We had a lovely time. Lovely little light trail with some nice bits. We hired a chalet at the end and had drinks brought to us and some food. The staff were all friendly. Not in the same league as blenheim but still a nice family night out.

Winter light trail. We decided to visit the new winter light trail to 1. To Support local business / charity and 2. To set of our Christmas spirit.

It was a beautiful walk but it most definitely was not spectacular like it was advertised. It was very over priced and a rip off for parking being charged £3 on top of entry when normally parking is free I believe.

The food stalls, drinks and entertainment at the end was lovely. It felt really festive.

There was so much potential to add so much more.
I hope with this being the first one, that next year they listen to the feedback and add more lights or lower the price to make it more affordable.

"Prepare to be blown away by the festive spectacle of lights, smoke machines and so much more" Chronicle. "Step into the breathtaking Northampton Winter Light Trail at Delapré Abbey this Christmas!"www.winterlighttrail.co.uk.whilst this was a lovely trail & walk, we were not blown away, nor were the lights breath-taking. The walled garden could have been HUGELY improved as an initial 'scene setter' and intro to the walk other than just one simple large light display. 11 year old retorted that the walk would be boring if this was it. There were some lovely bits like the huge bauble and disco 'maze' which was not really a maze but the snow was nice for the children. I just felt it lacked somewhat for the price in comparison to Blenheim & Waddenhoe for example. There could have been more light boxes of interesting scenes. The walk after the garden was just a load of lanterns through the trees .... More could be done on ground level here. More interactive displays needed. Get schools, colleges, the Uni, artists, groups involved to submit light works. Not worth the ticket price as it is. More LESS EXTORTIONATE foodie stalls please. Love the toasting marshmallows though £1.50 for one large marshmallow was over priced. £2 for water OVERPRICED. Good parking and stewards overseeing parking. But to pay when you've paid a high price for the ticket is just extorting money and being greedy and is unfair.

Avoid the Light Trail like the plague. £15 each for the worst light trail ever. There were no decent exhibits, the walk was so dark, a little bit odd considering it was a light trail. Most of the lights were no better than you would see walking your locality.
There were big gaps between lights, and even the strings which were meant to be illuminated to show off different colour was so dim it was laughable.
We were surprised to find no queues and now know why.
We’ve been to a few around the country but this was farcical. Even the house was lit up with a few uplighters only, and to show off local school projects by lighting an area and showing a few baubles tied up with fishing wire was ridiculous. I tripped in the dark a couple of times, it was dangerous.
One of the lovely things at these types of events as the centre pieces but even that was horrendous, it consisted of a canopy , with uneven lights.
One area was shown as a Forest Disco. This area was simply a very underwhelming music track, so quiet with a few basic disco lights.
We got to a food area, £4.60 for a tiny

Santas Grotto was fantastic. We didn't know what to expect and we were.pleasantly surprised. Santa read a poem to the children, spoke to them all as they sat together, got a gift and decorated christmas baubles. Definitely will come again. Grey value for money too!

Extremely poor value for money light trail experience.
Its such a shame to leave such a negative review as normally Delapre Abbey offer great events which are reasonably priced and offer a good experience.
The light trail was a complete waste of time and money if I am totally honest. What could have been a brilliant experience was just lacking in every way. The larger installations were good however the trail was so dark, which for a light trail is bizarre. Between the main points it looked like someone had randomly chucked some cheap fairy lights at the odd tree. Would have been great to have some Christmas music playing on the walk round as I think that would have made the experience a little bit more festive feeling.
Away from the light trail the event was advertised as have a selection of street food vendors, all that was there was a extortionatly priced frankfurter stall, basic frankfurter £6.50 and £3 two marshmallows on a stick for taosting , there was another stall selling other food which we didn't really look at but was a far cry from what I would expect from the promised selection of independent street food.
Think the organisers need to seriously look at the experience offered and I hope this lack lustre event doesn't put people off other events organised at delapre Abbey.

If I could give this so called light trail zero stars I would……….. To charge a family of 4 a total of £57 is quite frankly absurd. The so called light trail is pathetic and it’s as if someone went to a B&Q and bought £500 worth of fairy lights and threw the on some bushes and trees. Just when we thought it would get better the trail ended and we were at the extortionately priced stalls where you have to re-mortgage your home in order to buy a small bag of pic’n’mix. A family with three kids in front of us paid just shy of £24 for their children.
The lights didn’t last any longer then 20 minutes.
As we drove into the entrance to the abbey we were directed into a field and immediately got stuck in the mud where other customers had to assist and push the car whilst the staff member walked off. The decorations weee made from local school kids and certainly not enough to have any sort of creative impact.
Quite honestly I could have gone to one of the local streets in my area and driven up the street looking at their lights as they beat the socks off this absolute con of an event.
No sooner had we driven out of the boggy field I sent an email stressing my disgust and requesting some sort of refund. They deliberately ignored the fact of the poor light trail and tried to focus on the wet weather and the car getting stuck. I accept they have no control over weather but they did not address my complaint. I then emailed again asking for someone to address my complaint and they just stated they would not be issuing a refund.
This is nothing to do with the Abbey and it is clear this is some company with little to no interest in Christmas and paying customers satisfaction. Instead all they want is your money. SHAME ON YOU. I would urge anyone considering going to this to take your children to a local street to see some lights instead and save your money.

We visited the Illumination trail which we understand isn't part of Delapre and rather hired to a company who then produce the display. It however is a showcase of the Abbey and definitely not a good one.

On entry to the car park no one was advising you, and the over flow was so muddy, a gentleman had to help push our car out before it got stuck in the mud! We then went to tell an agent to close the overflow because people will get stuck. He didn't care.

The Illumination trail itself was abysmal. Three years before we went to Blenheim Palace, it is more expensive but it was brilliant with music playing with the lights. Real fire. Unusual decorations.... this was lights wrapped around trees and Halloween decorations used in place of Christmas ones. I mean, there was even a Christmas cauldron?! What the hell is that? And a 'magic maze' consisting of bushes with lights on, that isn't a maze. Most of the decorations where created by children with various markers. Why am I paying £18 for ticket and parking to see children's school projects?

The area was so muddy you were scared you'd fall. Dreadful experience. We won't be back and we suggest you don't go either. Drive around your local neighbourhood instead, cheaper and better lights.

Car park overflow was in grass area so has turned to mud also a large ramp which scraped our car underside. Our car got stuck parking but luckily people around to help free us. I saw car park attendants freeing a few others.
A few of the displays did not work and lots of mud on the path, only heard one music installation.
Booked a cabin for food/drinks but when we asked about our cabin got told to find an empty one - it appears that you don't need to book and pay the extra fee.
After food, went to leave and found no attendants in car park - luckily a few people helped as we got stuck in the mud again.

Car park should be fully using parking grids and paths should be mulched/changed to highly drained paths.

Winter light trail was a disaster! The lights had failed, poor communication and mismanagement. No music around the walk and the big displays were not lit up. Was an expensive waste of money! Will be seeing if a refund can be requested.
