The spectacular Enchanted Christmas event will return to Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, managed by the Forestry Commission, this November and December.
Alongside exploring this year’s new illuminated route through the trees, visitors can buy gifts and decorations in the Forest Shop and enjoy warming festive fare.
Families will also be able to enjoy a new winter wonderland in the education centre. Amongst a snowy setting, children can meet Westonbirt’s green Father Christmas and make festive crafts with the arboretum’s learning team.
For over ten years Westonbirt, The National Arboretum has thrilled winter visitors with the Enchanted Christmas illuminated trail.
The one mile trail highlights the striking structures of Westonbirt’s trees in winter. A new route through the trees is created each year to take in different specimens, paths and vistas in the tree collection.
The illuminated trail is accessible for wheelchairs and mobility scooters, both of which can be booked for free in advance by calling 01666 881218.
Westonbirt’s Enchanted Christmas takes place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from 25 November to 18 December, from 5 to 8.30pm, with the last entry at 7.15pm.
Admission is adults £9, concessions £8 and children £5. Discounted entry is available for pre-booked groups of over 10 people and Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum members receive half price entry on Fridays.
Advance tickets can be booked online at www.forestry.gov.uk/westonbirt-christmas.
