On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays leading up to Christmas, this fantastic festive event captures the minds of people young and old. The Westonbirt Arboretum in the Cotswold has been a fan favourite for many years, and it’s not hard to figure out why.
The festive event involves placing thousands upon thousands of festive lights on towering trees, helping create an everlasting, majestic beauty that also illuminates a mile-long walk. The walk sees many festive and Christmas related surprises too, with the inclusion of Santa and his elves and even a visit or two from Jack Frost.
Children will love the festive cheer that is sprinkled; or thrown heavily, into this stunning event and families can happily walk the trail and take in the natural beauty that surrounds them. Thanks to the long duration of the enchanted Christmas, it can be a lot easier to fit into a busy festive schedule too. So if you’re battling shopping trips, work, family time and down-time, consider a day or two to get away from the stress and take in the ambience of the trees, festive celebrations and family fun which is on offer at the Westonbirt Arboretum.
