Shuttleworth in Lights 2022


This year our illuminated trail theme is Big Bold Colour, and for the first time ever, we will be shining the spotlight on all six of the World Famous Shuttleworth Collection hangars of aircraft and vehicles.

Start the adventure with a mulled drink from the Coffee Pod to keep you warm and merry as you enter Hangar 6, and work your way down the Collection to Hangar 1. Along the way, discover the hangars in a world of light and sound like never before. Now is the time for a pitstop at the Runway Café for festive treats and much more; before you rejoin the trail, don’t forget to get your Christmas shopping at the Gift Shop, and then when you are ready, head towards the Swiss Garden. This year see a new route and direction around the garden, making the most of the theme with big, bold colour statements throughout. Take in the beauty of the Woodland Walk set to the side of the Swiss Garden, another new feature of this year’s trail. As you leave the Woodland Walk head towards Paddock 4, here you have a choice either carry on the route or take a visit to Shuttleworth House for our Christmas Gift Fair, once you’ve had your fill of shopping, rejoin the route at Paddock 4 and continue through the remainder of the trail in the Swiss Garden, see more of the stunning features and specimen trees, winding your way back to the  Runway Cafe and Gift Shop for one once chance to grab some goodies before you leave. 

Don’t forget that Glow Sticks are on sale from the Box Office, or you can add them to your basket online and collect them at the Box Office on arrival.

Depending on your speed, the 1.2-mile trail should take around 1.5 – 2.5 hours. We have added two shortcuts if required; see the downloadable map link below for more details.

We ask everyone to keep moving to ensure there is no backlog. Parents are asked to keep children with them at all times. Toilets can be found along the trail in different locations. Please wear warm, comfortable clothing and footwear. Most of the trail is on hardstanding; however, some grass crossings exist.

The Runway Cafe and Coffee Pod will serve hot and cold drinks, treats and snacks until 21.00 each night. The Gift Shop will be open until 21.00 each evening with a wonderful section of gifts, cards, toys and much more. In order to ensure our staff are well rested we cannot keep catering and shop areas open past 21.00; therefore recommend guests visit before entering the Swiss Garden.

Dogs – We welcome well-behaved dogs on Thursdays Only. All dogs must be on a lead, and all owners must have poo bags.
