 The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail at Belton House, Lincolnshire,

Following last year's success, surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after dark trail lights up for 2020. You'll find new moments to share with friends and family - brand new bright lights for winter nights.

Winter Lights Trail brought to you at Belton House by Raymond Gubbay Ltd (Sony Music) in partnership with the National Trust.

Latest visiting update: 31 Dec – 3 Jan - Christmas at Belton will remain open for those in Tier 4.

We're working closely with our partners to bring the magic of our winter light trail to you safely, in line with government guidance. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is of utmost importance to us.

For those who wish to attend, Belton House is open for the Light Trail in the evening, further to the updated government guidance published on the 23 December. We have been advised by the Local Councils, Environmental Health and Government to ensure that we are working within the new Light Trail Tier 4 guidelines (published on 23 Dec).  Find out more here.

We ask that all visitors who live within Tiers 1,2, or 3 adhere to the new restrictions and therefore not to visit Belton House at this time.  All ticket holders are being contacted. Thank you for your patience during this time.
