Our family festive trail will go ahead from Saturday 5th December. The trail has moved outdoors this year, and ticket holders will be able to explore the new trail through the Walled Gardens. Tickets are still available for this event. 

Follow the path through the Enchanted Festive Forest in the Walled Gardens full of magical scenes to discover.

Find all the items hidden in on our festive themed outdoor trail to collect a small prize at the end.

Timed tickets only, selected dates.

Children: £5.00 (aged 1-12).

Babes in arms (under 12 months) can visit free of charge.

Adults free when accompanying a paying child.

Can I bring my dog?

Sorry, dogs are not permitted in the Enchanted Festive Forest.

How long does the trail take?

The trail is aimed at young children and there are things to spot along the route. The trail takes between 20-30 minutes to complete.

What time can I go in?

Tickets for the Enchanted Forest are timed, with sessions starting on the hour. You can enter the trail at any time within your one-hour time slot.

Do I need a ticket to the Park and Gardens to be able to visit?

You do not need to purchase a ticket for the Park and Gardens to be able to visit the Enchanted Forest.

However, if you would like to explore the Deer Park while you are here you will need to purchase a Park ticket for the day of your visit.

There is so much to see and do at Raby Castle at Christmas, so why not make a day of it. Come and spot the Deer in the park, buy your very own Raby Christmas Tree, and visit our Stables Christmas shop.

The Deer Park and Walled Gardens are open daily from 10am – 4pm.
