  • About

    Full of magic, sparkle and wonder, the Christmas Tree Wonderland trail will come to life with regular light shows, animated characters and live music along the route.

    This brand new event for 2018 will run from 16th November 2018 until 2nd January 2019 and will see over 100 glittering trees and illuminations.

    Starting at the seafront the Bournemouth Big Wheel will be lit up marking the start of the Christmas Tree Wonderland Trail. Next to the wheel you will find the Moscow Tree and as you make your way towards the Lower Gardens the Tree of Light will light up the night sky.

    The blue lights of the St Petersburg Tree will lead you to an enchanted walkway through the gardens, with glimmering lights that lead you to the Bethlehem Tree complete with its own nativity scene.

    The Rockery will be transformed with 40 miniature trees and a waterfall of light and look out for the illuminated gingerbread people amongst the trees!

    Further up you will come across the replica of the spectacular Seattle Tree with its delicate bauble shapes and then up intoPine Tree Walk, covered with a canopy of cascading lights.

    Located between the blushing pink of the Warsaw Tree and the traditional Oslo Tree surrounded by giant illuminated Christmas parcels is Santa’s Grotto…..we hope you’ve been good!

    Standing at 60ft high with 30,000 lights, the Bournemouth Wonderland Tree is a spectacle you will not be able to miss! Catch one of the spell-binding light shows, accompanied by Christmas music, before walking right through the centre of the tree!

    Afterwards skate under the stars at the SKATE outdoor ice rink or enjoy an aromatic mulled wine or a steamy hot chocolate topped with creamy marshmallow at the Moguls Alpine Bar.

    Make your way up into the square where you can browse the stalls at the Christmas Alpine Market and enjoy a drink with friends at the Alpine Lodge.

    Further up in the town at The Triangle you will find a giant illuminated Teddy Bear and the Christmas Upside-Down House, and at the other end of town walk through a giant illuminated Bauble at Beale Place.

    Horseshoe Common will be sparkling with festoon lighting and up at Lansdowne Roundabout you’ll find a Christmas tree, icicles and polar bears!

    And don’t forget to check out the coastal villages of Boscombe, Southbourne and Westbourne which will be celebrating the festive period with a range of events and attractions. Check out our Whats On Christmas Events section for more details.
