Discover the Magic of Christmas at Gibside

The magical, after-dark, illuminated Christmas trail

A brand new Christmas trail featuring enchanting illuminations will light up the Georgian garden at the National Trust’s Gibside estate, near Gateshead from 26 Nov 2021 – 2 Jan 2022.

Wrap up warm and be transported into a winter wonderland where you will discover sparkling tunnels of light, walk under giant baubles and beneath trees glowing in Christmas colours.

Spend time together and create everlasting memories as you wander between the specially chosen illuminations, all choreographed to a soundtrack of Christmas classics.  Pause at the mesmerising flickering flames in the fire garden and don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas along the way.

Independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist to tasty treats on offer. Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with a *spiced winter warmer or *hot chocolate shared with someone special.

Christmas at Gibside provides a special way to celebrate the festive season with an unmissable outdoor experience. The trail is designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

Christmas at Gibside is brought to you by Sony Music in partnership with the National Trust.  The trail is created by Culture Creative.

Each trail is designed to showcase the natural and unique environment of the individual location and to immerse visitors into a world of light, fire and soundscape.
