Christmas Tree Wonderland 2019 – What to Expect This Year

It’s nearly that time again. And we’re delighted to welcome the Christmas Tree Wonderland back to Bournemouth!

It took the town by storm last year. And now, the Christmas Tree Wonderland is back. The festive trail spanned all of the town centre’s key locations, including the Square, the gardens, Lansdowne and Horseshoe Common, among other places. So, for its 2019 visit, what’s new and what’s coming back?

New Features

Last year, the trail had several quirky and unusual features. Remember the Upside-Down House in the Triangle, for example? That will not be returning. However, new features this year include the Polar Walk and a giant reindeer. Plus, added shimmer to the Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Golf on Bournemouth Pier.

Returning Features

One of the things that made the Christmas Tree Wonderland so special was the sheer number of trees involved. Over 100, to be precise. Some of them were replicas of those from major cities around the globe, including Warsaw, Seattle and Moscow. And they will be back this year.

The giant animated Christmas tree will also be returning, back in its spot in the lower gardens. Like last year, this will feature regular light and music shows. Also all your favourite illuminated figures, such as the gingerbread family, the giant teddy and the giant bauble in the Triangle.

When Does the Christmas Tree Wonderland Open?

You may have seen construction beginning on the skating rink in the gardens, plus other bits and pieces around town. The official opening ceremony for the 2019 Christmas Tree Wonderland is Friday 15th November. Free entry for all, though be mindful the event was very busy last year. If you want to be down the pier in time, we’d recommend starting early.

The trail will be open until 2nd January, so plenty of time to visit and enjoy.
