Is This Beautiful Enchanted Woodland The Most Magical Place In London?

share on:

We’re not surprised that Syon Park’s Enchanted Woodland is back for its twelfth year – the gorgeous array of lights and visuals are enough to transport even the most irritated, stressed Londoner to an enchanted realm of tranquillity. Should you visit the Enchanted Woodlands from Friday, November 10, you’ll be taken on a trail through the 600-year-old gardens, which have been spectacularly illuminated with a spectrum of gorgeous colour.

The route goes on for about a mile and can take any time between 30 minutes and an hour to complete. We suggest you wrap up warm (because, funnily enough, this enchanted woodland is outdoors) and take your time exploring the wonderful touches along the trail. There are interactive lights to play with, as well as plenty of opportunities to get your nighttime photography skills up to scratch. After all, it’s possibly the most Instagrammable place you’ll visit in London this winter.

The Enchanted Woodland is open from 5.00pm to 9.00pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only. We suggest you book tickets in advance, as the woodland is a very popular trail. Tickets are £9 for adults and £3 for children. You can find out more here.
