Illuminated Light Trail

An unmissable Christmas event

The towering Tunnel of Light will once again twinkle with over 100,000 pea-lights, while the woodland Laser Garden and the scented Fire Garden all return. The Water Terrace light finale dances across the historic façade to much-loved Christmas classics.

Complete your walk under the stars with mulled cider, mulled wine or a hot chocolate*. Gather around the fire-pit with family and friends to toast marshmallows* and end the evening browsing the well-stocked gift shop in the East Courtyard.

For the young ones in all of us there’s a Victorian carousel*, Helter-skelter* and other family rides* and don’t forget to look out for Father Christmas and his elves along the way.
