A wonderful thing to do for the holidays! This is free, and my 6 year old was dazzled by the children, the building... everything! Plus walking at night in the grounds with the lights and music is awesome.

Very romantic and beautiful at night with all the lights. A free activity and worth the time to take for a evening stroll. Suggestion - I can be cooler than what you think because of the wind so dress accordingly so you stay warm.
