Glow Wild returns for 2023

Sussex's ultimate festive trail is celebrating its tenth anniversary, featuring ten brand new installations for our milestone year plus lots more magical surprises.

As darkness falls, the gardens are brought to life with beautifully hand-crafted winter lanterns and captivating light installations created by leading artists.

This year, Glow Wild celebrates the sublime, inviting you to become part of the trail and discover awe-inspiring moments in nature.

Limited capacity and timed entry slots make early booking essential. Don't miss out – book now.
