What is it?
Chiswick House gardens is transformed into a beautiful display of magical, colourful lanterns. The displays are beautiful and imaginative. You can only imagine the amount of time and effort put into each one. It’s open 5pm-10pm. Check the website for further details.
Where is it?
Chiswick house & gardens. Look out for the signs. It’s not easy to get to.
How much is it?
Children 3 and under are free but will have to pay for the grotto.
Tickets are from £14. Please check the website for further details.
What’s there to do?
The lanterns – there are so many beautiful displays. Was definitely my favourite part of the night.
Santas grotto – £10 and your child gets a gift and a photo (you have to pay for prints) I wasn’t too impressed at how quickly the time went with Santa. We was literally in there for like 2 minutes.
I wouldn’t recommend seeing Santa there as there are plenty of other places you can go to where you don’t feel like you’re being rushed. The gift wasn’t even wrapped up which I thought was quite odd.
There’s also a small fairground with bumper cars and a few rides and a few places to eat and drink.
It was a very nice night out. Freezing!!!!! But nice. My only disappointment was the Santas grotto, but the gift was nice and my daughter loves it.
Need to know
- It’s going to be cold. Make sure you are all wrapped up warm.
- It’s outside, wellies will be your best friend.
- I would recommend getting public transport. Parking can be a nightmare
I took so many beautiful pictures you can see some of them below.
