Kingston Lacy illuminated trail

Deep in the heart of the Dorset countryside, the gardens of the National Trust Kingston Lacy form the perfect setting for this new, after-dark experience.

The formal gardens at Kingston Lacy were created by Henrietta Bankes. Stroll around the Japanese Garden, complete with an authentic tea house or take a sheltered walk through the woodland.

As twilight falls the magic begins. Expect the unexpected as you glimpse fairies in the Fernery, fiery fish and woodland wildlife sculpted in willow all within an enchanting landscape filled with wonder.

Lit by lanterns, wander between flickering flames and beside stately majestic trees from one amazing space to another.

Within this fiery interpretation of stars and spheres, illuminated flora and fantasy, there are moments of reflection and playful discovery set to a soundscape that will inspire and intrigue.

The hour-long discovery trail has been specially designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy. The Great Outdoors made magical.
