Cancellation of Christmas at Blenheim Palace, 6 January - 10 January 2021

Following the latest announcement of a new lockdown in England, we’re extremely disappointed to announce that we’re closing Christmas at Blenheim Palace from Wednesday 6 January until the end of the run. There have been many challenges during the season and we’re pleased that, whilst guidance allowed, we were able to offer some the opportunity to enjoy the trail safely.

Ticket holders have been contacted directly about their options. We are unable to answer individual queries at this time, thank you for your understanding and patience.

We’re truly sorry to not have the opportunity to welcome you on the trail. We do hope that you have a happy and peaceful 2021.

The magical, after-dark, illuminated trail

Surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas. You'll find new moments to share with friends and family with brand new bright lights for winter nights.

From the Heart of the Stars scattering shards of light across the lawn to a scented fire garden that adorns the Water Terrace, walk towards dynamic, colour-changing neon tunnels, lakeside reflections and onto a mesmerising place where, beneath the branches of a sprawling tree, softly glows the fairy-fire known as Will-o-the-Wisps.

Rest assured to those who have been before, the tunnel of light will twinkle and the fabulous hillside sea of light returns. Walk under larger-than-life arches of light into a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics as you wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.

Passionate about food, our talented street food vendors bring a delicious twist to the treats on offer. Have yourself a merry little Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine and hot chocolate* with someone special.

*Separate charges apply.
