Magical Lantern Festival Open

The Magical Lantern Festival, organised by Weli Creative, London’s first Chinese Lantern Festival is now open.

The festival will be open between Wednesday 3 February and Sunday 6 March 2016 (closed Tuesday 23rd Feb & Monday 29th Feb).

As well as an array of illuminated animals – including a gigantic dragon and exotic creatures such as giraffes, monkeys and elephants reminiscent of when the sixth Duke of Devonshire had a menagerie of animals strolling through his pleasure gardens, there are also a variety of colourful floral lights, including a handmade Camellia lantern in celebration of the Camellia Show.

Throughout the festivals, the Gardens will remain open daily from 7am until 4.30pm.

The entrance for Chiswick House Gardens to visit the Lantern Festival is situated just off the westbound A4 and clearly marked by a brown tourist board entrance sign.
