If you’ve seen all the Christmas lights in London but keen for more, then you might want to see the Magic Lantern Festival in Chiswick House & Garden.
Back in time for Christmas 2017, the Magical Lantern Festival in Chiswick House Garden is guaranteed to get you in the mood for the festive holidays.
The festival takes on a different theme every year. The last festival celebrated Chinese New Year by bringing to life the famous “Silk Road”, an ancient trade route connecting China to the West. This year’s editions celebrates all that is Christmassy..
The Magical Lantern Festival is a collection of lantern sculpture that illuminate the grounds of Chiswick House celebrating cultures from around in vibrant colours. Inside, you’re invited to discover life-size and even larger-than-life sculptures from “Santa and his reindeers”, “a traditional Chinese Palace”, and even Noah’s arc and the animal kingdom.
It can be quite cold so wrap up warm and thankfully, at the end of the lantern trail, there is an entertainment area with a food and drink area, bar, Santa’s Grotto, a handful of fairground rides for children.
The perfect family evening activity, a stroll through the Magic Lantern Festival is a sure fire way to get you ready for Christmas.
