As the nights draw in, Syon Park in West London once again hosts the Enchanted Woodland, which sees the 600-year-old gardens transformed by a display of lights and music.
Now in its 14th year the trail winds through the arboretum, passing the sixteenth century Syon House, and ends at the spectacular Great Conservatory.
An array of lighting effects – from high-tech lasers to low tech
candles – illuminate the visitor’s way through the trees. The event is put together by a team of lighting designers and Syon staff so you can even ask them about the trees!
