Bolesworth at Christmas – Fun for all the Family

Bolesworth at Christmas – Fun for all the Family

If you’re anything like me then nothing says Christmas more than some twinkly lights, Santa and a glass of fizz. Luckily this December you can do all three together by heading to Christmas at Bolesworth in Cheshire.

All through December Bolesworth is going to be transformed into an illuminated wonderland. There will be a 1.2 mile trail with magical fun along the way for all of the family. The lights trail will first follow the lakeside, before taking the winding pathways through the woods.  There might even be a few of Santa’s reindeer to greet you.  If this wasn’t enough the Castle itself will also be spectacularly lit.
