Christmas Lights

To make your experience memorable, bundle up for a festive stroll along pathways festooned with traditional garlands, view the illumination of thousands of lights, and enjoy the Twelve Days of Christmas displays throughout, then stop in the Coffee Shop to warm up with a hot chocolate and gingerbread by the fire.

The Japanese and Mediterranean Gardens are closed during Christmas.

Dining

Before or after your walk, enjoy The Gardens’ renowned fare, in the Dining Room Restaurant. Festive dining is an experience to remember in Jennie Butchart’s former residence, or opt for more casual fare in the Blue Poppy Restaurant.
