Visit to Blenheim Palace's Christmas Trail

Wednesday 6th December 2017 (booking closes Wednesday 22nd November)
Friends: £25; Guests: £30

Our evening visit to Blenheim Palace will follow the Trail along winding paths, beside tranquil waters and through extraordinary parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown.

The scented Fire Garden offers a circular carpet of dancing flames, adorned with lanterns, set against the backdrop of glittering ancient woodland. The lake will be aglow with brightly-lit boats and dancing fountain jets, and the woodland across the Great Lake will spring to life in time to much-loved Christmas music.
