December 1 – January 6

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 sing along to the Twelve Days of Christmas displays throughout. 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.


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.
