The Blenheim Palace winter trail will be brighter than ever before with lasers, projections, and thousands of pea-lights. From the delicate and twinkling to the grand and spectacular, the Formal Gardens will light up once again for a festive journey of exploration and wonder. Wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour, shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and glistening baubles. Highlights include a new Field of Light, scented Fire Garden, Canopy of Light, and the mesmerising voices of the Singing Trees.
Escape the bustle of the high street and soak up the festive atmosphere of our Christmas market set against the magnificent backdrop of Blenheim Palace. Within wooden chalets, the market will be filled with a variety of hand-picked irresistible gifts, unique works by a range of designers and tempting treats for foodies. With ceramics, textiles, homewares, leather goods, jewellery, toys, stationery, bags, hats and so much more, it is the perfect place to begin your Christmas shopping.
