Christmas at Gibside

Family running through a tunnel of twinkling lights

Light up the dark winter nights with a festive after-hours experience at Gibside and be amazed by a new, Christmas themed illuminated trail this December.

Admire the splendour of the Georgian landscape garden as you wander through twinkling lights.

From 26 November 2021 to 2 January 2022

Join with family and friends to immerse yourself in shimmering effects.

Look forward to some together time as you discover sparkling tunnels of light, walk under giant baubles and beneath trees drenched in jewel-like colour. For a moment of reflection pause at mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden, gaze at the specially chosen illuminations and don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with a *spiced winter warmer, *hot chocolate or *toasted marshmallows shared with someone special.
