Our magical garden illuminations are back every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening until 6 January 2018! This year, the trail has been extended to take in new areas of the garden, and we've added additional dates too.

Be enchanted as you follow the trail around the trees, shrubs and sculptures, all illuminated by high-tech, dynamic colour-changing lights.

This year the trail takes in the Formal Gardens and Stream Field, then back down the Long Borders, Hot Garden and of course our Winter Garden.

On some evenings, we'll be creating an even more delightful atmosphere with food and craft fairs, and on two weekends in December Entertainingly Different will perform The Twelve Days of Christmas complete with songs, stories, poems and dancing.
