Win a family ticket for a magical Christmas trail
We’re offering you the chance to win a ticket for two adults and two children to one of these five glittering Christmas trails, plus a hamper worth £250
CHRISTMAS AT KEW
Now in its fifth year, Christmas at Kew – the original Christmas trail – returns with a magical after-dark experience boasting more than a million twinkling lights. There’s something for everyone as you 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 a few hidden surprises along the way, too – watch out for the woodland walk along the Path of Bubbles, and find giant baubles where you least expect them, along with clusters of trees wrapped in ribbons of light. For the younger ones, the playful atmosphere of White Peaks welcomes everyone with a Victorian carousel*, helter skelter* and other family rides*.
OPEN WEDNESDAY 22 NOVEMBER - MONDAY 1 JANUARY
CHRISTMAS AT BLENHEIM
The new 2017 Christmas at Blenheim trail is a winter wonderland inspired by the landscape. Walk beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour. Follow the path to 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.
OPEN FRIDAY 24 NOVEMBER - MONDAY 1 JANUARY
CHRISTMAS AT DUNHAM MASSEY
The formal gardens of Dunham Massey are transformed into a winter wonderland for the first time. Father Christmas sees you on your way through twinkling tunnels and a swaying lawn of colour reflected in the water. Discover the Singing Trees rising high into the night sky and the festive finale, as brightly coloured water jets dance in time to Christmas classics.
OPEN FRIDAY 1 - SUNDAY 24 DECEMBER
CHRISTMAS AT THE 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 into 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.
OPEN WEDNESDAY 29 NOVEMBER - MONDAY 1 JANUARY
CHRISTMAS AT THE BOTANICS
There’s something for everyone at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh this Christmas, with a mile-long illuminated trail that winds its way through the world-famous garden. Wander beneath the tree canopies bathed in seasonal colour. Follow the path through the enchanting Crystal Lawn and stop for a moment to change the colour of the trees yourself. Stroll along a fairy-tale avenue of giant glowing structures rising high into the night sky, and pause at the magnificent Beech Hedge illuminated by flashes of sparkling light. And don’t forget to look out for Santa and his elves along the way!
OPEN FRIDAY 24 NOVEMBER - SATURDAY 30 DECEMBER
