This Stunning Tunnel Of Festive Lights Just Opened Its Doors For The First Time In The UK

The UK's longest festive tunnel of lights has opened in Cornwall - and it looks absolutely mesmerising.

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.

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."
