There’s magic around every corner on Westonbirt’s brand new illuminated trail!

Father Christmas’ elves have made their way to the arboretum to decorate for Christmas. But they’re running slightly behind schedule… will the trail be ready on time?  This year we invite you to go behind the scenes of Enchanted Christmas to witness the wonder, hilarity and general commotion that comes with playful Elves creating Westonbirt’s spectacular illuminated trail.  You may even find yourself joining in to help!  

With new light displays to discover and mischievous elves to meet, this is Enchanted Christmas as you’ve never seen it before…
