It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. and what’s that glittering in the distance? It’s time to wrap up warm in your cosiest hats, scarves and gloves and make your way to Glow at RHS Garden Bridgewater this festive season, featuring a brand-new lit-up trail jam-packed with shimmer and sparkle.

Prepare to be lost in wonder and delight as you walk through the illuminated garden and explore the mesmerising family trail inspired by local stories and folklore. A magical spectrum of light will shine onto the plants, trees and shrubs, leaving them doused in light and magic, as you lace your way through arcs of yew trees, wrapped with glittering fairy lights, giving you that exciting festive feeling that warms your stomach.

After a colourful, light-filled adventure through the gardens and orchards, you will arrive at Moon Bridge Water. Here, you will be greeted with an unforgettable fountain display, where water meets light and colour, a real treat for the eyes and the soul.

After the dream-like journey through the gardens, Glow at Bridgewater also invites you to squeeze in some time for some Christmas shopping too, as RHS Bridgewater is packed with all sorts of treats, from yummy festive food to colourful decorations to beautiful plants for both indoors and outdoors. Browse through the impressive choice of decorations, trees and plants, and reduce that ever-growing gift list with the special gifts available on-site.

All that wonder and wandering is bound to leave the whole family feeling peckish. Warm yourself up with delicious treats and and hot and cold drink sat the Garden Cottage Shepherd’s Hut and the new Stables Cafe.

Glow at RHS Garden Bridgewater is open at various times: Wednesday to Saturday from 16 November – 17 December, and Tuesday – Friday from 20 – 30 December. Book your tickets and enjoy an outdoor, festive experience to remember.
