CHRISTMAS AT KEW
Now in its fifth year, Christmas at Kew - the original Christmas trail - returns with a 2017 winter trail boasting over one million twinkling lights. Step into an enchanting world festooned with seasonal cheer. Marvel at the Palm House Pond as it springs to life with brightly coloured criss-crossing laser beams, jumping jets of light that dance in time to much loved Christmas classics. There are hidden surprises too, watch out for the woodland walk along the Path of Bubbles, giant baubles where you least expect to see them. For the younger ones, the playful atmosphere of White Peaks will welcome you with a Victorian carousel*, helter skelter* and other family rides*.
PREVIEW NIGHT: TUESDAY 21 NOVEMBER / ARRIVAL TIME:6.00pm
Following on from the success of Christmas at Kew, we are delighted to announce a series of trails across the country for everyone to enjoy!
CHRISTMAS AT BLENHEIM
The new 2017 Christmas at Blenheim trail is a winter wonderland, inspired by the landscape itself. Walk beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour. Follow the path down towards Santa’s Christmas Workshop, through the twinkling tunnel and between the fibre optic waterfall that flows gently into the Great Lake, where hundreds of brightly coloured boats ebb and flow. In the distance, flaming plumes flicker as the mesmerising Cascade of Fire springs to life. Complete your treat under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate.
OPENING NIGHT: FRIDAY 24 NOVEMBER / ARRIVAL TIME:5.30pm
CHRISTMAS AT DUNHAM MASSEY
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when for the very first time, the formal gardens of Dunham Massey are transformed by a one mile sparkling path winding through the historic woodland with plenty of surprises along the way. Father Christmas sees you on your way through twinkling tunnels and a swaying lawn of colour reflected in the water. As you duck between sparkling hedgerows, discover the Singing Trees rising high into the night sky. Pause at the festive finale as brightly coloured water jets dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics. Afterwards warm up with your favourite winter tipple, or enjoy some toasted marshmallows around one of the fire pits, whilst the aroma of roasted chestnuts fills the air
OPENING NIGHT: FRIDAY 1 DECEMBER / ARRIVAL TIME:5.30pm
CHRISTMAS AT BIRMINGHAM BOTANICAL GARDENS
Birmingham’s newest festive attraction follows a jewel-coloured trail. Be welcomed by glittering trees dripping with giant crystals, gaze at the carol-singing cedar coppice rising high in to the night sky and pause for a moment of reflection at the flickering Fire Garden. Just ahead, wander through the twinkling Pealight Tunnel before stopping for a kiss at Mistletoe Moment. For the young ones, and the young at heart, ride the steam-boat swing* or inside a giant bauble at the fabulous larger than life Christmas Tree*.
OPENING NIGHT WEDNESDAY 29 NOVEMBER / ARRIVAL TIME:5.30pm
