• Event details


    For the very first time, the picture perfect gardens at Blenheim Palace open this Christmas for an after dark festive trail along unique winding paths, beside tranquil water and through extraordinary Parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown. Walk beneath the stars and into the scented Fire Garden, a circular carpet of dancing flames, adorned with lanterns. In the distance glimpse glittering ancient tree canopies glowing in Christmas colour that stretch high into the night-sky.

    Discover Christmas trees that sing, a swaying lawn of fibre optic colour and sparkling hedgerows. Gaze at waterside reflections as brightly-lit boats bob along filled with snowflakes and presents festooned with seasonal cheer. In the distance, fountain jets dance and the dense woodland across the Great Lake Vista springs to life in time to much-loved Christmas music. As you emerge from the pea-lit twinkling arbour, catch sight of The Boat House, magically transformed as Santa’s secret Oxfordshire home.

    Why not complete your winter stroll with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Gather to toast your own marshmallows, ride the vintage carousel* and enjoy Blenheim Palace’s well stocked gift shops, tasty treats and other traditional fare.
