Following a spectacular first event, our Formal Gardens will light up once again for an unforgettable after-dark festive trail of lights.
Follow the trail along winding paths, tranquil waters, and extraordinary Parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown.
The lake will be aglow with brightly-lit boats and dancing fountain jets, and the woodland across the Great Lake will spring to life in time to much-loved Christmas music.
Other highlights include the fairy-lit arbour and the lakeside boathouse which will become a temporary home for Santa Claus. Unfortunately, Santa won't be able to meet and greet visitors on the trail, but be sure to give him a wave as you pass on by!
Visitors will be able to complete their winter stroll with spiced cider, mulled wine or a hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Toast your own marshmallows, ride the vintage carousel* and enjoy our well stocked gift shop, tasty treats, and other traditional fare.
The hour-long discovery trail has been specially designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy. Christmas at Blenheim - the Great Outdoors made magical.
