First time my husband, son, his girlfriend and myself have visited the Christmas light trail at Blenheim. There’s a park and ride available close by, which was really easy. Upon arrival, there was a carousel for the children and young at heart. There were also a great number of cabins with a huge variety of christmassy offerings, from crafts to gin, churros to cheese. Something for all ages in fact. Before the walk around the trail, we had a warming coffee and delicious cakes in the large marquee which also provided plenty of seating. The main event was booked for 7.20 so we eagerly made our way to the start. This was an amazing experience which took us 90 mins to walk slowly around. The lights were beautiful, trees lit up along the path, leading you forward to each new offering. I won’t give anything away, but it was worth every penny. A really great way to begin the Christmas season.

    Hi, a quick guide as requested. Firstly, you have to book on the Blenheim Palace web site. You can pick your time, depending on what is available. You attend the entrance gate for the walk a few mins before your designated time. The trail is marked all the way, and there are plenty of ‘ santa’s helpers’ along the way in case you need any assistance. I use a walking stick, and took one alternative route which was flat, but there were also wheel chair users enjoying the route. It is great fun for all the family. Enjoy.x

    This sounds great fun. Can you explain how it works please. Is there a set trail round the grounds to follow? This may be the idiots question but does everyone set off together or can you start off when you want. What time does it close (would hate to get locked in!!)

    What is the trail like for walking - is it disabled friendly and is there enough light to see by?
