Christmas in the gardens of Forde Abbey on the Somerset and Dorset border is a magical time of year, and this December you can join in the spirit of the season with an illuminated trail around the gardens.
After dark, the long borders will be lit, illuminating the champion trees and casting a shine over Forde Abbey.
Inside, there will be carols, mulled wine and seasonal treats to sample.
Father Christmas will also be on site on Saturday, 15th and Sunday, 16th December with a sackful of gifts. The gardens will be illuminated from Thursday, 13th December through to Thursday, 20th December daily from 3.30pm to 6.30pm. Normal admission prices apply.
