Groups & Coaches
Welcome to a winter attraction that’s magical, mystical, memorable and much more!
Stay in the resort with your group and take time to explore Bournemouth’s Christmas Tree Wonderland – a unique trail featuring a number of beautiful glittering trees from around the world as well as other festive illuminations.
Opening on 17 November 2023 and running through until 1 January 2024, the Christmas Tree Wonderland trail includes a 60ft feature tree with light shows set to music along the trail, taking visitors across the town.
Lighting features include the 10m Changing Tree of Light, a cascading waterfall, giant reindeer, polar bears, a giant stocking full of presents and sparkling trees representing cities from around the world including Kyiv, Lucerne and Seattle.
Visitors are led from the Lansdowne precinct to the Triangle, and down to the square, where you’ll find an open-air alpine village experience at the centre, into the Victorian lower gardens and onto the seafront where the giant bauble glistens for that selfie moment.
Bournemouth square features a traditional Christmas market selling all manner of delicious hot beverages, yuletide treats and festive trinkets. Plans also include the return of the popular alpine bar and the Skate ice rink.
