The magical, after-dark, illuminated Christmas trail
Belton’s hugely popular Christmas light trail returns for its second year with a host of amazing new features from 27 November 2020 – 3 January 2021.
A magical mile-long trail, featuring incredible light installations and enchanting visitors with classical Christmas tunes, will transform the gardens at the National Trust’s Belton House.
Trail highlights for 2020
- Meadow of Light
- Laser Garden
- Tunnel of Light
- Larger than Life Candlesticks
Following last year’s success, surround yourself with sparkle this Christmas as the after dark trail lights up for 2020.
You’ll find new moments to share with friends and family – brand new bright lights for winter nights.
Enter a world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics and wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour.
Discover giant luminescent candles rising high into the night sky on your way towards a meadow of light shimmering as it gently sways. There are giant baubles, glowing flowers and snowflakes where you least expect them and clusters of trees wrapped in ever-changing ribbons of colour.
The tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour and this year why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the water-side fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine or hot chocolate*.
Don’t forget to watch out for Father Christmas along the way.
Christmas at Belton is brought to you by leading events promoter Raymond Gubbay Limited, a division of Sony Music, in partnership with the National Trust. The trail is created by Culture Creative.

About the National Trust
The National Trust is a conservation charity founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces, and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy.

Entirely independent of Government, the National Trust looks after more than 250,000 hectares of countryside, 780 miles of coastline and hundreds of special places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
