Things to do in Mousehole, Cornwall

Mousehole (pronounced 'Mouzle') the name is thought to derive from a smuggler's cave south of the village. The village was once a major pilchard landing port and retains considerable character, with colour washed houses surrounding the harbour, draped with nets.

The RSPB have a bird sanctuary south of the village.

On the 23rd December Mousehole celebrates Tom Bawcock's Eve, a procession takes place with fish lanterns and Star-Gazey Pies.
