A captivating after dark, illuminated trail.

Set to ambient music, you will follow the trail as it meanders through the historic Coombe Abbey Park. Stunning lighting elements and light play will guide you along the way, punctuated by approximately 13 wow moments/highlights.

The trail is approximately one mile long and (depending on how quickly you walk through) will take circa 60-90 minutes to complete.

Warm up by our fire pit, where you can toast marshmallows (purchase your marshmallows on site or bring your own marshmallows and skewers) and indulge in some of the food and drink offerings available* to purchase from the Cafe in the Park and the Kiosk in the Park located by the Top Pool (approximately half way around the trail)

*Please note that the availability of all catering outlets will be subject to any COVID 19 restrictions which may be in operation as at the time of Luminate.

Please note that the entire trail takes place outside (obviously during winter and after dark). It will be cold, dark and often wet! Please wrap up warm and wear sturdy footwear.

Please note we will not have 'traditional festive' decorations at Luminate and Father Christmas will not be there - he'll be far too busy getting everything ready at the North Pole!
The trail starts just after the Visitor Centre, just before the bridge into the Park. It will follow a clearly defined route through the Park. The trail is approx one mile long.
There is a path all the way around, marked by festoon lighting throughout the duration. So just follow the festoon!
In order to ensure your own safety and enjoyment (and the safety of our other visitors and staff), all visitors must remain on the clearly marked trail at all times. All children and vulnerable adults must be closely supervised at all times. Luminate takes place in the winter, after dark in a country estate setting. All areas other than the clearly defined trail will have potential trip hazards and risks to health and safety, which may be difficult to see during the time that Luminate is operational, so please stay on the path at all times and adhere to any instructions/advice given by our stewarding staff.

Please note that there are areas of unfenced water located off the trail at Luminate Coombe. Please ensure all children and vulnerable adults are carefully supervised at all times.

Conditions on the trail will be continually monitored by our onsite team, but we would remind all visitors that the event takes place in an outside, country setting over winter after dark. So please exercise caution when attending and supervise children and vulnerable adults at all times.

Some of our lighting installations are interactive, so you can enjoy some light play throughout your journey with us. All such installations will be easily identifiable and will have stewards stationed close-by to guide you with what to do. For your own safety and enjoyment, please do not touch any other lights/electrical installations and ensure children and vulnerable adults are supervised at all times, so as to ensure that they do not.
