What to expect from The Bay of Lights Trail

The Bay of Lights promises to ignite the night sky once again, transforming The English Riviera into a dazzling celebration of Christmas.

The 1.5-mile free and accessible trail starts at Abbey Park before going over the curly bridge to wind its way along the seafront promenade and end at the harbourside.

This year, the Bay of Lights will also include Paignton and Brixham, who are hosting 12-metre-high pixel mappable Christmas Trees, providing a spectacular digital sound and light show.

The trail and the trees both run daily from 4:30pm, with sound elements until 9:30pm and lighting displays until 11pm.
