Christmas at Blenheim

‘Christmas at Blenheim’ is set to return to the Oxfordshire estate from this November.

Between 24th November and 1st January 2018, visitors to Blenheim Palace in Woodstock will be able to enjoy festive celebrations including the transformation of the Formal Gardens and Capability Brown Parkland into a winter wonderland Christmas trail.

The new Christmas trail

Visitors can discover a new magical trail this festive season which promises to showcase the landscape from a different point of view. 

The winding paths will take guests alongside tranquil waters and historical parkland taking in new attractions as part of the bigger and better trail. 

Groups visiting will see the Formal Gardens and Capability Brown Parkland on the historic estate illuminated as part of the after-dark attraction. 

Visitors will also be greeted with the sights and sounds of Christmas as they wander beneath tree canopies drenched in seasonal colours dripping with shards of light, as well as giant snowflakes and baubles.

For younger guests, Santa’s Christmas Workshop can be found by following a twinkling tunnel and walking between a glowing waterfall.

Also, flaming plumes will flicker as a Cascade of Fire springs to life in tune with much-loved Christmas classics. As visitors walk back towards the Palace, they will wander among Singing Trees rising high into the sky and onto Mistletoe Moment festooned by a canopy of over 100,000 pea-lights.

Complete your hour-long winter stroll with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate on offer and you can even toast your own marshmallows as the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air.
