Take a wander around magical homes and gardens decorated for Christmas.

The Christmas lights of Bath 2019.

Festive light displays are wonderful to see and get children (and adults) excited and in the mood for the Christmas holidays. These displays are often very popular, especially the closer it gets to Christmas, so early booking is strongly advised.
