The candles are lit at dusk and the displays represent anything from animals to cartoon characters. Tapers will be available free of charge but a small bit of advice – get there early as the queues can get quite long!
In addition to the lighting of the candles there are often fire shows and entertainers
The event began in 1896 when Princess Eugiene of France visited the town and her route through the gardens was lit by candlelight.
Nowadays thousands of people visit each year to re-enact this visit.
Charming, mesmerizing and beautiful, Candlelight Nights is a warming and captivating event for all ages. From 7.30pm (approx).
