Blenheim Palace Illuminated Light Trail

17 November 2023 – 2 January 2024

What to expect

The towering Tunnel of Light will once again twinkle with over 100,000 lights, while the scented Fire Garden gently glows alight. Breathtaking, colourful displays will dance across the historic façade of the Palace to Christmas classics.

Warm yourself up while you walk under the stars with a mulled cider, mulled wine or 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.

The fun doesn’t stop there; there’s a Victorian carousel, Helter-skelter and other family rides for the whole family to enjoy. Lastly, don’t forget to look out for Father Christmas and his elves along the trail.
