Where to watch fireworks in Cornwall

Get your oos and your aahhs ready this November for a night of spectacular skies in Cornwall. Fireworks are always a treat, but when their sparks and explosions are reflected in the ocean, they're particularly memorable.

Here are just five of the best places where you can enjoy watching the annual firework displays in Cornwall, whether you're looking for a coastal backdrop or a more traditional rural setting.

Malpas, Truro

Watch the annual fireworks display from a barge on the Truro River, just outside the city in the little village of Malpas. After the display over the water, why not head into the city and dine out in one of the fantastic restaurants or bars?

St Ives

One of Cornwall's best beaches takes on a new look every November as the bright colours of Bonfire Night illuminate the night sky. And it's not just the sky that gets a facelift - the sea also looks like you've never seen it before as it reflects the brilliant colours of the fireworks.

Mitchell Village

Just down the road from us here at Callestock is the little village of Mitchell. Every year the 16th Century Inn puts on a show with fireworks, sparklers, a huge bonfire and warming hot food.

Newquay Harbour

It has the beaches, the souvenirs, the restaurants and pubs - but in the Winter Newquay also has the fireworks. Hosted in the picturesque harbour, against a canvas of black sky and sea, the annual fireworks display is well worth a visit.

St Mawes

This little village is more off the beaten track, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Roseland Peninsula. Climb aboard the spectator boat in Falmouth and relax under the stars as you travel sedately down the Fal River, before dropping anchor in St Mawes Harbour to watch the fireworks from the water.
