October events: Be wowed by Abbotsbury's Enchanted Illuminations

Abbotsbury, Dorset

Discover an illuminated wonderland and Halloween display at one of Dorset’s finest annual events.

Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens become ablaze with light and colour for the annual illuminations every October and early November. Explore an enchanted route around the gardens as floodlights illuminate the paths and candles flicker in the garden’s many nooks and crannies.

Big and little kids alike are invited to don their spookiest fancy dress costume for the Halloween Family Fun Nights. There will be a spectacular laser rave, a scary scars workshop, a creepy-crawly bug show, eerie characters to meet and free face-painting. What better place to celebrate Halloween than in the midst of the light show, with the trees and plants casting spooky shadows?
