Thousands of twinkling lights will take you on a seasonal nautical journey!


Enter a world of Christmas in Poole this year, with this brand-new FREE Christmas attraction! Be prepared to be dazzled as thousands of twinkling lights take you on a nautical journey that starts at the gateways to Poole; the Twin Sails Bridge, Hunger Hill and The Lighthouse.  

Once through these iconic structures, immerse yourself in a magical maritime Christmas as you follow the light trail from Falkland Square, through the High Street and onto Poole Quay, culminating in the glistening lit-up harbour. 

Featuring a number of impressive light installations, including a 5-metre tall ship, a giant anchor, an impressive 120-metre maritime curtain of lights to give you a bespoke ‘under the sea’ experience, several lit-up Christmas trees ranging in size between 8 and 11 metres, a couple of walk-through structures, light projections and glistening overhangs, let us take you on a captivating journey like no other! 

This enchanting light festival offers much more than just light installations, with plans for  funfair rides, a Christmas themed market selling traditional fare, and unique festive food and drinks offerings. What are you waiting for, plan your visit today!
