The Magical Lantern Festival enters its third year in London following two hugely successful years at Chiswick House & Gardens. I was booked to go in February this year but ill health meant I could not go. So when they announced they were opening over the Christmas period, I booked again to go. Due to the exceptional demand for tickets, to accommodate more visitors, this year they will be open five days a week from Wednesday to Sunday each week and open every day during the Xmas holidays apart from Xmas Eve, Xmas Day and Boxing Day.
You start by walking down a path of snowmen on both sides. And it really is lovely. The only thing is I just wish it was warmer at night !
The Disney inspired Bambi and A Bug’s Life were amazing!
Noah’s Ark stopped me in my step. You literally walk around a corner and you come across this. So beautiful !
Loved these and they reminded me of Finding Nemo turtles !
This is the Ancient City From The Song City, it is beautiful !
Adorable dalmatians !
I was so lucky to visit the Magical Lantern Festival, we went at 5 pm during the week and it was not very busy. I expect the weekends to be busy. The festival is open from 5 pm to 10 pm with last entry at 9pm. There really is no better family-friendly festival to visit this. I would recommend it anyone but if you have mobility issues like me. Take care, you walk around the park which I did not expect and I did pass out when I got back. And it is very very cold in London in the winter months, be warned !
