The Perfect Christmas
The after-dark illuminated trail sparkling in The Great Outdoors
The Palace’s picture-perfect grounds are always the place to be during Christmas, with over a million lights, lasers, and music filling the air with festive excitement across the Palace, it’s the most lovely time of the year.
Enjoy some quality time with family and friends as you explore glistening light tunnels, shimmering lakeside reflections, and jewel-like coloured trees. Pause at the mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden for a moment of introspection, then gaze up at the larger-than-life illuminations, and don’t forget to get a peek of Father Christmas along the way.
The independent street food sellers provide a delectable touch to the delectable foods on offer. Enjoy a merry, jolly Christmas with spiced wines or hot chocolate enjoyed with someone special after your walk beneath the stars.
