Enchanted Christmas walk is brilliant , amongst the lit up trees wrapped up and great way to stretch the legs for a good hour , ideal for the young to the old and half way round you can stop for a hot drink or a mulled wine , was very cold so wrapping up is a must but the clear... More

I don't want to appear critical, but when when you pay to walk around a park you shouldn't have to fight your way through crowds almost continually. When booking it asks which time you want to 'go on the walk' - we chose 6pm. Parking was quite easy, and free even if the torch waving attendants seemed uncertain where you... More

We love visiting this Arboretum! and this is the second year on the trot we have visited it for the enchanted christmas. Its a beautiful breath of fresh air! The lights on the trees are lovely and the effects they have! It was a bit too busy for my liking though, walking around was bareable....but where they have the food... More

Spent a lovely evening here walking the Enchanted Christmas Trail. Lots of lovely lit up trees along a mile long walk which took us around an hour. Great atmosphere with lots of people but no pushing and shoving which was nice and we were able to take lots of photographs. Opportunity to purchase mulled wine, hot chocolate with marshmallows and... More

Beautiful trees, beautifully done. But way way way to busy. You couldn't walk for people. Couldn't let my 18 month old out of the pram or let go of my 3 year olds hand. What a shame. I definitely will never go at Christmas again. They have completely oversubscribed.

Have always wanted to go to Westonbirt for the enchanted Christmas walk but was very disappointed in what was on offer. Walking around the trail you would have no idea this was a Christmas event. All it was was a few lights pointing at a few trees and I felt it was nowhere worth the £60 I paid for our... More

Visited Westonbirt with the changing seasons and the views were fantastic, great walk to find the Gruffalo with the family - would recommend arriving early as it fills up quickly at this time of the year!

What an amazing day - the colours of the trees were amazing. My elderly parents really enjoyed the walk around the Aboretum

This is a delightful experience and well worth the £12 entry. The light show in the trees takes about an hour to get round. Entry is on a limited time entry so it is not too crowded. The trees are beautiful in daylight but even more so lit up at night. After walking round there are stalls selling food and... More

Overall I think the experience is great. My husband and I went last year and we found it amazing so we decided to go back this year with our son and granddaughter. It definitely has a 'wow' factor and the staggered timings are a great idea. However, last year we went earlier whereas this year we went for a trail... More
