Details

Our magical Illuminated Garden Trail is back and is bigger and better than before!

An unmissable event to start off the festive season, see the grounds adorned with thousands of lights transforming the gardens into an enchanted winter wonderland.

Start the trail off by crossing Helmingham Hall’s famous drawbridge (pulled up every night since 1510) and warming up with a complimentary mulled wine within the courtyard seeped in over 500 years of historical charm. Continue through the gardens absorbing the magical sights and sounds, gather around the fire pits to toast marshmallows for s’mores and end the evening browsing the Stables Shops where you may be able to find some early Christmas gifts!

Illuminated Garden Trail - 23rd November - 8th December, 4:30pm - 8:00pm (timed entry every 30 minutes with the last entry at 7:00pm)
The Coach House Tearooms will be serving a range of hot and cold festive treats.

All well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
