Times subscribers joined us to explore the Christmas trail before it opens to the public.

For the very first time, the picture perfect gardens at Blenheim Palace opened for an after-dark festive trail along unique winding paths, beside tranquil water and through extraordinary Parkland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown.

After arriving at Blenheim Palace, subscribers made their way to the Water Terraces, where they were met with mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies.

The magical seasonal trail featured a scented Fire Garden, a circular carpet of dancing flames, singing Christmas trees and more.
