Christmas at Dunham Massey

For the third year running, the formal gardens and deer park of Dunham Massey will be magically transformed and illuminated by lights!

It’s very much now a family tradition of ours, I’ve shared some of my own photos from previous years at the end of this post.

This magical winter trail even has some 2019 new installations and if you’ve been before you’ll be pleased to see some of the favourites returning!

Enter a grand avenue replanted with gigantic flowers with the house brought to life by festive projections. Walk through the dynamic, glowing Vortex Tunnels and stroll towards the mesmerising reflections made by Fire on Water. Watch out as lights seem to tumble from the undergrowth and light up trees like fizzing fireworks and take time to pause at the delicate carpet of colour-changing blooms.


Spot the larger-than-life glittering deer and walk through the towering Tunnel of Light twinkling with thousands of pea-lights. Take in the Field of Light and discover the woodland world festooned with seasonal cheer.

Complete your magical walk with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate which is available to buy throughout your experience. There’s nothing better than gathering around the fire-pit with your family and friends to toast marshmallows!

There’s even some rides and a Victorian carousel for the younger ones (charges apply) and don’t forget to look out for Father Christmas and some of his helpers!

There is still some tickets available but you need to be quick. Find out more information about prices and to book see here.

National Trust members receive free parking and you must select this when booking. There is a FAQ section on the National Trust website which can be found here.


Have a look at some of our family photos from previous years when we have visited. This year we have been invited to their press opening event of Christmas at Dunham and we’re so excited.
