During an evening at Eltham Palace, you can expect exuberant, interactive colour displays brightening up the walls of the Great Hall, and magical installations ready to delight visitors of all ages along the way. Discover the maze of light, get lost along ‘mirror ball alley’, or watch on as the Palace’s ancient moat comes alive. One thing’s for sure: you won’t be short of Instagram opportunities here!

Besides the light trail, Eltham Palace will also be home to various fairground rides, street food stalls, marshmallow roasting pits, and, of course, mulled wine stands to keep you warm along the way. The English Heritage shop will also be open with Christmas cards, decorations, foodie treats, and gifts on offer if you want to hunt for the perfect Christmas present to take home.


As you can see in the trailer, it will be a dazzling affair, so wrap up warm this winter and book yourself a ticket to Enchanted Eltham Palace!
