Blenheim Palace Illuminated Light Trail

Blenheim Palace Illuminated Light Trail

Well, first of all HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my friends, family and faithful followers!

I’m not the biggest fan of celebrating on New Year’s Eve, but this year was one of my top 3 experiences. We decided to go to Blenheim Palace‘s Illuminated Light Trail and Alice in the Palace event. It was quite pricey, but prayed it was worth the cost. I can’t even tell you how incredible it was. I’m still absolutely blown away by the whole afternoon. The amount of effort that went into every little detail was staggering; From the beautifully decorated house to the mind-blowing lights and sounds on the 2 mile walk in the grounds. I would recommend wrapping up very warm and wearing comfortable shoes! Betsy was snug in her vintage Silver Cross drop-toe pushchair, so we were very envious.

We decided to dress for the occasion and our efforts were definitely appreciated by staff and visitors! Betsy was the Cheshire Cat (or ‘Treasure Cat’ as she calls it), Mr.Mew was the White Rabbit (he left his ears in the car), Coco was Alice and I was the Queen of Hearts. Luckily we all had most things already in our wardrobes!

My photos and videos don’t do it justice at all, but I’ll post them anyway. I will do a second post with the palace photos as I took those on my camera before the battery ran out. The below were taken on my phone. We will definitely be going again next year. I hope they do a theme like Peter Pan or Narnia!
