Runaway Rudolph...

Christmas at Dunham Massey: the magical, after-dark, illuminated trail... 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when the trees and formal gardens of Dunham Massey are all aglow for a magical after-dark experience. In partnership with Raymond Gubbay Limited, Dunham Massey will be transformed into a winter wonderland this December– a one mile sparkling path winding through the historic woodland with plenty of surprises along the way.
