Syon Park's Enchanted Woodland is a fascinating light display that can only be seen during three last weekends in November. The highlight of the park is its Great Conservatory in the centre of the historic arboretum that is wholly illuminated and glowing in the dark. Visitors can explore the rest of the park following a glittering trail for 30-40 minutes. Light installations and interactive displays along the way will make this walk especially exciting.

A divinely illuminated trail goes around the ornamental lake and through the famous arboretum of Syon House. A relaxed and informal walk suits all ages. The event started in early 2000s now gathers a few thousands each night and is being copied by gardens all over the world. The main idea of the display is to celebrate the amazing collection of trees in the park that can be seen in the winter in a whole new light.

Syon Park boasts 400 species of tree in its grounds, being one of the most beautiful parks in London. It's a historic home of the Duke of Northumberland and his family that has stood for over half a millennium. The Syon Park's Enchanted Woodland runs on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only from 5 p.m. to 7:40 p.m. Admission is £10 for adults.
