Join us on a multi-sensory journey with the whole family at the most magical time of the year. Immersive light art installations will bring our winter gardens to life and take you on a festive adventure of light and sound.
ASHRIDGE HOUSE: ILLUMINATED
Our new designers, Luminism, created the very first light trail in the UK fifteen years ago; bringing the joy of Christmas to millions of people across the country. This year they will be sprinkling their magic across Ashridge House for the first time.
As well as the glittering light trail, there will also be a festive food and drinks village so you can start the evening with a delicious winter warmer.
Ashridge House: Illuminated is fully accessible, fun for the whole family and has parking close to the start of the trail. Entry times are available between 4.30pm - 8.30pm (last entry varies according to date), and if you book soon, you can take advantage of our early bird offer: 15% off all ticket types until 31 August 2022
