The much-loved Christmas experience returns to Blenheim Palace for 2023, inviting visitors to enjoy the enchanting trails inside the Palace and in the world-renowned gardens.
Follow the outdoor trail to discover heart-shaped arches glittering in the moonlight, glowing tunnels filled with stars and an eight-metre sphere filled with more than 20,000 moving LEDs – just some of the new displays to see this year.
Visitors will also see the return of the ever-popular dancing reflections in the colourful Cascades and magical Lakeside walk. A multitude of twinkling lights and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun, including a glimpse of Father Christmas.
Sample some festive food in the East Courtyard as hand-picked street vendors bring an indulgent twist to the tempting treats on offer.
Inside the Palace, marvel at the story of Sleeping Beauty which has been reimagined with a contemporary twist.
Besides the illuminated trails, the Great Court will host the artisan Christmas Market in the run-up to the big day.
November 17 (Friday) - January 1 (Monday)
