Palace of Light at Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU
Date and Time
7 December 2022 - 2 January
5:00pm - 8:30pm

This Christmas, you’re invited on an enchanting festive lantern and light experience at Hampton Court Palace with brand new, bold displays through an extended route for 2022.

This year’s light trail is bigger and better than ever before, with more elaborate installations and dramatic displays, taking a route through the wilderness, formal gardens and palace that’s double the length of 2021. There will also be an expanded fantastic food and drink offer from street food pioneers, KERB.

Encounter curious creatures, from glittering unicorns to polka-dot panthers and from lurking lions to galloping greyhounds, as you wander through the atmospheric gardens and historic palace courtyards after dark.

These captivating luminous and dramatic displays are created by a skilled team of artists and craftspeople, and are inspired by the Royal Beasts, a collection of heraldic statues commissioned for Hampton Court by Henry VIII himself. Palace of Light is a chance to experience this unique historic palace like never before.

Enjoy the experience at a leisurely pace, allowing around 45 - 60 minutes to soak up the atmosphere and take in the displays.

To truly make a day of it, you can also purchase a light trail and palace admission combi-ticket to enjoy a day at Hampton Court Palace before exploring Palace of Light after dark.
