“Offers a budget-friendly option for families looking to extend their festive experience”
“The overall experience was a joyous blend of lights, laughter, and festive cheer”
“For the money this was a lovely trail that the kids really enjoyed and saved me a lot of money compared to other trails out there and during a time when money is tight being able to spend a festive night out with the kids and not breaking the bank is a bonus”
“Great end to a festive day, the food truck serving baps were delicious, the Light trail was enjoyable. Bit of a bumpy walk but was thankfully informed prior to wear wellies and they were certainly needed.”
“Not the grandest light trail I have ever been to, but I didn’t expect that for the price and so overall had a lovely evening spent with friends getting into the festive spirit.”
