    Special Event

Come and enjoy Rosemoor's Glow (every Thursday, Friday and Saturday only) for its third year following a brand-new route that has now been extended to the lake for the first time. The lights, starting from the Visitor Centre, illuminate part of the Formal Garden, which leads to the Foliage Garden highlighting the unknown soldier and poppy display, then into the Stream Field and down to the lake area.

We also have many of our other amazing sculptures lit to create added features within the display. With remarkable, hi-tech colour-changing lights illuminating the garden in the depths of winter, it will make an amazing show to delight visitors.

Rosemoor’s award-winning Garden Kitchen Restaurant will be open late with a special family-friendly hot menu; additionally there will be hot drinks and snacks served in the Lecture Hall or enjoy an alfresco hot drink by the Shepherds Hut in the stream field. The Gift Shop is the place to go for exquisite and unusual Christmas gifts which will stay open until 8pm. Last food service at 7pm. Last entry to the Garden 7pm.

Due to popular demand, it's highly advisable to book your table for an evening meal to avoid disappointment. Book your evening meal in the Garden Kitchen Restaurant online.

This event takes place outside in the garden so please dress accordingly. The event will go ahead whatever the weather unless it is very windy. If in doubt about the weather please call 01805 626810 to check before leaving home. The illuminated trail follows hard surfaced paths that are all accessable with wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

Add to the experience by booking a short break in our holiday apartments.
