Cheshire’s Finest Christmas Lights Trail

As dusk falls our Christmas Lights Trail comes to life and becomes the most dazzling winter illuminations event in Cheshire and beyond. Bolesworth is bathed in seasonal colour, our beautiful grounds lit with thousands of stunning lights and effects, projections and interactive installations creating an unforgettable seasonal experience for children and grown-ups alike.

The most important part of the festive countdown for all girls and boys – the chance to meet Santa (we know him!). It’s their opportunity to tell jolly old Father Christmas what they want in their stockings on December 25, receive a gift and take a photo to mark the magical meeting.

Each family or group can look forward to a jolly personal experience meeting Santa in his grotto. Visits must be booked in advance and you’ll be allocated a time slot. Please choose which age category your child is, so we can be sure that Santa choose an appropriate gift.

Please Note: Santa’s Grotto tickets must be obtained for each child in a group wishing to see Santa. Accompanying adults don’t need to obtain tickets for Santa.

Get your skates on and glide into Christmas on our 240sqm real Ice Rink. Open on selected dates from 24 November to 31 December, with 30 minute bookable slots..

Slots are pre bookable with limited numbers available. Skating aids are available.

If after all that walking you’re feeling a little sleighed, the perfect place to recharge is Rudolph’s Rest! As well as the chance to enjoy some festive refreshments halfway through the lights trail, you can meet Santa’s reindeer as they get ready for the big day.

If the lights trail wasn’t dazzling enough, experience a mixture of amazing fairground rides and attractions for all ages. Ho, ho, ho if you want to go faster!
