Christmas at York Museum Gardens is a brand new and exciting attraction coming this winter to York. For the first time ever, step into York Museum Gardens for an after-dark magical Christmas experience in an illuminated wonderland.
Greeted by the sights and sounds of Christmas, wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour. Begin your journey in the edible garden with the 12 Frames of Christmas, then take a walk past the forest of singing trees. Pause at the spectacular projection on one of York’s best kept secrets, St Mary’s Abbey ruins, and admire the majestic installation that has been specially-commissioned by a local Yorkshire artist. The gardens will even make magical music for you as you reach the 14th century Hospitium.
As you follow the path down, look out for Santa in his secret bothy, and enjoy some child-friendly fun with the ever-changing coloured mirror balls. The finale of fire on the Library Lawn will ensure that every part of this enchanted walk will capture the imagination of young and old.
Complete your visit with Christmas treats such as mulled wine and hot chocolate together with hot food, and gather round to toast your own marshmallows under the stars. You can even enjoy a ride on a Christmas vintage fair ride!
Don't miss this spectacular winter experience, as the inaugural Christmas at York Museum Gardens runs from Thursday 16 November 2017 – Monday 1 January 2018.
