Hestercombe Gardens has confirmed the dates of this year's Illuminate Christmas lights trail.

The event near Taunton takes place at Hestercombe House and Gardens and it is set to be ‘bigger and brighter’, according to organisers.

The lit up paths will draw up towards the Great Cascade, towards Sibyl’s Temple and back down past the Pear Pond and into the Formal Garden.

Hestercombe states on its website: "This stunning experience is three times as long as last year, so prepare to be awe-inspired at the beautiful gardens as they come to life this season."
