Enjoy a brand new after-dark illuminated trail through the festive grounds and gardens!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year when twinkling lights and seasonal sounds fill the air with festive fun. Discover sparkling tunnels of light, walk under giant baubles and beneath the trees illuminated in Christmas colours. For a moment of reflection, pause at mesmerising, flickering flames in the fire garden, gaze at the specially chosen illuminations and glimpse Father Christmas along the way!

Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with a spiced winter warmer or luxury hot chocolate shared with someone special.

Your very merry Christmas starts here! Limited event capacity with timed entry. Plan now to secure the date and time of your choice.

Thursday 23rd December will see the Illuminated Trail open early at 4pm for audiences with specific access requirements. These slots allow 45 minutes before the main evening audience start out on the trail.


These sessions are created for young people and adults who would love to experience the Christmas at Temple Newsam Illuminated trail without the usual numbers of people and at reduced audio volumes. These sessions will also be early enough that they will just about start in twilight making it a less daunting transition in to the dark.


The capacity of these sessions will be limited to ensure that the trail remains less crowded and more relaxed. Audiences will be the first group on-site and therefore all areas will be relatively clear.


It should be noted that on many of our trails the path network is not tarmac, and although there are stewards along the route to assist you, the trail will follow the natural contours of the venue. When booking, please talk to our staff about any additional support you may need for exiting the illuminated trail through quieter areas or help with parking closer to the start of the trail.


Ticket prices for these special access sessions are the same as the rest of illuminated trail – with free carer tickets where required. To book these sessions, please visit here
