THERE is still time to experience the magic of Christmas with Stourhead’s special illuminated trail.

Christmas at Stourhead, which opened last month, is open until January 2, apart from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, providing plenty of opportunity to visit either during the festive period or in the New Year.

Matthew Findlay, Head of UK Trails for Raymond Gubbay, said: “The beautifully crafted installations are interwoven with the landscape of the garden to create a magical, memorable experience for all ages.”

There are neon strings stretched between towering trees, a walk through a tunnel of hearts and onto larger-than-life mistletoe, a flotilla of festive, brightly coloured boats bobbing on the lake, and giant colour changing flora.

The Christmas Cathedral on the trail is made up of 24m of lights and there are 150 candles lighting up the Fire Garden as well as more than 100 3D printed birds which feature in Bird in the Hand.

The special trail also features 12 illuminated Pitaya trees from France and more than 200 Origami-style boats feature in Voyage.

Visitors to the National Trust site can also sample a variety of food and drink.

There are a range of independent street food vendors serving up festive treats.

Christmas at Stourhead is brought to you by Sony Music in partnership with the National Trust. The trail is created by Culture Creative.

It is designed for visitors of all ages and is accessible to all to enjoy.
