Enchanted Woodland 2017 at Syon Park
Illuminated trail takes you through Syon Gardens
“Come for a walk in the Park, in the Dark….” As the nights draw in, Syon Park in West London once again hosts the Enchanted Woodland, which sees the 600-year-old gardens transformed by a display of lights and music.
Now in its 12th year the trail winds through the arboretum, passing the sixteenth century Syon House, and ends at the spectacular Great Conservatory. An array of lighting effects – from high-tech lasers to low tech candles – illuminate the visitor’s way through the trees.
Lighting effects range from high-tech to low key, but Head Gardener Topher Martyn says it’s the trees which are the real stars of the show as emphasis is placed on bringing out the textures of bark and the forms of some of our 400 different tree species.
The Gardens team at Syon are central to the whole event, designing and installing many of the features on route.
“We’re currently planning our own range of unique displays and can promise a few surprises!. Best of all, the event is run by the gardeners, so you can stop one of us and ask about the trees themselves!”
