The Gardens

Connaught Gardens beautifully illuminated for the very first time

Discover a world of colour, atmosphere and creativity

Imagine a wonderland of colourful lighting and festive themes all in one place. Connaught@Christmas reimagines the tranquil Connaught Gardens nestling above Sidmouth high above the sea. The unique illuminated trail has a number of themed areas to enjoy plus the chance to view a Christmas grotto with a certain VIP visitor.

This enchanting 1-2 hour experience is made even more joyful with yuletide music and carols performed on the bandstand in the heart of the gardens and warming mulled wine and hot chocolate also on offer.

This is truly an unmissable Christmas family experience!

The route makes use of the existing paved walkways of the garden providing an accessible route across 90% of the gardens (avoiding the steps). This also means there’s no mud and no need for wellies.

Connaught@Christmas has been designed by a specialist team renowned for illuminated walks across the UK and internationally. Using energy efficient LED lighting the event has superb green credentials.

Come and see for yourself and be amongst the first to see Connaught Gardens magically lit up for the very first time.
