Man’s best friend can join in the festive fun at Christmas at Bedgebury this year, making the trail even more of a family affair than ever before.
Four-legged friends kept under control on a short lead are welcome to join the festive fun at Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest’s Christmas light trail, which runs from Friday, November 17 until Sunday, December 31.
The trail, which is more than a mile long, features installations designed by a range of international and UK-based artists which portray the forest in a majestic light, beneath unique canopies drenched in seasonal colour and inspired by the landscape.
New installations for 2023 include Firefly, sources of light which unpredictably dart, twist, turn, fade and surge between the branches of the trees.
The winter trail through the beautiful Kent countryside is a place where fairy-tale meets fantasy and larger-than-life flora provides plenty of memorable selfie moments.
Grab a seasonal snack from the Bedgebury café at the visitor centre or one of the hand-picked street food vendors who bring an indulgent twist to tempting treats on offer. Complete your walk under the stars with a perfectly festive spiced winter warmer, hot chocolate or toasted marshmallow and share it with someone special.
Christmas trails are the perfect way to get together with friends and loved ones, designed for visitors of all ages and just a 20-minute drive from Tunbridge Wells and around an hour from Canterbury, Brighton and Eastbourne.
