This winter, experience the enchanting effects of fire, light and lanterns throughout the garden at Nymans.

Set against a gloriously romantic backdrop, Nymans, West Sussex, has a garden made for garden lover’s. It’s a place where creativity has flourished and quirkiness is celebrated. So it’s no surprise that the cherished grounds form the perfect setting for this new, after-dark illuminated trail, where you wander between flickering flames and majestic trees – from one amazing space to another.

Ignite is brought to you at Nymans by Raymond Gubbay Ltd (Sony Music) in partnership with the National Trust.

As twilight falls, the magic begins 

Expect the unexpected - glimpse fleeting fairies, spot fiery fish and dragons ablaze. Spot woodland wildlife sculpted in willow with fairies dancing in the trees as you stroll through the walled garden into an enchanting landscape filled with wonder.

Lit by lanterns, wander between flickering flames and majestic trees - from one amazing space to another.

Within this fiery interpretation of stars and spheres, illuminated flora and fantasy, there are moments of reflection and playful discovery set to a soundscape that will inspire and intrigue.

The hour-long discovery trail has been specially designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy. The great outdoors made magical.
