Enchanted Gardens

Something special is happening at our historic places this winter.

As the night draws in, our gardens will be filled with light, colour and sound as our season of Enchanted events begins.

Choose an event below to book your tickets today.

These unique events will lead you along an enchanting garden trail into a magical wonderland as our historic places are bathed in dramatic illumination. Strings of lanterns laced through the boughs of trees, fairy lights twinkling behind leaves and special surprises will transport you into a dream-like version of the past.

And the experience doesn’t end when the trail does. Emerging into the scene of a traditional fairground, you’ll be carried back to times gone by. There will be plenty to enjoy besides – from mince pies and mulled wine, to Christmas shopping at our heritage-inspired stalls.
