Visitors enjoying a light show

The after-dark illuminated trail through the garden at Stourhead returns for its fourth year in 2022. Book now to discover this world-famous landscape in a new light this festive season.

Now firmly positioned as part of the UK’s winter calendar, over a million twinkling lights and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun at Stourhead. Look forward to some time together with friends and family as you discover sparkling tunnels of light and dancing lakeside reflections, then walk under giant baubles and beneath glistening trees drenched in jewel-like colour. For a moment of reflection pause at mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden, gaze at the larger-than-life illuminations and, to make a moment to remember, don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

Our crew of independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist to tempting treats on offer. Complete your walk under the stars with a perfectly festive *spiced winter warmer, *hot chocolate or *toasted marshmallows shared with someone special.
