As we prepare for the clocks to go back and the nights draw in, the world’s leading gardening charity is preparing to light up the dark with a brand-new illuminated experience at RHS Garden Rosemoor in Great Torrington, Devon. 

Hundreds of thousands of fairy lights and other colourful light displays will transform the garden with its longest ever Glow trail, creating magical moments for visitors throughout the festive season. From November, stroll beneath the stars and take in colourful tree canopies, striking sculptures, bushes draped in sparkle and water features basking in the glow.

Large trees will be bathed in light, showcasing the garden’s natural beauty and unique structures. 

This Christmas, the winter illuminations will extend into the misty Lower Woodland Walk for the first time, while the Rose Gardens, Winter Garden, lake and Cool Garden will also be bedecked in festive colour and sparkle.
