It may only be September, but it’s never too early to start planning for Christmas.

Tickets for the hugely popular festive light trail at Stourhead have already gone live due to public demand, and the event is expected to be another incredible sell-out this year.

Set amid the National Trust’s world-famous garden in Wiltshire, the spectacular family-friendly and seasonal walk will take place from Friday, 26 November until Sunday 2 January.

Get ready for one-mile of magical and enchanting illuminations like you’ve never seen before.

The all-new 2021 trail will feature jaw-dropping attractions such as the ‘Neon tree’ – with branches interwoven in a web of bright lights, and ‘Voyage’ – a rainbow-coloured installation of small boats floating along the water, casting their reflections onto the night sky.

There’s also the enchanting woodland of the ‘Neon Strings’ to look out for, with bouncing lines of colour that catch the eye under the moonlight.

Information about the National Trust

Stourhead is part of the National Trust conservation charity.

Established in 1895, the trust was first set up to mark the importance of the UK’s national heritage and open spaces, so that they remain preserved for members of the public to enjoy.

More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything the charity does.

Entirely independent of Government, the National Trust looks after more than 250,000 hectares of countryside, 780 miles of coastline and hundreds of special places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

More than 26 million people visit National Trust heritage sites each year, and together with roughly 5.2 million members and over 61,000 volunteers, the charity is supported in its mission to care for these spaces so that they are maintained for the future.
