Enchanted Walmer Castle

About

Make the most of the winter evenings with an enchanted experience of light, colour and sound as the award-winning gardens of Walmer Castle are transformed into an illuminated world.

Delight in a serene and enchanting trail featuring tunnels and pathways of twinkling light and see the grounds burst to life in remarkable, unexpected ways. Wind your way through the Queen Mother's Garden and Woodland Walk toward the new historic Glen, spotting dancing fairies flitting among the leaves, and meeting wise old talking trees along the way.

After enjoying the trail, try your luck at fairground rides and games, or pose for a family picture in front of the strikingly lit Broadwalk. There will be plenty to enjoy besides - from mince pies, mulled wine and toasting marshmallows to Christmas shopping and heritage inspired gifts.

So grab the winter woollies, your family and friends and revel in the most enchanting event of the year. It's set to be a popular evening, so remember to book early to avoid missing out.

HOW TO BOOK
