Christmas at Belton

The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail at Belton House, Lincolnshire, in partnership with Raymond Gubbay Ltd

For the very first time at Belton the tree-tops will glisten and the gardens will shimmer and sparkle. It’s definitely the most wonderful time of the year to wander beneath historic tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour and dripping with shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles. 

From 28 November to 30 December 2019

Don't miss out

This winter Belton will be hosting the region's biggest and brightest outdoor Christmas trail around the gardens at night. Complete with traditional Victorian fairground rides and tasty seasonal treats - this enchanting event promises a great night out for all the family to enjoy.

The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail

As you walk through a towering Tunnel of Light festooned with over 100,000 pea-lights, the mesmerising voices of the Singing Trees can be heard in the distance. Step into the Laser Garden where dancing lines of light playfully bounce across the branches.  Then stroll towards a carpet of glowing flowers and reed-like lights that reach high into the night sky.

There are hidden surprises too – pause alongside the moonpool reflections and glimpse the sculptural Fire Garden as it flickers and crackles. The formal gardens spring to life with topiary trees lavishly draped in pea-lights that twinkle in time to much-loved festive classics.
