This year’s Christmas Glow at Wisley, open now until 2 January 2017, promises to be bigger, brighter and better than ever!

Come and see even more gigantic illuminated ‘blooms’ - designed by Jigantics - as they light up the winter landscape and spark the imagination. A special trail is available from the main entrance. There will be plenty of beautiful natural Christmas decorations to enjoy as you stroll the garden, too.  

We recommend arriving at the garden in the afternoon from around 1-2pm, to enjoy a fantastic range of Christmas shopping, see the garden as dusk falls and enjoy our Winter Walk. 

We'll also be lighting up some of Wisley’s magnificent trees, including the Liquidambar on Seven Acres West Lawn, giant redwoods around the Pinetum edge and the Scots pine by the Loggia. Expect magical effects as the light plays on the bark and traces their outlines against the dark sky. Can you find all the trees that we have specially lit up?
