Christmas comes to Beaulieu!

Experience the new magical, after-dark, illuminated trail through the grounds and gardens of the Beaulieu visitor attraction this Christmas.

On selected dates between 23 November - 24 December, the tree-tops will glisten as the gardens and buildings shimmer with seasonal sparkle. There’s something for everyone as a one mile illuminated path winds its way through the grounds in a magical after dark experience. Greeted by the sights and sounds of Christmas, wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour.

A festive outdoor walk for all the family...

Icicle Walk

Along the Icicle Walk, larger-than-life gleaming shards guide you towards the Meadow of Light where thousands of fibre optic heads sway in unison. There are hidden surprises too – watch out for frosty snowflakes, shimmering stars and gigantic baubles where you least expect them.

Singing Trees

As you wander beneath playful ribbons of colour-changing lights, the mesmerising voices of Singing Trees can be heard in the distance. Rising high into the night sky this festive finale is a cheerful Christmas blast of colour and light.
