Winter Magic at The Savill Garden


Discover the Winter Magic at The Savill Garden this December. Be enchanted by our family Gingerbread Trail through The Savill Garden, take a delightful ride on the stunning Edwardian Carousel or become a magical woodland creature with Fascinating Faces, before enjoying hearty winter dishes and naughty sweet treats in the Savill Garden Kitchen.

And as we get closer to Christmas Day, the magic increases ... 

Winter Magic

Join in the holiday cheer and listen to live performances of songs of the season in The Savill Building performed by local school children on 05, 08, 11 and 15 December.

The magnificent Edwardian carousel returns to the front of The Savill Building from 16 - 23 Dec and 26 Dec – 1 Jan, and this year, there will be another little carousel appearing too; just for smaller ones! Each ride is £2 per person.  

Entry into The Savill Garden is free throughout December - car park charges apply. At this time of year, the patchwork of winter interest in the Garden combines beautifully with mixes of colours, textures and scents. Follow the Gingerbread family trail from 1 Dec, finding some of the stars of the Garden, with games and activities for children from 5 – 10 years old. Cost per trail £3.50.* What’s more, there’ll be a tasty treat waiting at the end!

*Car park charges apply and The Savill Garden is closed on 24 & 25 Dec.

Fascinating Faces return to The Savill Building in the school holidays. By waving their face-painting magic wand they will transform your little ones into fairies, elves and woodland creatures like Sprucy Spriteycus, Whiffleflame the tree elf or Gigglewillow the robin. Face painting will be in The Savill Building from 21 – 23 Dec & 27 Dec – 1 Jan. £3.50 per child.**

**Midday until 4pm. Face painting is only available for children 3 years and older. 

Christmas shopping

The Savill Garden gift shop is filled with fantastic Christmas gifts, decorations and special tasty treats. There are even Poinsettias from the Royal Greenhouse. 

Gift Memberships are a wonderful Christmas present to share with any loved one. Visiting the Gardens and wider Great Park offers so many opportunities to get outside, relax in the beautiful surroundings and experience the natural wonder of Windsor Great Park.
