Tickets on sale for winter illuminations at the RHS Gardens

Tickets for Glow at the RHS Gardens* go on sale this week (from 2 August) as the world’s leading gardening charity prepares to light up all five of its gardens this winter for magical moments throughout the festive season. The popular outdoor illuminations trails return once more to RHS Gardens Wisley, Harlow Carr, Hyde Hall and Rosemoor, while RHS Garden Bridgewater stages its own version of Glow for the very first time.

Giving visitors the chance to experience the five RHS Gardens in a whole new light, the twinkling winter walks are unique to each location and highlight some of the season’s most spectacular sights after dark.

At RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, exciting new light displays await visitors on an illuminated trail taking in the enchanting woodland for the first time, with the garden’s most iconic features lit up in technicolour. Selected dates from 18 November – 29 December 2021. For more information and to book, visit

After the sell-out success of its first event in 2020, Glow returns to RHS Garden Hyde Hall, near Chelmsford in Essex. As well as an extended run of dates, a longer route for 2021 will see visitors journey through areas including the Australia and New Zealand Garden, while the famous Dry Garden will be all aglow. Selected dates from 10 November 2021 to 1 January 2022. For more information and to book, visit

A brand new illuminated experience awaits at RHS Garden Rosemoor, in Great Torrington, Devon, with visitors enjoying a new, longer voyage through the magical, misty Lower Woodland Walk, with a shorter option available for less mobile visitors. Selected dates from 18 November – 30 December 2021. For more information and to book, visit

At RHS Garden Wisley near Woking in Surrey, where last year’s event sold out in days, the popular display inside the magnificent Glasshouse will return, with new light shows and atmospheric music to discover around the garden.
