Illuminated Trees at Christmas at Belton House.

The tree tops at Belton will glisten and the gardens will shimmer and sparkle with the new trail, with shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles.

People can walk through a towering Tunnel of Light with over 100,000 pea-lights. They will be able to hear the melodious voices of the Singing Trees in the distance. Dancing lines of light will playfully bounce across the branches in the Laser Garden.

There will also be hidden surprises – pause alongside the moonpool reflections and glimpse the sculptural Fire Garden as it flickers and crackles.

There will also be topiary trees draped in pea-lights, flickering in time to much-loved festive classics.

There will also be Victorian fairground rides in the Estate Yard for an additional cost, as well as the chance to catch a glimpse of Father Christmas and his elves.

Spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate will be available, and visitors can gather round the fire pit to toast marshmallows (additional charges apply).
