The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail
Surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after-dark trail lights up for 2020. You'll find moments to share with friends and family with brand new bright lights for winter nights.
Enter a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics and wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Discover giant luminescent candles rising high into the night sky on your way towards a meadow of light shimmering as it gently sways. There are giant baubles, glowing flowers and snowflakes where you least expect them and clusters of trees wrapped in ever-changing ribbons of colour.
The tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour and this year why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the water-side scented fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine or hot chocolate* and someone special. Don't forget to watch out for Father Christmas along the way.
