Christmas at Bolesworth

Christmas at Bolesworth is an exceptional time as the castle grounds are transformed into a festive paradise, adorned in seasonal sparkle and yuletide cheer for a month of winter magic. 

This, the most wonderful time of the year, is perfect for friends and families to get together and enjoy the season of goodwill. There will, of course, be plenty to keep the little ones amused, however, there’s a host of activities planned, within the extensive Bolesworth grounds, to make this equally as adult-friendly too.

The Bolesworth all-new 1.2-mile Christmas Lights Trail will be bathed in seasonal colour and illuminated by thousands of stunning lights, projections and interactive installations. With the Bolesworth Castle flooded in unique Son et Lumière projections as a background, visitors will get to enjoy the sight of spectacular light pyramids and orbs on the ground, with lasers, glittering mirror balls and stunning dancing fountains on the ornamental Bolesworth lake.

Christmas markets, sited alongside a large fairground, will feature Xmas gift shopping and mouth-watering food stands serving up a selection of indulgent goodies, from savoury hog roast to delicious, sweet treats. Shoppers can enjoy a glass of spiced mulled wine enjoy a celebratory cocktail or a hot chocolate and soak up the grin-inducing atmosphere of the event.

Heated domes with comfortable and relaxed lounging areas on Bolesworth’s VIP Champagne Island provide a secret hideaway on a hidden island where guests can sit and watch the world go by. The (additional) price includes the use of a heated dome for up to eight people, and a bottle of champagne.

Elsewhere, a winter-warming indoor Alpine Lodge, with welcoming bar and plenty of seating will be packed with things to do together with food, and drink areas.

Those making the trip to the Bolesworth Christmas extravaganza on the night of Friday the 2nd of December, will be treated to an added-bonus in the form of fireworks to celebrate the opening of the month-long event.

Simply put, a trip to Bolesworth could well be the perfect way to celebrate Christmas in Cheshire this year.
