Discover the magic of Christmas at Belton

Explore a spectacular new Christmas light trail at Belton, Lincolnshire from 28 November –
30 December 2019.

A magical mile-long trail, featuring incredible light installations and enchanting visitors with classical Christmas tunes, will transform the gardens at the National Trust’s Belton House.

Brought to you by events promoter Raymond Gubbay Limited, a division of Sony Music, and creative producer Culture Creative, this Christmas the tree-tops at Belton will glisten and the gardens will shimmer and sparkle for the very first time with this mesmerizing new illuminated trail.

It’s definitely the most wonderful time of the year to wander beneath historic tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour and dripping with shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles.

As you walk through a towering Tunnel of Light festooned with over 100,000 pea-lights, the melodious voices of the Singing Trees can be heard in the distance. Step into the Laser Garden where dancing lines of light playfully bounce across the branches.

There are hidden surprises too – pause alongside the moonpool reflections and glimpse the sculptural Fire Garden as it flickers and crackles. The formal gardens spring to life with topiary trees lavishly draped in pea-lights that flicker in time to much-loved festive classics.

For the young ones in all of us there are traditional Victorian fairground rides* in the Estate Yard and don’t forget to catch a glimpse of Father Christmas and his elves.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate. Gather around the fire-pit with family and friends to toast marshmallows*. Why not end the evening browsing Belton’s well-stocked National Trust gift shop and pick up some treats for the journey home?
