Mount Stewart Festival of Light Event. Ten Magical Nights.

I'd heard good things about the Festival of Light at Mount Stewart, which returns this year from 20th-29th November.

The preview night was wet & cold, and on the drive over we almost turned back three times, but I'm so glad we wrapped up and persisted!

The house, lawns and lake walk are brought to life with grand & magical displays complete with atmospheric music. Booking is essential, you can do so here.

I've lots of lovely photos, but much like photos of fireworks, you have to really be there to experience the scale of the light installations.

There are also large tepees with open fires to keep warm and dry in, with views of the lawns.

It's a wonderful experience for all ages, and we will definitely make it a yearly event. The weather next year can only be better than our experience this year, and we still loved it!
