The Enchanted Winter Gardens opened on Saturday 12 December at Antrim Castle Gardens, with a feast of seasonal festivities that delighted everyone and brought the magic of Christmas alive.

Those who attended were amazed at the stunning light installations including the spectacular transformation of the formal gardens and trees with multi-coloured lights, the cascading courtyard lighting and the traditional sparkling Christmas tree.

The Forest of Fire brought a warm glow whilst the Christmas crafts, Festive fayre, Reindeer Trail and Santa’s Grotto, stimulated all of the senses and provided a magical Christmas experience for all the family.

The Enchanted Winter Garden is open from 4pm until 8pm daily until Sunday 20th December 2015. All of the enchanting activities are available for the duration of the event with no admission fee.

The weekends will see the addition of some special Christmas characters including the “Elves who lost the Christmas wishes,” Golly the fire performing Elf, Olaf and Elsa from Frozen and an enchanted Christmas train to provide an extra touch of sparkle to this wonderful family event.
