Look forward to special time together.

Gibside will be more than jolly and bright with the grounds are transformed into a winter wonderland.

There will be trees interwoven with neon, colourful strings stretched between towering canopies, singing trees, larger-than-life illuminated crystals plus snowflakes and stars dripping from branches, all choreographed to a soundtrack of much-loved seasonal music.

Highlights include the Christmas Cathedral - where guests will be showered in light as they walk under the tall arches made of thousands of pea lights.

Neon Tree will give visitors the chance to pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the Neon Tree glowing in the night.
