Light up the dark autumn evenings with a walk through Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, as their Floodlit Evening Walks offer visitors a chance to see the gardens in a different light.
Visitors will be able to wander along the pathways, taking in the Pavilion and the lily ponds, as they are lit by colourful floodlights, casting a magical atmosphere on the gardens. The wonderful autumn colours of the plants and trees will be enhanced by the glow from the special lighting.
In addition to the evening event, there will be Halloween Fun Nights, running from Thursday 31st to Saturday 2nd November. Celebrate the spooky season by donning your fancy dress and heading to the Pavilion.
The walk around the gardens will take around 45 minutes to complete, with a wheelchair accessible route also available. Visitors are advised to bring warm clothing, sensible footwear and a torch.
Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens were first established in 1765 by the first Countess of Ilchester as a kitchen garden for her nearby castle. Today the gardens contain a mixture of formal and informal flowers, with Camellia groves and magnolias, and many exotic and unusual flowers.
