Illuminated trail at Belton House near Grantham will open on November 25 to herald Christmas




Belton House is getting ready for Christmas and will welcome back its glittering Illuminated Trail this year, from November 25 to January 2.

Visitors will be surrounded by over a million twinkling lights, colourful trees and illuminated installations, all choreographed to a soundtrack of much-loved seasonal music, transforming Belton’s majestic gardens into a winter wonderland.

Among the impressive sights will be picture perfect colour changing spheres, trees interwoven with neon light, an immersive triangular tunnel filled with colour changing hues, giant water lilies, singing trees and a tunnel of hearts leading to larger-than-life mistletoe, so there’s plenty of selfie moments along the way.

The trail highlights for 2021 will be:

  • Carol of the Bells – lighting up the night sky with colour changing spheres of light
  • Triangulate Tunnel – walk through this triangular tunnel and immerse yourself in a sea of moving lights, colours and patterns that dance in time to the music
  • Neon Tree – stand back and marvel at its branches interwoven with multicoloured neon lights

Independent street food vendors will bring a twist to tasty treats on offer. Visitors can complete their walk under the stars with toasted marshmallows, a spiced winter warmer or hot chocolate.

The trail is designed for visitors of all ages and is accessible to all.
