December is the start of winter in Newquay.

Snow should be unlikely as the salt in the sea air minimises the chances, but there are only around 4 hours of sun to be expected per day.

It isn't all bad, though; the colder weather is perfect for gearing up towards Christmas and it means you have an excuse to knock back some warm mulled wine and roasted chestnuts, perfect for your return from a long walk in the chilled December air.

At the start of the month Newquay Zoo becomes adorned with lights of all colours as well as Christmas decorations, marking the Festival of Christmas Lights, which is a must-see for anyone in the area at that time of year.

New Year's Eve is celebrated at various venues across Newquay, so you can take your pick of places to have a memorable night bringing in the New Year.

Included in this roster of places is the opportunity for fancy dress at multiple venues, because New Year offers the perfect time to act silly and reflect on the highs and lows of the year ending.

Hotel Sunnyside is a great option for younger tourists. The budget accommodation is situated in the heart of Newquay and is an excellent base for anyone that wants to take advantage of the local nightlife. It's also ideal for stag and hen dos.
