Lights Display

While the flowers sleep, we dress The Gardens with boughs of greenery—and lights galore! The Gardens come to life with a colourful display of lights, including scenes depicting The Twelve Days of Christmas. Wander the pathways to discover each scene while you sing along to the classic Christmas carol.

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.
