Christmas Trail at Wimpole Estate
Friday November 24, 2023–Sunday December 31, 2023£14.50 – £64.00
A dazzling array of new installations will transform Sony Music’s magical illuminated trail Christmas at Wimpole when it returns to the National Trust’s Wimpole Estate for a fourth year between Friday, 24 November and Sunday, 31 December.
The spectacular route will have many new features for 2023, providing after-dark festive fun for all the family at the beautiful Cambridgeshire property, which was bequeathed to the National Trust by Rudyard Kipling’s daughter in the 1970s.
Among a host of other new installations for 2023 is Crystal Garden, by Output Arts, comprising clusters of glowing shards which sparkle and shimmer to create an enchanting display.
Studio Vertigo are displaying Nova and The Ghosts, the latter of which is built from natural recycled polypropylene, with structural elements created using folding techniques found in origami. Pyrite Creative’s Light as a Feather is a series of steel feathers painted to glow in the dark, twisting and turning gracefully as though lifted by a sudden gust of wind.
There’ll also be a chance to glimpse Father Christmas along the trail, enabling everlasting memories to be made with loved ones, family and friends.
Open from 4.30pm, last entry 8pm (7pm on Dec 24, 26, 30, 31)
Closed 27, 28, 29 November and 4, 5, 25 December
