    30 November - 30 December

    The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail It’s the most wonderful time of the year as the treetops glisten and the garden and deer park of Dunham Massey shimmer and sparkle. You’ll be greeted by our larger-than-life glittering deer, along with the sights and sounds of Christmas. Wander beneath unique 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. Watch out for Bubbles on the Bridge before you stroll through playful ribbons of colour-changing lights and stop at the scented Fire Garden for a moment of reflection. Glowing trees rise high into the night sky and sparkling hedgerows lead you on a path towards hundreds of illuminated colour-changing globes. There’ll be plenty of hidden surprises too.

    As you walk through a Tunnel of Light festooned by a canopy of 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. Amid all the festive fun make sure you keep your eyes peeled for Father Christmas along the way. Complete your stroll under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate while the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Gather to toast your own marshmallows* at one of the fire pits, ride the vintage Carousel* in the Courtyard and enjoy other traditional fare before finishing your Christmas shopping in Dunham Massey’s shop. *Separate charges apply
