Welcome to the Support Centre

Is there a relaxed session at Christmas at Wimpole?

Wednesday 6th December will see the Illuminated Trail open early at 4pm for audiences with specific access requirements. These slots allow 45 minutes before the main evening audience start out on the trail.


These sessions are created for young people and adults who would love to experience the Christmas at Wimpole illuminated trail without the usual numbers of people and at reduced audio volumes. These sessions will also be early enough that they will just about start in twilight making it a less daunting transition in to the dark.


The capacity of these sessions will be limited to ensure that the trail remains less crowded and more relaxed. Audiences will be the first group on-site and therefore all areas will be relatively clear.


It should be noted that on many of our trails the path network is not tarmac, and although there are stewards along the route to assist you, the trail will follow the natural contours of the venue. When booking, please talk to our staff about any additional support you may need for exiting the illuminated trail through quieter areas or help with parking closer to the start of the trail.


Wimpole are able to hire out one of their mobility scooters/wheelchairs on the evening of Wednesday 6th December. Customers will have to call 01223 206000 and press option 2 for the Visitor Welcome team to make a booking. Ticket prices for these special access sessions are the same as the rest of illuminated trail – with free carer tickets where required. To book these sessions, please click here.
