A festive lights event.
The perfect family day out. Come and enjoy our amazing gardens, follow the woodland sculpture trail and discover a unique collection of vintage aircraft, all set in 875 acres of parkland at Old Warden Park.
What makes your perfect day out with the kids? Is it the small pleasures such as a picnic by the lake or making big discoveries like seeing some of the oldest flying machines in the world?
In our Swiss Garden, you’ll find the perfect selfie background and how about a chat with the mechanics in our workshop while they restore vintage aircraft? Then relax with a locally made slice of cake and barista coffee as the children wear themselves out in our large play area - completely family friendly.
"Great collection of planes and great to see them taking off and landing so close by, brilliant play area and gorgeous gardens and parkland."
