This is a delightful experience and well worth the £12 entry. The light show in the trees takes about an hour to get round. Entry is on a limited time entry so it is not too crowded. The trees are beautiful in daylight but even more so lit up at night. After walking round there are stalls selling food and... More

Overall I think the experience is great. My husband and I went last year and we found it amazing so we decided to go back this year with our son and granddaughter. It definitely has a 'wow' factor and the staggered timings are a great idea. However, last year we went earlier whereas this year we went for a trail... More

My husband and I visited Westonbirt for their Enchanted Christmas evening. You have to book your tickets on line in advance and choose your desired arrival time from a choice of 5-6,6-7 or 7-8. We chose the 6 o'clock slot and arrived an hour beforehand in order to visit the shop and have some refreshment before walking the trail. There... More

This was my first visit to the Enchanted Christmas event and our party (3 adults, one 4 year old) enjoyed it immensely. The trail was very well laid out with plenty of illuminations, including different types at intervals that helped keep my son interested. It was obviously very busy but the facilities available were sufficient to cope, e.g. number of... More

We really enjoyed our walk around here in October, taking in the autumnal views. There's lots of paths but the seasonal path is good to follow. There's a nice gift shop located there and there's also a cafe although we didn't visit this so can't comment in that regard.

We had a fabulous, wonderful evening!, upon arriving, parking and gaining entrance to the Enchanted Illuminations, the first thing that struck me was how very well organised everything was, 10/10 to the organisers! The Staggered entrances clearly worked well! Everything was clearly laid out, and there was a fairy on stilts to meet & greet children, & there appeared to... More

This is the second year we have visited the Enchanted evening. Lessons have most definitely been learned from last years problems. The timed entry worked beautifully and meant the route was not crowded. We were able to spend time at the interactive areas with the children without feeling as though we had to push our way in. Children queued and... More

It is many years since I last visited and was very impressed on how sensitively it has been upgraded. It was a beautiful autumn day (29 Nov) . We had limited time so we made straight for the new to us the Treetop Walk. A very satisfactory start. It is lovely being able to see so many trees labelled. In... More

Well expectations high but extremely underwhelmed by the whole thing. Not many special effects and no surprises re Santana or elfs popping out plus no real shopping available- over priced
