Glow 10 Nov - 1 Jan

Selected dates (Wed - Sat)

It’s time to Glow! See the garden sparkle this festive season and follow dazzling displays lighting a magical trail.

Wrap up warm and gather family and friends for an evening of enchantment with a twinkling light trail around RHS Garden Hyde Hall.

Follow the winding route through a selection of your favourite garden areas and discover shrubs awash with colourful lights and trees lighting up the night sky. In the Winter Garden, be dazzled by our iconic willow structures and leaf sculptures immersed in festive colour.

This year, the trail has been extended to include the Australia and New Zealand Garden. From here, take a moment to look back across the garden and experience dazzling views of the illuminated vista below you.

Along the way, be sure to take a break and enjoy some tasty treats from our festive German-style stalls. You’ll find warming food and mulled wine, spiced-apple and hot chocolate to keep you aglow.

Wed – Sat, 10 November – 18 December (5pm – 9pm)
21–23 & 29 December – 1 January (5pm – 9pm)
