Gibside will be more than jolly and bright as the grounds are transformed into a winter wonderland. There will be trees interwoven with neon, colourful strings stretched between towering canopies, singing trees, larger-than-life illuminated crystals plus snowflakes, and stars dripping from branches, all choreographed to a soundtrack of much-loved seasonal music.


New Trail highlights for 2021:

  • Christmas Cathedral – be showered in light as you walk under the tall arches made of a thousand pea lights
  • Neon Tree – pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the Neon Tree glowing in the night
  • Tree Stars – watch the magical tree stars shimmer on the trees


Independent street food vendors bring a delicious twist to tasty treats on offer. Have yourself a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with *toasted marshmallows, a *spiced winter warmer or *hot chocolate shared with someone special.

My Christmas at Gibside provides a special way to celebrate the festive season with an unmissable outdoor experience. The trail is designed for visitors of all ages and is accessible to all to enjoy.

Christmas at Gibside is brought to you by Sony Music in partnership with the National Trust.  The trail is created by Culture Creative.
