This Stunning Tunnel Of Festive Lights Just Opened Its Doors For The First Time In The UK
The 110-metre-long tunnel is brightly decorated with an astounding 40,000 multi-colour lights, while four kilometres of cabling was used to keep it all in place.
The attraction, which is believed to be the longest tube of its kind in Europe, opened last week to the public ready for everyone to enjoy it.
The tunnel is located in the idyllic fishing town of Charlestown, Cornwall, which has been made famous by BBC's Poldark, and is the centre piece of the local Shipwreck Treasure Museum's festive efforts.
Director of the Shipwreck Treasure Museum, Alex Smitt, said of the amusement: "We're really excited to launch what we believe to be Europe's longest underground festive tunnel of lights with over one hundred meters of illuminated passageways.
"It has been a big task lighting up the tunnels ready for our launch, but we're finally ready for Santa Claus' arrival."
Speaking about the radiant attraction, a spokesman for the Shipwreck Treasure Museum added that the glowing spectacle has attracted all ages.

And while it's glorious to look at, it also is home to some very special residents - Santa and his most important elf, Alabaster Snowball, who leads visitors to Father Christmas' underground grotto.
The spokesperson said: "Children and their families will be able to explore the enchantingly lit tunnels before being greeted by Alabaster Snowball, a very important elf indeed.
"This employee of Santa's North Pole workshop is entrusted with the administration of the naughty and nice list.
"You'll be sure to be nice to this elf on your visit to the Shipwreck Treasure Museum this December.
"Once elves have guided visitors through the glowing passageways, each child will have the chance to meet Santa Claus in his underground grotto."
The Christmas extravaganza at Shipwreck Treasure Museum will continue daily from Saturday until Monday, 23rd December with time slots between 11am and 6.30pm. Book your tickets here.
