The 1.2km trail winds its way through ancient woodland encountering a mixture of theatre and fantasy and is illuminated at night by a host of spectacular light effects.
Choose to walk or don a pair of Nordic skis to make your journey around the Enchanted Forest, where you will meet magical characters and mystical animals along the way.

As you reach the heart of the Enchanted Forest you will discover a beautiful lake, illuminated by colour changing light effects. At the waters edge you'll find grazing animals all beautifully illuminated and reflecting in the shimmering water. Hovering on the waters surface are ethereal angels lit with LED lights that sparkle and reflect.
In addition, to interactive pieces in the forest, walkers can make their own magical sounds on the woodland instruments.
