A major illuminated trail is making its return to a country estate for the festive period. 

The grounds of Helmingham Hall will once again be adorned with thousands of lights in the lead up to Christmas transforming the gardens into an enchanted winter wonderland. 

Tickets for the event are expected to run out quickly and last year the trail was named as one of the best spots to see a light display in the UK.

A spokesman for the estate said: "We are so excited to share that the Illuminated Garden Trail is coming back for 2024 and tickets will be launched later this month."
