Christmas at Dunham Massey 2020

Christmas at Dunham Massey 2020

It’s definitely the most wonderful time of the year when the after-dark, illuminated trail lights up for its fourth year in 2020 and winds magically through the formal gardens and deer park of Dunham Massey.

From 20 November to 30 December 2020

Now in its fourth year, surround yourself with sparkle 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.

Enter beside giant glittering deer into a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics. Wander beneath stunning tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. Immerse yourself within bouncing lines of light and discover giant luminescent sculptures rising high into the night sky.

Stroll beside colour-changing lakeside reflections and under trees dripping with silvery shards of light, baubles and stars. Huge snowflakes create an aerial kaleidoscope over the Gardens and the tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour. This year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the crystal and fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine or hot chocolate*. Don’t forget to watch out for Father Christmas along the way.
