The Illuminated Trail will make a welcome return to Blenheim Palace this Christmas, with a bright and magical winter walk like no other.

Visitors will embark on a winter adventure inspired by the landscape itself, dramatically illuminated with stunning lights, lasers and projections, and wander under magical tree canopies draped in seasonal colour and silvery shards of lights, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles.

The Heart of the Stars installation will scatter ethereal light across the lawn, while a scented fire garden will adorn the Water Terrace. Visitors can explore dynamic, colour-changing neon tunnels, lakeside reflections and a mesmerising space where fairy-fire known as Will-o-the-Wisps will glow softly under the branches of a sprawling tree.

Visitors can walk under larger-than-life arches of light into a world festooned with seasonal cheer, enhanced by a specially-selected soundtrack of festive classics. Street food vendors will be on site to bring a delicious twist to seasonal treats.

The Illuminated Trail at Blenheim Palace will be open on select dates between 20 November 2020 and 3 January 2021 – advance bookings are advised. For pricing and ticket information please visit
