through the countryside. Meet Santa and the elves in his magical grotto carriage.
