Enchanted walks planned for Syon Park
Syon Park in London is offering the chance to view the famous gardens from a different perspective this winter.
From today (November 16th) to December 2nd, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday will offer visitors enjoying stays in London central hotels the chance to take a night time walk through an enchanted wonderland.
The walking trail will be lit with hundreds of coloured lights and is set to provide a great photo opportunity so visitors are being reminded to being their camera on their evening walk.
Syon Park is currently closed to the public over the winter season apart from the enchanted walks so it is a great chance to get a unique view of the London residence of the Duke of Northumberland.
Visitors are also being advised to wear comfortable footwear and ensure they wear warm clothing to protect against the winter night time chills.
The walks are on offer between 5pm and 9pm, with the last entry at 8pm. Tickets cost £7 for adults and £3 for children and will take in a number of Syon Park's key features such as the gardens, arboretum and the 18th century lake. The route ends in the Great Conservatory, which offers a range of food and hot drinks.
London's Kew Gardens is also getting into the Christmas mood with a number of special events being held in the run-up to the big day.
As well as a Father Christmas grotto, there is also late night shopping evenings to allow visitors to stock up on Christmas gifts and enjoy roasted chestnuts, mince pies and mulled wine.
Lara Mistry, Kew's festival manager, said: "Christmas at Kew is all about celebrating with your family and friends. With an array of festive activities, Kew is a great stop for a festive day out."
