Be Amazed at New Light & Fire Trail: Ignite

Three venues have been confirmed for Ignite; the magical twilight trail of light, lanterns, fantasy and fire.

Deep in the heart of the Dorset countryside, the gardens of the National Trust's Kingston Lacy, near Wimborne, form the perfect setting for this new, after-dark experience.

Similarly you can visit the 18th century Georgian splendour of the gardens at the National Trust's Gibside near Gateshead to experience this new event.

PLUS a brand new trail for February 2021 will be held in the gardens of the National Trust’s Polesden Lacey in the Surrey Hills.

What to Expect

Lit by lanterns, wander between flickering flames and beside stately majestic trees from one amazing space to another.

Join with family and friends to immerse yourself in the shimmering effects of fire and light. Expect the unexpected as you glimpse fairies in the Fernery, fiery fish and woodland wildlife sculpted in willow all within an enchanting landscape filled with wonder.
