If you’re looking for something to do in the North East this winter, Forest of Light is a great choice!
You will find Beamish Hall on the outskirts of Beamish, one of the biggest attractions in the North East. Beamish Hall is a 5* star hotel that is family run and popular for weddings, luxury stays and weddings too!
They host many events over the year and this winter they have opened Forest of Light
What to expect
Open from 4pm when the sun sets, the Forest of Light is a roughly 45 min walk. The light attraction takes you into the grounds around the hotel and it’s best to take your walking boots as it can get muddy.
The parking is free and there is plenty of it and the attraction entrance closes at 8pm. The event it ticketed to stop everyone rushing in at once and when inside you will find your able to stroll at your own pace. The trail is mostly flat however can be bumpy so I would recommend to wear walking boots if you have them.
From the car park you can go straight onto the trail, there is no walking to get to the start and the finish brings you back via the toilets.
The trail takes you into a magical woodland experience. You will find lots of wonderful light experiences for all ages to enjoy and interactive ones too. There are lots of flashing lights throughout so be aware of you have any conditions.
Once you start you will go inside and out and is mostly covered so if it is raining you will be fairly sheltered.
Small children were laughing along they way and enjoying the music and its a great event to take them too this winter.
Along the way there are plenty of photo opportunities and you could even go for a bite to eat at The Stables before of after your walk.
The light show is on until January 2022 so plenty of time to book and not miss out.
