Christmas at Dunham Massey: the magical, after-dark, illuminated trail…

Dunham Massey’s biggest and brightest Christmas event returns for a second year with plenty more surprises. Experience the garden and historic buildings all aglow for a magical outdoor, after-dark experience.

From 30 November to 30 December 2018

Wander beneath tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour and dripping with shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles. New for 2018, the Dunham Massey winter trail is a place where fairy tale meets fantasy. Glowing trees rise high into the night sky and lead you on a path towards hundreds of colour-changing globes. There’ll be hidden surprises too – watch out for bubbles on the bridge before you stroll through playful ribbons of colour-changing lights and stop at the scented fire garden to take in the sights and smells.

As you walk through a tunnel of light covered with over 100,000 pea-lights, the mesmerising voices of singing trees can be heard in the distance. Take a moment at the water fountain finale to enjoy the water jets and beams of light as they dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics.

Keep an eye out for a glimpse of Father Christmas* along the way and complete your stroll under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate** whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Gather round to toast marshmallows** at one of the fire pits, take a ride on the vintage carousel** and enjoy other traditional fare before finishing your Christmas shopping in the shop.

*please note that this is not a meet and greet with Father Christmas.

**additional charges apply.
