The Enchanted Winter Garden returns to Antrim Castle Gardens from Friday 7 December - Monday 17 December, creating a magical Christmas experience for family and friends. Bigger and better than before, come and see the Gardens transformed into an Enchanted World.

Returning this year is our ‘Big Wheel’ – a 35m Ferris Wheel offering breath taking views over Antrim and beyond, just one of the highlights of the dazzling array of attractions. This year we have a number of new features, which include a Vintage Wave Swinger, a Victorian Helter Skelter and an Extended Wonderland Wood.

A Festive Fayre market will offer an array of warming winter foods while the Olde Christmas Inn will spread further Christmas cheer with hot chocolate mallow cups to mulled wine. The Baubles and Bows gift and craft shop, where you can pick up some Christmas gifts and local musicians will provide an atmospheric soundtrack, to accompany the tinkling music of the old-fashioned Carousel.

Take a trip on the ‘Enchanted Express’ through the Forest of Fire and stop off at Santa’s workshop for a quick selfie before the children receive their Christmas treat. Sparkling Swings will glitter in the evening light and the Wave Swinger will take its passengers high into the night sky.

Enhanced by street theatre and themed animation throughout, with fire-eaters and magical characters to enchant and engage, bringing every corner of the site to life, with surprises at every turn.

Sessions have been introduced to maximise your enjoyment and minimise queue times, with the event closing to all at 21:00 – last admission 20:00, however, we do recommend a minimum of 90 minutes to get the full enchantment experience. Tokens are required for the main attractions with each token being the equivalent to £1. When booking your tickets why not take advantage of our token offer and get 12 tokens for the price of 10 if you prebook. Tokens can be collected on arrival.

Get your Christmas off to a great start with a visit to Enchanted Winter Garden.
