The Magical Lantern Festival enters its third year in London following two hugely successful years at Chiswick House & Gardens. Due to the exceptional demand for tickets, to accommodate more visitors, this year we will be open five days a week from Wednesday to Sunday each week and open every day during the Xmas holidays apart from Xmas Eve, Xmas Day and Boxing Day.
This year's Christmas themed Lantern Festival will illuminate the gardens turning it into a spectacular fusion of dual culture, vibrant colours and artistic sculptures! Prepare to enter a magical experience and discover life-sized and large-than-life lanterns in all shapes and forms, from 'Santa and his Reindeers' to a magnificent giant lantern recreation of an 'Ancient city from the Song Dynasty'.
We promise visitors a truly amazing experience, a visual feast of light and illumination, hidden amongst the grandeur of the 18th Century Gardens, which lends itself perfectly to the layout of the lanterns with its combination of lakes, woodland, gardens and pathways.
The festival will not only wow visitors with its beautiful hand-sculpted lanterns, the entertainment area adds another dimension to this wonderful night out with a food and drink area, bar, Santa's Grotto, handful of fairground rides for children and merchandise marquee where visitors can buy a souvenir of their experience to take home. The festival is open from 5pm to 10pm with last entry at 9pm.
There really is no better family-friendly festival to visit this Christmas.....
