PAGE UNDER DEVELOPMENT – 11 August 2020
Later opening for Winter Light
This year we’re open 12noon-7pm, so as twilight falls you’ll see the gardens sparkle even more brightly with spectacular light displays bringing our extraordinary landscape to life.
The Winter Light trail will transform the Pleasure Grounds with dramatic colour and playful installations. Stroll under the stars beneath magically illuminated tree canopies transformed by moving light. See the Manor’s façade bathed in light set to music.
From dusk, follow the Winter Light trail to see trees and shrubs are lit up in a rainbow of colours. Look out for the valley of flickering flames creating a sea of fire, and dozens of suspended orbs in a walk-through musical light show.
Walk down Miss Alice’s Drive, from the Woodland Café to the Stables to see a display of lanterns and stars decorated by local schoolchildren on a theme of hope, and our annual schools lightbox competition.
As the sun goes down, watch the spectacle of the Manor’s façade illuminated with dancing lights set to sequenced music.
Step inside giant twinkling LED baubles and capture a special festive moment. The perfect photo opportunity to share and remember.
