The brand new Christmas Lights Trail which opens at Dunham Massey on Friday, December 1st is proving so popular organisers have already had to add an extra date over the festive period.
Visitors to the Cheshire National Trust property will now also be able to book tickets for ‘Christmas at Dunham Massey’ on December 7th.
The new day has been added due to high demand for places on the timed trails which take visitors on a magical, illuminated, after-dark journey through the grounds of the Georgian stately home.
Running until December 30th, the trail features over 100,000 individual lights which will transform the outdoor space into a glowing winter wonderland.
The ancient deer park will be awash with colour with visitors being able to explore over 22 individual scenes along an hour-long trail with interactive elements and immersive experiences.
From a Meadow of Light featuring a sea of fibre optics and a Fire Garden aglow with hundreds of flaming installations, to a giant mistletoe sculpture, visitors will be awed by the sheer scale of illuminations.
The lawn will be adorned with oversized baubles and Dunham Massey’s renowned copses, will be dressed with vibrantly coloured lights as well as dramatic wintery whites to emphasise the beauty of the silver birches.
The great lake will feature floating light installations and reflections from the architectural lights will transform the House’s exterior.
As well as illuminations, the landscape will be filled with seasonal sounds including Singing Trees and festive musical performances as well as delicious food and drink to keep spirits high.
The trail has been specially designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
