Christmas Light Trail Experiences in Cheshire 2020

13 November, 2020 - 3 January, 2021

Towards the end of November, as the nights are drawing in and there’s a chill in the air, local cities, towns and villages have their Christmas Lights Switch On.  The festivities are often combined with other entertainment from Christmas markets to carol singers and sometimes even Father Christmas will make an appearance.

This year will likely be very different and there might not be the usual Christmas lights switch on events.  However, there are a few places with spectacular illuminations.

2020 Christmas Light Trails in Cheshire

Chester Zoo Lanterns

Escape to the eleven fantastical worlds, each different from the last, that will take you on an illuminating adventure like no other! Be immersed in this magical and uniquely Chester Zoo evening event that’s inspired by some of our favourite festive family tales, giving you the chance to see the zoo in a whole new light.

Dunham Massey Christmas Lights

Now in its fourth year, surround yourself with sparkle as the after dark trail at Dunham Massey lights up for 2020. You’ll find new moments to share with friends and family – brand new bright lights for winter nights.

Lightopia Festival at Heaton Park

Explore interactive exhibits, immersive light installations, and the magical illuminated trail. This year’s event will also feature new creations to discover. New themes to uncover include a stand-out Christmas showcase, Astronomy display, and the immersive Musical City.

Enchanted Christmas trail at Knowsley Safari

Enjoy the safari after dark at a fabulous Christmas time event, but don’t worry your path will be lit with magical lights guiding you through our enchanted trail.

Christmas Lights Switch Ons

If and when announcements are made for Christmas light switch ones in towns and cities across Cheshire, they’ll be included here.
