New for 2018 – Christmas Comes Alive at Bedgebury


An illuminated winter wonderland for all the family

Discover a fantastic new Christmas light trail in the heart of Kent at the Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest from 30 November – 30 December 2018.

For the very first time, the National Pinetum will be transformed into a winter wonderland with a magical after-dark illuminated trail. This unique opportunity to see Bedgebury in a whole new light is brought to you by leading events producers Raymond Gubbay.

Inspired by the landscape itself, visitors will explore a festive adventure in a world of trees, dramatically drenched with stunning lights.

The family-friendly festive trail features dancing fountains and shimmering reflections that cast light into hidden places. Highlights include a spectacular towering Tunnel of Light festooned by over 100,000 pea-lights as well as a scented Fire Garden, a Mistletoe Moment and much more.

There are hidden surprises too – watch out for frosty snowflakes, shimmering stars and gigantic baubles where you least expect them. At the Boardwalk, the giant redwoods are surrounded by a carpet of glowing colour-changing globes. The iconic trees, rising high into the night sky, are brightly illuminated by twinkling lights that dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics.

Visitors can complete their stroll under the stars with mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Toast marshmallows at one of the fire pits, ride the vintage Carousel*, and spy Father Christmas and his elf along the way.
