Syon Park – an enchanted, winter, nature trail

Written by on December 1, 2013 in Kids, Travel - Comments Off on Syon Park – an enchanted, winter, nature trail

Looking for a Christmas activity? This weekend I set of to see Syon Park’s Enchanted Woodland, a magical event which sees an illuminated trail laid out through the Gardens and Arboretum of Syon Park, Brentford, London.

As the path winds around the Eighteenth Century lake, a range of exciting lighting effects bring the landscape to life in a whole new way. The shapes of Syon’s fine old trees are thrown into sharp contrast against the lighting, the night sky, and reflected in the mirror of the lake. The use of mirror balls, a dragon’s lair and woodland sounds all add to the enchanted experience. The route culminates with lights and music in the magnificent Great Conservatory, a beautiful glass house full of exotic plants and impressive waterfalls.

A truly unique and magical event for young and old alike.

The nature trail is open on Friday – Sundays only and the gates open at 5pm with last entry 8pm. It’s also a great price: Adults £7.00 – Children £3.00.
