Christmas at Bute Park
From late November, the park will be taken over by dazzling light displays, interactive installations, a flickering fire area, an enchanting fairy tree forest, laser shows & mirror balls, as well as locally sourced street food, mulled wine and plenty more Christmas festivities.
THE LIGHT TRAIL
Immerse yourself in magic this festive season with an unforgettable light trail for you and the whole family to enjoy. Journey through a breathtaking spectrum of Christmas illuminations, sculptures and special effects, all set within the spectacular grounds of Bute Park.
