We bombed up straight after the last day of school and sang Christmas song all the way, perfect way to kick of the Christmas break.
We arrived and parked in their adjacent car park for £3, it was so close and no hassle at all so great value, we thought.
The kids were starving as always and there is a delicious smelling Fish and Chip shop on site but we already had plans to have a pub supper on the way home so a quick cup of tea and a mince pie in the cafe to keep us going and we set off.
One of the many guides cleverly all wrapped in lights, gave us some information and we heading along the trail stopping at all the different parts; the kids were totally mesmerised instantly.
The music and smoke machines were quite spooky and I thought our 3yr old would be scared but the lights were so amazing he didn't care. It was also really interactive as well with actors, singers, making wishes and spells along the way.

The Winter Sorcerer's spell has been cast. The Alnwick Garden's beautiful autumn spirit has fallen asleep and, as it slumbers, an enchanted forest has grown. In the darkness, made of magic, enthralling and spellbinding sights await you. Join us for an after-dark tour of The Garden and encounter illuminations, projections, performances and music, which bring the unforgettable Sleeping Forest to life.

The boys completely loved it and totally got into it telling the nasty sorcerer off! I don't want to spoil the rest so I will let the pictures talk.
