Coleton Aglow - Coleton Fishacre
Discover Coleton Fishacre in a new light; the house and garden are lit for an opulent 1920s Christmas party. The illuminated route leads you around the garden and inside to see the festivities of the house decorated for a 1920s Christmas party.
You'll be able to try on your party outfit in the handling room, listen to party music playing in the Saloon, and soak up the opulent atmosphere. In the garden you'll be able to see the house, trees and exotic features bathed in festive light as you follow the circular route.
Please dress warmly as there is so much to see in the garden. Don't forget to bring a torch as the car parks will be dark. The garden is steep in places, but a shorter accessible route is available if you're not up for the full 45 minute walk.

Devon Train of Lights
For the very first time in the UK, and possibly the world, you are invited to take a trip on our brand new, magical Christmas Train of Lights!
This truly spectacular illuminated journey starts at Queen's Park Station, Paignton, where our train with vintage carriages await you - decorated with thousands of lights. Fifteen minutes later, once you've had time to settle back into your seat, you will arrive at Churston Station where the dazzling show begins. As the anticipation builds and mere moments after leaving Churston, you will be propelled through the 450-metre technicolour Greenway tunnel that leads you onto the enchanted forest which is transformed by a multitude of lights and feature displays into a nocturnal extravaganza. The breath-taking show ends as you leave the forest only to be greeted by the twinkling lights of Dartmouth reflected on the river Dart. After a quick turnaround at Kingswear you will be on your way back to Paignton to experience the spectacle from a different direction - be sure to swap sides of the carriage to gain the best views of both sides of the stunning light show. You also have the opportunity to upgrade and experience the Train of Lights in the Devon Belle observation carriage. These tickets will be on sale on the train, strictly on a first come first served basis and priced at £7.50 per person (cash only on board).
This is a fully ticketed event so pre-booking is essential. Please ensure you arrive at least 30 minutes before your Train of Lights departure time. The Head of Steam café will be open serving tea, coffee, (fabulous!) hot chocolate and snacks. Toilets are available at the station and on the train. The experience lasts for 90minutes and onboard refreshments will also be available.
