Christmas at Stourhead 2020

The garden illuminated at Christmas

Following last year’s success, surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after-dark trail lights up for 2020. You’ll find new moments to share with family and friends and brand new bright lights for winter nights.

From 27 November - 3 January

Enter a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics, as you wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.

Discover giant luminescent sculptures rising high into the night sky and trees wrapped in light on your way to Crocus Lawn, where a carpet of larger than life flora glows gently in the moonlight. Framed by glittering trees, stroll along Heart Walk and beside reflections dancing playfully on the lake.

There are giant baubles and snowflakes where you least expect them and clusters of trees wrapped in ever changing ribbons of colour. The tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour and this year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the scented 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.
