Festive light trails are such a tradition for us. We’ll go to at least one or two over the festive season and love to find new holiday light displays, seeing the different installations and really getting into the festive spirit. There’s something so magical about holiday lights, especially if you’re seeing them with your nearest and dearest.
I thought I’d put together all the Christmas light trails across Berkshire in the hope that there’ll be an event with dates that work for you. I’ve included the lowest cost – usually for off peak times – and so make sure you click through to the event website to check up to date information and book your tickets.
