Start your day by escaping the bustle of the high street and join us for our Christmas Market. Next, take a journey into the New Alice in the Palace experience, exploring the topsy-turvy world of Alice in Wonderland, then be awed by our illuminated light trail.
Alice in the Palace:
The magic of Alice in Wonderland is exquisitely captured in an enchanting experience. The beautiful surrounds of the Palace will be transformed into a whimsical topsy-turvy wonderland. Step between the pages of a larger than life book, go down the rabbit-hole and along corridors filled with hidden surprises.
From mirrored hallways, illusions, and Mad Hatter’s tea party to a world of make-believe, this festive indoor trail will leave you with a grin like the Cheshire cat.
Illuminated Light Trail:
Don't miss our ever popular Illuminated Light Trail. The formal gardens will be lit up in festive colour, brighter than ever before with lasers, projections and thousands of tea-lights. The towering Tunnel of Light will once again twinkle with over 100,000 pea-lights, while the woodland Laser Garden and the scented Fire Garden all return. The Water Terrace light finale dances across the historic façade to much-loved Christmas classics.
Complete your walk under the stars with mulled cider, mulled wine or a hot chocolate*. Gather around the fire-pit with family and friends to toast marshmallows* and end the evening browsing the well-stocked gift shop in the East Courtyard.
For the young ones in all of us there’s a Victorian carousel*, Helter-skelter* and other family rides* and don’t forget to look out for Father Christmas and his elves along the way.
