The Glow trail at RHS Wisley is back, and it’s the longest and most lavish route to date! Get ready for captivating light shows and spectacular displays in the most festive garden around.

The fun begins the second you enter this enchanting winter wonderland, which is found a short train ride away in south west London. You’ll be greeted by sparkling cherry trees and other dazzling displays. Journey through the Seven Acres and Rock Garden to see their spectacular shrubs in all their glory, before making your way to the Wisteria Walk where twinkling lights will guide the way.

The star of the show is definitely the gigantic Glasshouse. Expect festive installations both inside and out, including a projected light show and arguably the most stunning Christmas tree around. Festive music will help to set the mood during your visit and there’ll be plenty more surprises in store at this magical garden.

In addition, there are four fabulous places to dine if you work up an appetite along the trail. The Terrace Restaurant serves traditional Christmas dinners with all the trimmings, or head to the Greenhouse Café for some delicious mulled wine.
