Christmas Lights
With the historic castle as your backdrop and bathed in seasonal colour, Bolesworth Castle becomes a winter wonderland illuminated by more that 40,000 lights around our 1.2 mile accessible Christmas Lights Trail.

The dazzling route winds through Bolesworth’s magnificent grounds, into our enchanted forest and past our shimmering lake… all drenched in vibrant festive hues. We know little (and some bigger) legs may find the entire trail tiring, so we’ve planned a number of accessible paths that let you plan a route to suit you.

There’s also plenty of interactive activities along the route, plus surprises along the way… you may even have the chance to meet our friendly reindeer as they get ready for the big day.

Then join Heathcote&Co in the Alpine Lodge for a festive feast
