Padstow is a haven for foodies at any time of year, but when Christmas is approaching and our minds turn to food it steps things up another delicious notch. Padstow is at its most special during the festive season, and the Padstow Christmas Festival is the perfect way to get into the spirit of things.
The festival runs during the first week of December, and is always packed with cheery events, demonstrations from celebrity chefs and entertainment for the whole family. Highlights include Christmas lights, Santa’s grotto, fireworks and a Christmas market offering local produce and seasonal surprises. If you’re a fan of the Rick Stein, keep an eye out as he often carries out a book signing during the festivities too.
